Stefanie Powers - If one measures Hollywood
stars by such traditional markers as grace, beauty and sophistication, then
Stefanie Powers harkens back to Hollywood’s Golden Era when stars were the
essence of what everybody dreamed to be. And if one measures the quality of a
person by their sense of dedication, their concern for the world around them, by
their ability to step outside themselves and see the greater importance of
community and society, then Stefanie Powers exemplifies the ‘new Hollywood’
— smart, charismatic, committed and, yes, sexy.
Actress Stefanie Powers has combined a
natural curiosity and passion for knowledge, world travel and diverse cultures
into both an award-winning acting career and an equally active life of heartfelt
philanthropic work. The cornerstone of that work is the William Holden Wildlife
Foundation, a public charity dedicated to the preservation of wild animals,
which Stefanie helped to found in honor of the late actor and for which she
serves as president.
It with sadness that I tell you of
the passing of Miss Bounce ... it was necessary to send Miss B.
to the angels when her condition deteriorated to such a degree
that she had pain and low quality of life ... she told us that
she was ready by refusing to eat for the two days prior to her
We who loved her will never forget
her .... from the moment she came into our lives in 2004 ...
rescued off death row at a kill pound after her parent was
arrested and convicted for drug dealing ... Miss B. arrived at
my house as an independent, aloof and distant little being whose
personality began to transform into a joyous little human being
... with a lust for travel and car rides and any new place she
could explore .... She went on tour with me twice when I was
doing plays and became quite used to limos and hotel suites ...
she need only walk from the elevator to the room and back once
to know where she was and it was a constant source of amazement
to watch her orient herself to each new hotel or theater.
Miss Bounce was one of a kind and
they broke the mold after she was made. I feel enriched to have
had her in my life and I will miss her forever.
Thank you all for your messages of
condolence .... Bounce and I appreciate all your expressions of
(2004 - May 31, 2013)
As you have read above, Stefanie had to put Miss Bounce to sleep on
May 31. In memory of Bounce, we are arranging for a special pet tile
in her memory at the WHWF Education Center in Kenya. For anyone who
would like to make a donation to the William Holden Wildlife
Foundation in Bounce's memory, you may do so online using the below
Please Note: Stefanie is not aware of this fundraising
effort in Bounce's memory, and we would like for her to see it first
when she is in Kenya in July.

STV has produced a second series of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip for BBC Two which sees some of Britain’s best loved celebrities show off their antiques knowledge. Guests this series include former This Morning host Richard Madeley, ex-EastEnders‘ actress Pam St Clement, GMTV’s Fiona Phillips and Penny Smith, sitcom stars Richard Wilson, Don Warrington and Annette Crosbie and Hart to Hart star Stefanie Powers to name only a few.
“The new series of CART sees some more of the nations best loved celebrities hit the road and promises to be full of fun, rivalry and friendly banter. I hope viewers will love it, whether they’re already fans of the show, or new to the programme. It has proven to be must-see TV in the BBC2 schedule and we’re thrilled to be delivering a second and longer instalment for peak time television.” says Wendy Rattray, Creative Director for STV Productions.
The second twenty-episode series has been split into two runs. The first will transmit at 7pm from Monday 3rd of September, and follows the antique loving celebrities as they set off on a road trip across the UK, competing against each other to make the biggest profit buying and selling antiques. The second instalment of the series will transmit from Monday 12th November, and will see ten more pairs of celebrities take to the road.
Each celebrity will be teamed with one of the show’s regular experts, whose knowledge and experience will guide each pair through the antiques trail, giving them the best possible advantage in the competition. Travelling in classic vintage cars, the teams will be given a starting budget of £400 before starting their engines for the cross-country challenge.
Liam Keelan, Controller Daytime at BBC, adds “It will be great to have this stand-out hit back in the schedule with all the warmth and wit it brings.”
Each programme will see a different pair of celebrities put their wit and bargaining skills to the test as they set out to find hidden gems along the road and auction them off, hopefully at a profit, at the end of their trip. All money made throughout the series will be donated to the beeb’s charity, Children in Need.

The United Network Command for Law and Enforcement has a new agent in its struggle with THRUSH: The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. The girl is April Dancer (Stefanie Powers) who, assisted by partner Mark Slate (Noel Harrison) and guided by chief Alexander Waverly (Leo G. Carroll), travels the globe on assignments, using her martial-arts and espionage prowess to combat foes. This spoofy 29-Episode Spy Series in a 8-Disc Set includes a dossier of top-level guest stars – Gladys Cooper, Wally Cox, Dom DeLuise, Boris Karloff, Peggy Lee, Pernell Roberts, Gena Rowlands and Leslie Uggams among them. April Dancer (with Mary Ann Mobley playing the role) was first introduced to fans in The Moonglow Affair episode of The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
The 4 titles released at the time were the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th-produced telefilms: Hart to Hart Returns (1993), Home is Where the Hart Is (1994), Crimes of the Hart (1994), and Secrets of the Hart (1995). At the time we mentioned how strange it seemed that Sony had skipped the 4th production, 1994's "Old Friends Never Die". Well, we're pleased to tell you that the studio has filled in that hole, and is now offering an MOD-DVD release of Hart to Hart - Old Friends Never Die, sold mainly here at Sony's online store. There's an online trailer there as well. Fans will be pleased to note that Sony says this item is "newly remastered". Cost is $19.94, same as for the other four offerings.
