Blood and Steel (1925)

The character’s name is Steele, but in the title they spell it Steel. They were classier back in the 1920s.

Gordon Steele (William Desmond)

Cold Steel (1921)

Steele Weir (J.P. McGowan)

Every Silver Lining (1993)
TV series

If this show had ever done a crossover with The Love Boat, they could have called it Every Silver Lining Has McLeod.

Nat Silver (Andrew Sachs)
Shirley Silver (Frances de la Tour)
Lorraine Silver (Sarah Malin)

Flower & Garnet (2002)

This one’s iffy. Does the phrase “flower and garnet” have a preexisting meaning? It doesn’t seem to. Further research is required.

Flower (Jane McGregor)
Garnet (Colin Roberts)

Remington Steele (1982)
TV series

If Pierce Brosnan married Hawkeye Pierce, what would you do about it?

Shattered Glass (2003)

The jury’s still out on whether this belongs here, because Stephen Glass is a real person. Hmm.

Stephen Glass (Hayden Christensen)

Steele Justice (1987)

Probably the least memorable of the mid-1980s plethora of “Vietnam vets, back in action” movies.

John Steele (Martin Cove)

Stone Cold (1991)

1991: Vanilla Ice in Cool as Ice. Hulk Hogan in Suburban Commando. Brian Bosworth in Stone Cold. Was there an actors’ strike or something?

Joe Huff/John Stone (Brian Bosworth)

The Glass House (2001)

This is one of those movies that HBO must only have to pay about $11.50 to air, because it’s on all the time. Now, I like a good Leelee Sobieski vehicle as much as the next guy, which is to say: not at all. But there’s something captivating about Stellan Skarsgård’s performance, a bold feat of scenery-chewing I would not have believed a Swedish man capable of.
