Remington Steele

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Remington Steele was Pierce Brosnan before James Bond - he was the archetypal private detective - suave, sophisticated and self assured, who always had a pretty girl to add the necessary glamour and love interest - a definite prequel to his later Bond persona.

Do You Remember Remington Steele?

Do You Remember Remington Steele?

    The "core" of Reming Steele was that it was a small detective agency run by a woman, Laura Holt (played by Stephanie Zimbalist) who found noone wanted to hire a female private investigator. So she invented a male to run the agency & thought up the name "Remington Steele", after the name of a typewriter brand. Noone ever saw this Mr Steele, since there wasn't a Mr Steele. But.... Pierce Bronson,a suave & very likeable conman, unbelievably good looking - came upon the scene, figured out what Laura Holt was up to with her fictional character boss, and stepped into the shoes of the fictional character Remington Steele, making him "real".
