Over the weekend I had lunch with a friend of mine. Somehow the topic drifted towards when we were closeted and effeminate children. My lunch companion blurted out that he was excited to find out that Natalie Wood died. Because somehow this meant that Robert Wagner would be able to marry Stefanie Powers. Or, more importantly Jonathan Hart could really be married to Jennifer Hart. Seriously what gay boy in the ‘80s didn’t like Hart to Hart.
I didn’t know that Hart to Hart actually ran five seasons on ABC, with eight made for TV movies. When Jonathan and Jennifer got together I guess it was murder. Ratings murder. Sorry. I guess it comes down to the universal rule that little gay boys just love to watch millionaires become amateur detectives. Or, Stefanie Powers rocks.
