Steele Knuckles and Glass Jaws
11 July 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Remington Steele might look lightweight but he used to brawl in the streets of Brazil and win too. A little nugget about the Kilkenny Kid we find out about in this episode.

When a boxer finds a dead man and a baby in the locker room, his manager calls in Steele, the man he once managed as a boxer and let down.

The baby is being pursued by a gangster whose grandchild it is and he wants to raise the baby, his only direct descendant.

Steele helps out but he then finds out that Herschel 'The Hammer' Sinclair is heading for a fall in his next fight.

A decent knockabout episode but also a bit silly as well especially the boxing scenes at the end. I did like the boxer getting pumped up when classical music was played but the actor was certainly too old to be called a kid.
