Sooner or later, you knew that George Hamilton was going to show up in one of these Hart to Hart reunion movies. He waited until the eighth of eight movies to make it happen, playing the evil Karl Von Ostenberg.
This episode finds the Harts heading to Munich, where Jennifer donates bone marrow to Maximilian, a little boy with leukemia. His doctor (Dwight Schultz, from TV’s The A-Team and Alone In the Dark) is amazed, because Jennifer looks exactly like his fiancee Simone, who has seemingly left him before the wedding. With an important dinner coming up, the Harts save him from an embarrassing situation by Jennifer filling in for the missing woman at an important dinner.
The last of these films, this was directed by original series director and creative consultant Tom Mankiewicz, who also directed the Tom Hanks version of Dragnet. He was also the writer of Ladyhawke, the two Richard Donner Superman movies, Diamonds Are Forever, Live & Let Die, The Man With the Golden Gun and The Cassandra Crossing. It was written by Bill Froehlich and Mark Lisson, who also wrote Return to Horror High.
