Since reopening the death investigation of Natalie Wood more than 13 months ago, detectives have interviewed more than 100 witnesses and gathered piles of new evidence. But they said the one person they are most interested in talking to has so far refused several requests for interviews: Wood's husband, actor Robert Wagner. Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. John Corina said Wagner is the only person on the boat at the time Wood drowned off Catalina Island in 1981 not to speak to detectives assigned to the new inquiry.

There are movie stars and then there are movie stars -- performers who have such a unique and often indescribable quality that their very name connotes the magic of the cinema. Audrey Hepburn was definitely a movie star . "Everybody loves Audrey," says Ian Birnie, director of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's film department. "No one ever looked or sounded like Audrey Hepburn -- not even remotely. She stood in complete opposition to the '50s bombshell women -- the Marilyns, the Jane Russells and Janet Leighs."

Robert Wagner gets a bit emotional explaining how he came up with the title of the memoir he wrote with Scott Eyman, "Pieces of My Heart." After receiving a rough manuscript of the autobiography, he recalls, he decided to read the chapter about Barbara Stanwyck to his wife, Jill St. John, and a friend. The veteran Stanwyck and Wagner had a secret four-year relationship in the 1950s when he was in his early 20s and she was in her mid-40s. "She was a wonderful woman," Wagner says.

"Hustle" is back tonight for a fourth six-episode series of light-hearted larceny -- such a cheery, melodious word, "larceny." Tracing the adventures of a lovable gang of London-based con artists, this AMC/BBC co-production is not a show to look too closely at, built as it is on a scaffolding of improbability and moral disingenuousness. But if you do not ask too much of it, it will not ask too much of you, and so a happy agreement may be reached.

IN the 1960s, they were the sauve and debonair private eyes and spies who drew millions to TVs for weekly tongue-in-cheek adventures. Now, Robert Vaughn ("The Man From U.N.C.L.E.") and Robert Wagner ("It Takes a Thief") have reunited for a single episode of AMC's "Hustle," a slick "Ocean's Eleven"-type con series, in which the still-charming actors, both in their 70s, will match wits and tailors to charm a new generation of viewers.

Most working men heading into their 50th year in the same business would happily accept a gold watch and lose themselves on the golf links or in a Barcalounger. Not Robert Wagner, who instead continues to immerse himself in movie roles this past year ranging from the over-the-top spoof "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" to the surreal drama "Crazy in Alabama." Currently, Wagner is on screen in Ron Shelton's boxing movie, "Play It to the Bone."
