Jonathan Hart (Robert Wagner) was a self-made millionaire, the C.E.O. of Hart Industries, a global conglomerate. His gorgeous wife Jennifer (Stefanie Powers) was a freelance journalist. They were both amateur sleuths, and in every episode found themselves up to their eyeballs in murder, smuggling, theft, and international espionage. They also managed to find time to snuggle together, as they loved each other very much. Max (Lionel Stander) was their loyal, gravelly-voiced butler, cook, and chauffeur, and Freeway their pet canine.Written by

This is basically an American update of Nick and Nora Charles; fram Dashell Hammett's Thin Man Series of books, where you have a bickering rich couple playing detective and fighting crime. Nick and Nora had a whole series of successful movies in the 40s; which producer wunderkind Aaron Spelling dusted off for this 70s remake. See more »
This is my boss, Jonathan Hart - a self-made millionaire. He's quite a guy. This is Mrs. H. She's gorgeous. She's one lady who knows how to take care of herself. By the way, my name is Max. I take care of *both* of them, which ain't easy; 'cause when they met... it was *murder*!

Max's opening narration differs in some episodes. Most episodes have him finish by declaring "When they met, it was murder!" but some episodes have him saying "Their hobby is ... murder!" See more »
My parents were the ones who introduced me to Hart to Hart, because they used to tape the show. It is really one of the better TV shows ever made. Shows nowadays are just really shallow. I don't agree with the fact that it's dated, because people can still relate to it, I think. Lionel Stander, as Max, is really one-of-a-kind, and adds a wonderful warmth to the screen.
Stephanie Powers and Robert Wagner make a great screen couple, and a spectacular team. Their chemistry is fantastic!
The only thing I don't think is good about Hart to Hart is the way Jennifer Hart depends on Jonathan so much, when she's in danger.
