Great Robert Wagner Film!
20 February 2004 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Viewed this film in the movie houses and then was able to tape this film from TV. I thought that Robert Wagner(Mike Banning),"Hart to Hart",TV series'79 showed his great acting skills and his charming ways as a golfer who was playing the role with his game of golf and acted like a real LADIES MAN! with all the wives and charming available hot looking women. Jill St. John,(Angela Barr),"Tony Rome",67,put on the charm for Mike Banning and was pretty hot even in 1967! Gene Hackman(Tommy Del Gaddo)"The Split",'68 was thin young and just starting out and from his performance, you just knew he would be a super star as he is today! I also enjoyed the great musical theme song that was played through out the picture, which was written by a great musician and composer,"QUINCY JONES". If you can catch this movie on TV, it is worth watching, and especially if you like the game of GOLF and all the things that GO ON, in the CLUB HOUSE!
