Did You Know?


Most oddly, Remington Steele, who is supposed to be a major film buff, tells Laura that there has never been a film version of Agatha Christie's famous novel, "The ABC Murders". How could he have forgotten the 1966 MGM version (retitled "The Alphabet Murders", admittedly) starring Tony Randall, Robert Morley and Anita Ekberg. See more »


Throughout the episode there are references to "Los Angeles owls" hockey team. Towards the end, when inside the stadium, a basketball court is present, not an ice rink. See more »


Millicent Fairbush: [Speaking to Remingtone Steele] Poor Butchy. He had some great moves, and he wasn't a bad hockey player, either.

Steele Eligible
22 September 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

A Los Angeles magazine attracts attention with its list of the the five most eligible bachelors. It includes sports stars and a doctor. People interested in money. Remington Steele is among them.

However someone is out to kill the people on the list. Victor Janoff the founder of the magazine is behaving very strangely and he doesn't like the shallow nature of celebrity.

Steele is having a nice time being accompanied by gorgeous airheads. When one of the other eligible bachelors is electrocuted in the hot tub, he and Laura are determined to find the killer.

Pretty soon Steele is incapacitated by a broken leg and gets a chance to emulate James Stewart in Rear Window.

An enjoyable episode but it really is off the charts when it comes to a logical plot. The ending is very convoluted and silly. It shows because the director just ends it and goes to the next scene to wrap things up.

Veteran British actor Roy Dotrice lends some dignity to the proceedings.
