Publisher's Summary

The career of Stefanie Powers is one of so many stage, screen, and television credits that her name alone recalls memories as varied as her roles-on screen and off. From movie roles including John Wayne's daughter in McLintock! and Lana Turner's rival in Love Has Many Faces, to being terrorized by Tallulah Bankhead in Die, Die My Darling and befriending a Volkswagen in Herbie Rides Again, she stepped onto the television screen as the sexy secret agent April Dancer in The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. and the jet-setting, crime-solving wife of Robert Wagner in Hart to Hart.

She is also an award-winning stage actress, fitness advocate, and an internationally recognized animal conservationist.

A natural beauty groomed for show business at an early age, Stefanie Powers began her career at the tail end of the Studio System, a dynamic education in star quality and Hollywood history she happily admits was, "one hell of a ride." Privileged to have worked with some of the greatest names in the Hollywood firmament, Stephanie tells of the time she broke down in tears at a party over her divorce from actor Gary Lockwood, only to be comforted with a cocktail and the hard-won, been-there advice from two guests she had never met: Elizabeth Taylor and Ava Gardner.

This is One from the Hart, Stefanie Powers's story of a resourceful, empowered, and atypical celebrity life, told with all the candor, wit, and wisdom that have come to embody the woman herself.

    "Quite an Interesting Life"

    I enjoyed listening to this audiobook but would have liked more of Stephanie's story and a little less of William Holden (even though he was apparently "the love of her life"). The many stories of famous stars, producers, and directors was fascinating to me and the wonderful relationship between Stephanie and her Mother was so very heartwarming. Ms. Power's narration was just perfect.

    Audiobook was provided for an honest review.

    "Great audio performance, spotty story though . . ."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Stefanie's diction and performance of the book are excellent


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have liked a more conventional (timeline-wise) recounting of her life experience. The book jumped around a lot (both in dates and subjects). However, listening to her speak made it all worthwhile


    Which character – as performed by Stefanie Powers – was your favorite?

    Anything with an accent


    Do you think One from the Hart needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope, fine as is

    "Outstanding"

    I have been a fan since junior high school when I first saw Stefanie Powers in Hart To Hart and have loved and admired her unending work both professionally and privately with the WHWF. I found it so endearing that she narrated the audiobook as it made me feel as if she was speaking directly to me. What a classy lady!

    "Simply The Best"

    This audible rendition of Ms. Powers book was incredible! I am somewhat biased as a member of her fan club, but listening to her read her memoir in that velvety voice was such a treat. The stories about her, her family, life adventures, travels, friends and relationships, Hollywood tidbits and personal insights was made extra special to hear her voice inflections as she touched on humor and sadness in her life. I will be starting over to hear her reading of this fascinating book again tomorrow!

    "A Fan of Stefanie Powers"

    I thought it was very interesting because she came in at the end of an era when movie stars were movie stars. I enjoyed most of it but also struggled in some places as well. I liked her in Hart to Hart and I do believe that she would be bery nice to meet but she is a bit high flouting for me.

    "Fabulous!"

    Stefanie takes you on a fun, engaging ride through many of her wonderful adventures. Her narration is perfect. I felt every emotion, from laughter to empathy to tears. I was able to visualize everything through all of the details she shares. What an amazing human being! I was sad when the book ended, longing for more.
