Trivia

The five fake passports in Remington Steele's possession are: Douglas Quintain, England (from Stand-In 1937), Michael O'Leary, Ireland (from Dark Victory 1939), John Murell, France (from Virginia City 1940), Paul Fabrini, Italy (from They Drive By Night 1940) and Richard Blaine, Australia (from Casablanca 1942). Of course, since Mr. Steele is a movie buff, these are all characters that Humphrey Bogart played in the aforementioned films. See more »

A clever classic
19 September 2000 | by Suzie TrueSee all my reviews

The 007 films are no doubt fun, but their attempts at comedy (which are admittedly not their focal point) are sad compared to the physical comedic ability and the facial expressions Brosnan exhibited on "Remington Steele." And Zimbalist was a great co-lead, as opposed to in other shows, where the female played second string. I believe this show's premise would still work today, tweaked a bit to satisfy those people still fighting for that one amendment - what was it? The main things that wouldn't work would be the hairstyles and the clothing - but those will probably come back in a decade or two. At any rate, this show is a classic.
