When I think of Stefanie Powers, I think of her eyes and her little baby nose and big sweet cheeks and sweet voice to match. She is literally one of the sweetest and prettiest things that has ever come out of Hollywood. And then you look at her résumé and you’re looking at The Girl From Uncle, Love Has Many Faces, where she works with Lana Turner, Ruth Roman, Cliff Robertson, Hugh O’Brien and many others and you know she’s good enough to work with the best. Which is sort of the way you judge athletes in pro team sports. Are they good enough to play with and play against the best, or not. Stefanie has always been great enough to do both.
She also did Experiment in Terror, which is one of the best crime dramas/horror movies you’ll ever see. From 1962, where she worked with Lee Remick and Glen Ford. She’s about 18-19 at that point and playing a high school student and looked even younger than that. But Hart to Hart, is perhaps not Stefanie’s best role that she’s ever had. I believe her movies are better and Hart to Hart is somewhat cheesy in comparison, but Jennifer Hart is the role that made Stefanie a huge star. She and Robert Wagner, did a great job with some pretty cheesy writing and a show that isn’t very credible. When you’re talking about a president of a corporation that essentially acts as a private detective even though his business was not detective work.
Stefanie and RJ, as they are called, made Hart to Hart from how they related with each other on the show with their chemistry and that they share a very similar sense of humor and both have great timing. Stefanie Powers, is an actress who has always had a lot to work with both personally and professionally and who has made the best of those roles from what she’s brought to them. From her physical appearance, her great voice and her delivery. And is someone who has combined very good acting ability and wit with an excellent physical appearance that has left many men remembering her and always wanting to see more from her. I’m one of her biggest fans and I hope she works forever just like Raquel Welch.
