Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Steele: Charles Laughton. Witness for the Prosecution. Had a stroke; couldn't walk upstairs.
      Actually, Charles Laughton's character didn't have a stroke; he had a heart attack. It's emphasized many times in the movie, so a film connoisseur such as Mr. Steele should remember it.

    • Murphy says it has been four years since they'd left Havenhurst Detective Agency. It contradicts with "Red Holt Steele," in which the goons at Varicorp say Laura has been employed with Remington Steele Investigations for the last 3.5 years. It makes 2.5 years without Remington Steele in the picture andsix more months while she had her own agency. Three years, and one more unaccounted for, unless she was unemployed for a year, which is unlikely, knowing Laura. The same times as in "Red Holt Steele" also appear in "Forged Steele," in which Laura says the Remington Steele Investigations is the product of six years of hard work, meaning it's a little over three years with Remington Steele in the picture and about 2.5 years without him. It also contradicts with what Laura says in the coffin in "Dreams of Steele" about "three years of building up the agency," which means no more than a year and a half without Remington Steele in the picture. What Laura says in the current episode also contradicts with what she tells Alessandra Henry in "Bonds of Steele," that she had to pretend for four years.
