Biography by Hal Erickson

Cambridge-educated leading man Anthony Steel had several seasons of theatrical work behind him when he first stepped before the movie cameras in 1948. His heyday was in the 1950s, a fact that can be attributed as much to his well-publicized marriage to actress Anita Ekberg as to such starring vehicles as Storm Over the Nile (the 1954 remake of The Four Feathers) and The Black Tent (1955). In the 1960s, he was often as not seen in Italian costume pictures and actioners. Anthony Steel rather surprisingly re-emerged in the 1970s as a featured player in such soft-core erotica as The Story of O, then played character parts in films like The Mirror Crack'd until his retirement in the early '80s.
