Good-humored, intelligent lead, mostly on TV. Hartley's film career started with a leading role in Sam Peckinpah's second film, the elegiac "Ride the High Country" (1962). Other film roles included Marnie, Skyjacked and Improper Channels. The small screen had taken up much in the meantime, offering Hartley roles on the soap opera "Peyton Place" and the sitcom "The Hero", opposite Richard Mulligan. Since the mid-70s, Hartley's career has encompassed a wide range of TV-movies, including a remake of "The African Queen" (1977), "The Halloween That Almost Wasn't" (1979) and the bisexual romance "My Two Loves" (1986). She won an Emmy for a guest role on "The Incredible Hulk" and was six times nominated and brought her sunny, mature charm to hosting duties on "Today" and "The Morning Show". Recent appearances include Greys Anatomy and a recurring role on Law & Order: SVU. Hartley is probably best remembered by many for a wryly amusing series of Polaroid TV commercials in which she appeared opposite James Garner. A role in "Encino Man" (1992) marked one of several returns to the big screen.
