One from the Hart is the story of a resourceful, empowered woman and her atypical celebrity life. Stefanie tells her tale with the candour, wit, and wisdom that have come to embody the woman herself.
Stefanie Powers’ popular film and television performances include befriending a Volkswagen in Herbie Rides Again and playing the sexy secret agent April Dancer in The Girl from U.N.C.L.E., but she is probably best known for her role as Jennifer Hart in the much-loved television series Hart to Hart (1979-1984), playing one half of a husband and wife sleuthing team opposite Robert Wagner.
A natural beauty groomed for show business at an early age, Stefanie Powers began her career at the tail end of the Studio System, and recalls working with some of the true Hollywood greats, starring as John Wayne’s daughter in McLintock!, Lana Turner’s rival in Love Has Many Faces, and being terrorized by Tallulah Bankhead in Die, Die My Darling.
Co-starring with Robert Wagner in Hart to Hart not only brought her five Emmy Award nominations, but also created a working relationship that endured more than fifteen years. Through it all, Stefanie treasured the camaraderie of her close-knit community, and here she shares the priceless lessons she learned.
In a lifetime of dear friends and associates, no other had a more significant effect on Stefanie than one man: Oscar-winning actor William Holden. In this memoir, she opens up for the first time about their extraordinary nine-year relationship, a love story that ended with his tragic death as a result of his lifelong struggle with alcoholism and depression.
One from the Hart is the story of a resourceful and empowered woman, told with candour, wit and wisdom.
