Mary Martin and Mildred Natwick are guest...

Mary Martin and Mildred Natwick are guest stars in Monday's episode of "Hardcastle & McCormick," airing at 8 p.m. on ABC. They play aunts of Brian Keith's character, and naturally get caught up in a murder mystery.

Two other famous actresses, Helen Hayes and Bette Davis, star in "Murder With Mirrors," an Agatha Christie mystery story airing Feb. 20 on CBS. Hayes is returning from "A Caribbean Mystery" last season as supersleuth Jane Marple. Davis plays a friend whom Miss Marple visits, and John Mills co-stars as Davis' husband.

They did it with "The Twilight Zone," so why not "Alfred Hitchcock Presents"? Four old episodes from the director's TV series are being remade and will be strung together as a two-hour TV movie for NBC. Among the stars will be Kim Novak, Ned Beatty, John Huston and Tippi Hedren. The shows that are being done are "An Unlocked Window," "A Man From the South," "Bang! You're Dead" and "Incident in a Small Jail."

Briefly noted: Shirley MacLaine's acclaimed Broadway show will debut on the Showtime pay-TV service Feb. 11. . . . "The People's Court" will move next fall from KCOP Channel 13 to KCBS-TV Channel 2, where it will air weekdays at 3 p.m. . . . NBC has set March 10 as the rerun date for "The Burning Bed," the TV movie in which Farrah Fawcett plays an abused wife who kills her husband. . . . Tina Turner has signed to star in a concert program for Home Box Office. It'll be taped in England in March.

Robert Conrad and George Hamilton star Feb. 11 in "Two Fathers," a movie on NBC in which they play men who set out to bring their children's killers to justice. The catch is that they have to overcome their personal differences to do it: Conrad plays a steelworker, while Hamilton is a wealthy executive.
