The woman narrating in this video speaks a little too fast to support the depth of the legend of Steve McQueen. It really takes empathy in truth with the actors life in order to generate an equitable narration that honors royally the life of ''the king of cool'' actors, just like Miles Davis as ''the king of cool'' musicians. It takes a 'king' to speak about a king, unlike the tone of voice of the lady narrating who isn't yet a queen to speak royally about McQueen.

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 was too old for Papillon.

What about his movie Le Mans?
Czechbound (6 months ago)
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.

By far my favorite movie by “ The king of cool 😎 “ is Bullitt . The definite Steve Macqueen in all his glory. In my opinion the precursor to Dirty Harry.
oddis slajos (6 months ago)
Funny that there was no word about him and his Triumphs... He was one of the key factors in the 70s that Triumph motorcycles didn't go and slide into a freefall like BSA and Norton...

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

He was a nincompoop who believed in ghosts, a macho who smuthered anyone beside him with his ego. He punched a horse in the face once because it accidently stepped on his toe. What an idiot.

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.

Steve and Bruce Lee were more than just martial arts friends; McQueen was actually Lee's student in Jeet Kune Do.
Duke Craig (9 months ago)
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.

He absolutely did not do áll of his own stunts. Mcqueen always did his best To destroy that myth. Bud eakins, mcqueens close friend, made the famous great escape jump.

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

Fact: Norman Jewison. original choice for the lead for The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) was Sean Connery who turned the role down. In later years he regretted that decision.

Steve Eifert (11 months ago)
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/
Peter Picallo (11 months ago)
He didn't do that famous jump on his bike in The Great Escape though :)
Connie Brown (10 months ago)
He would have done it if "they" would have let him. Insurance didn't allow it. If he had gotten hurt, the company would have lost a lot of money.

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.
Hart (10 months ago)
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.

# 12 needs to be expanded to say he also physically abused his ex-wife (almost killed her!) and was a horrific druggie. Why is this video making a legend out of a rotten person?
Tim Jansen (1 year ago)
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!
