Robert Wagner is in a reflective mood. "Movies last forever," noted the veteran actor ("Broken Lance," "The Pink Panther," the "Austin Powers" series),  but the Hollywood he once knew has all but disappeared. "I turned around, and it was all gone," Wagner, 84, said recently in Beverly Hills. Known as R.J. to his friends and colleagues, he's dapper, charming, handsome and very much cut from the same cloth as the suave characters he played in the TV series "It Takes a Thief" and "Hart to Hart," in which he and Stefanie Powers played a wealthy crime-solving couple.

In her new autobiography, "One From the Hart," Stefanie Powers finally opens up on her near-decade love affair with William Holden, the Oscar-winning actor who starred in such classics as "Stalag 17," "Sunset Boulevard" and "Network.

But Holden, a notorious loner, would often slip, disappearing from view while on a bender.

Rodgers & Hammerstein's "The King and I" is much more than a cutesy pageant featuring pretty ditties. But first-time viewers may not guess that from the under-powered tour-stop production now resting its giant hoop skirt at the Pantages. Director Baayork Lee inherits bits and pieces of Christopher Renshaw's definitive 1996 Broadway revival: Roger Kirk's Thai-fusion costumes, Susan Kikuchi's restaging of Jerome Robbins' angular original choreography.

Has anyone else noticed a striking resemblance between Stefanie Powers and Stephanie Zimbalist? I think they even sound similar. Give them the same hairstyle and they could pass for sisters. Some studio out there listening? How about a movie with the two of them? Erik Britton, Universal City

What a relief to view such a quality production as "Shadow on the Sun." After the plethora of superficial, glitzy miniseries forced on us, the Beryl Markham story was indeed refreshing. Stefanie Powers gave the performance of her career. Lois Torrance, Manhattan Beach

The WASP may just be an endangered species. But not in its natural habitat, and certainly not in the plays of A.R. Gurney, the species' most able chronicler. * In Gurney's "Love Letters," at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, the playwright zeros in on two fairly typical WASP types: Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner.

For Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers--the glitzy television stars of the old NBC series "Hart to Hart"--A.R. Gurney's "Love Letters" ought to provide the chance to have a real heart-to-heart with a live audience. Wagner seems to think so. He and Powers open in the two-character play Tuesday at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts on the second leg of a four-city tour that began this week in Washington.
