Who is cool now,? He saved the lives of five other Marines during an Arctic exercise, pulling them from a tank before it broke through ice into the sea. He was assigned to the honor guard, responsible for guarding the yacht of US President Harry Truman.
I believe the greatest acting scene involves Steve McQueen was in Papillion where he has an extended stay in solitary confinement. You can feel his pain as a tortured soul in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdeS1vJNgpg .
He didn't do every stunt ( for example, he only drove c.10% of the famous Bullitt chase scene himself. And of course a stuntman did the famous jump at the end of the Great Escape. He was famously tight with money on movies. He had a business of leasing props to movie studios, and always tried to get his own props used in the movies he was in to get more money.
Mr. McQueen spent some time at Boys Republic in Chino, CA. He never forgot the influence that staying there had on him and he continued going back to inspire the troubled boys to be all that they could be. Happy viewing from Las Vegas, NV 8/29/2018

I like McQueen but watch a documentary on him...he was a grade A asshole who used a girlfriend to get where he got. When he got fat and bearded he looked insane. Then he died trying to use quack medicine to cure his very real cancer.
He did not jump the motorcycle in The Great Escape, that stunt was performed by a fella named Bud Ekins, he also did some of the car stunt driving and wrecked the motorcycle toward the end of the chase scene in Bullitt, he has a wig on so he looks like a hippie during that stunt, he was buddies with McQueen from racing motorcycles and he owned a Triumph dealership that McQueen bought bikes from, him McQueen and his brother formed a team and raced motorcycles in Europe during the filming of a movie over there and actually took a title that year, they were good racers and not just some Hollywood movie star toy project, McQueen got Ekins into the Hollywood stunt business because they were buddies, last I checked in about 2016 he was still alive and I think he even still had his motorcycle shop, for years McQueen and the studios let everyone think it was him that jumped the motorcycle in that movie but it was actually Bud Ekins.
He was Redford before Redford was Redford. Also "Love With the Proper Stranger" with Natalie Wood; "Soldier In The Rain" with Jackie Gleason; "Baby The Rain Must Fall," with Lee Remick: "Nevada Smith," with Brian Keith and Karl Malden: "The Getaway" with Ali McGraw--his off-screen affair and subsequent marriage to McGraw was given as the cause of him not being nominated as Best Actor for Papillon, for which he should not only have been nominated but should have won, when compared to Jack Lemmon's mediocre winning performance in Save The Tiger. Papillon was one of his best performances and, oddly enough, it wasn't a romantic leading role. He was depicted as "stealing" McGraw away from her husband, Paramount studio head Robert Evans. It was a mutual attraction. Nobody forced her to divorce Evans. The onboard camera mountings on the race cars in Le Mans, which he insisted on for realism were way ahead of their time. It has become a cult classic and is revered as the most authentic racing movie ever made.
Papillon is pronounced "PAP E YAWN," with the accent on the first syllable, Not "PU PILL YUN" with the accent on the second syllable. I can't believe you didn't know that!! You're showing your age. You must not have been alive when the movie came out in 1973.
I love Steve but his friend Bud Ekins did the motorcycle stunts in 'The Great Escape" and other movies not Steve, not that Steve couldn't have done the stunts himself but the movie insurance company would not allow it
one more thing. This is a very good video (some things are misleading especially about his stunt work), but what bugged me is the pronouncation of Papillon in the video. If you saw the movie, you would pronounce it like this: https://forvo.com/word/papillon/
I think right about the time Steve McQueen died the American Spirit died too. Nowadays America is completely plastic propaganda bullshit, the kind Huxley described in Brave New World. Consider the Soma/Opiate epidemic before saying I'm full of shit.
I had such a crush on him when was a teenager back in the 70's. He was not really conventionally handsome in the sense that someone like Paul Newman or Robert Redford were but there was something so attractive about him. He had a huge stage presence. I feel his best acting was in the movie Papillon. That movie never did reach the popularity of his other movies maybe because he was not in a very glamorous role such as bullet etc but imo his acting in that role was oscar worthy, same goes for Dustin Hoffman in his role in the movie.
Michelle, I thought he was handsome, but not in the pretty boy way. Robert Redford. Just my opinion. I also had a crush on Mel Gibson. And def William Holden, something about him too. I liked Cary Grant. Robert Mitchum. Of course I loved Paul Newman and Robert Redford too, but something about McQueen that surpased them all.
Holly Martinson HE WAS WAY MORE HANDSOME THEN ROBERT REDFORD OR PAUL NEWMAN COULD EVER DREAM OF BEING!!!"....... STEVE MCQUEEN WAS ONE OF MY BIGGEST CHILDHOOD CRUSHES THAT I EVER HAD ALONG WITH WILLIAM HOLDEN , JERRY LEWIS ,PETER LAWFORD , BRUCE LEE AND ELVIS PRESLEY MY CRUSHES WHEN I BECAME A WOMAN WERE MEL GIBSON,JEAN CLUADE VAN DAMME, JACKIE CHAN, MICHAEL J.

I'M A HUGE FAN OF MICHAEL JACKSON AND ALWAYS WILL BE!!!"" I HAVE PHOTOS OF ALL THE MEN I LOVE!!!!"""
Some of McQueen's films were actually not very good but have a higher status than perhaps deserved because of McQueen. _The Towering Inferno_ would be one. Also, Steve McQueen actually did not perform the jump over the barbed wire fence in _The Great Escape_ although he did perform in other riding scenes were he was actually not his character. He allegedly has a scene where he is a helmeted, goggle-wearing German motorcycle rider chasing the McQueen character.
Steve McQueen was a wife beater, womanizer and drug user. He was not cool. A fellow actor said about all he would say to you was, " Humph." Jesus turned his life around for him and he died a born again believer!
Yeah, well I printed his Stunts Unlimited t-shirt when I was in high school at what's now The Belly Up Tavern that auctioned off for $3,200, and that ain't no lie. That's how special I am, I'll have you know. ;~)
I actually, briefly, knew Steve, He lived in Santa Paula, Ca and occasionally hung around my my Fathers gas station with Von Dutch who lived right across the street in an old school bud. Steve was by nature a very quite person. He had a very unhappy childhood and could not fathom why he of all people on the planet Earth was chosen to be a highly paid movie actor. Consequently, he was "Enormously" charitable with charities for disadvantaged children. But he gets no credit for his charity because he was so quite about it.
Yes, I meant enormously charitable, but gets no credit for it. Not like celebrities today who have they're publicist take a photo of them handing a check to a wounded veteran. Steve gave BIG $$$ to charities for youth but was quite about it.

Bricolajul a ajuns in Romania in urma cu aproximativ 10 ani, insa in Statele Unite si in statele occidentale acest concept este mai vechi, si isi are originile la inceputul anilor ’50. Bricolajul se refera la capacitatea oamenilor de a crea sau repara diverse obiecte fara a apela la ajutor specializat.
Primul catalog de bricolaj pentru renovarea locuintei a aparut in 1968. Acesta a nascut conceptul de bricolaj care sta la baza lanturilor de magazine din zilele noastre. De la covoare si perdele, pana la mobilier si prefabricate, bricolajul se refera la tot ce inseamna renovarea unei locuinte in aceasta acceptiune.
Pe orlo.ro gasesti toate cataloagele de bricolaj, de la cei mai importanti comercianti. Catalog Dedeman, Catalog Praktiker, Catalog Baumax, Catalog Bricostore, Catalog Ambient si altii.
In Romania retelele de magazine pentru bricolaj sau extins rapid, cel mai important comerciant din acest segment este Dedeman, care a pornit din orasul Bacau si a ajuns sa detina magazine in cele mai importante orase din tara.
