Steve McQueen (March 24, 1930November 7, 1980) was an Academy Award-nominated American movie actor, nicknamed "The King of Cool".[1] His "anti-hero" persona, which he developed at the height of the Vietnam counterculture, made him one of the top box-office draws of the 1960s and 1970s. McQueen was combative with directors and producers; regardless, he was able to command large salaries and was in high demand. Image File history File links Question_book-3. ...

Early life

He was born Terrence Steven McQueen [2] (although there is some doubt over the spelling of his first name, with various sources citing it as Terence or even Terrance) in Beech Grove, Indiana, a suburban community bordering Indianapolis in Marion County. His father, William, was a stunt pilot for a barnstorming flying circus, who abandoned Steve and his mother shortly before the birth. His mother, Julian, was an alcoholic; unable to cope with bringing up a small child she sent him at an early age to be raised by his Uncle Claude on the latter's farm in Slater, Missouri. His time on the farm was a happy one, and when at the age of 12 he was taken back by his mother to live with her and her new husband in Los Angeles, California he retained a special memory of his leavetaking: "The day I left the farm Uncle Claude gave me a personal going-away present; a gold pocket watch, with an inscription inside the case." The inscription read: "To Steve-- who has been a son to me".[3] Beech Grove Marion County, Indiana, United States. ...

Steve had a fractious relationship with his violent and abusive stepfather, whom he loathed. Within a couple of years he was running with a street gang, committing acts of petty crime. Unable to control his behaviour, his mother and stepfather sent him to the California Junior Boys Republic, optimistically described as "a home for wayward boys"[original research?] in Chino Hills, California.

In 1952, with financial assistance provided by the G.I. Bill, McQueen began studying acting and auditioned for a place at Lee Strasberg's Actors' Studio in New York.

Key appearances

Wanted: Dead or Alive
After uncredited film roles in Girl on the Run (1953) and Somebody Up There Likes Me (1956), and prominent parts in the 1958 films Never Love a Stranger and The Blob — interspersed with an assortment of live and filmed television guest appearances in the latter half of the Fifties — McQueen so successfully informed the character of the bounty hunter Josh Randall in a March, 1958, episode of the Western series Trackdown, that the part became McQueen's 'break-out' role in a series of his own, Wanted: Dead or Alive. The bounty hunter's holster held a sawed-off Winchester rifle nicknamed the "Mare's Leg," instead of the standard six-gun carried by the typical Western character. This added to the anti-hero image of a man infused with a mixture of mystery, alienation, and detachment that made this show stand out from the typical TV Western. Ninety four episodes, filmed at Apacheland Studio from 1958 till early 1961, kept McQueen steadily employed in television — until he withdrew from the series to focus his energy on the film career that began to sprout from the favorable attention this series had earned him. Girl on the Run (1958) is the first made-for-television movie and served as the pilot for the series 77 Sunset Strip. ...

Never So Few
At 29, Steve McQueen got his most significant break when Frank Sinatra removed Sammy Davis, Jr. from the film Never So Few, and Davis's role went to Steve McQueen. Sinatra saw something special in McQueen and ensured that the young actor got plenty of good shots and close-ups in a role that earned McQueen favorable reviews. McQueen's character, Bill Ringa, like future characters he would come to play, brought a new kind of cool to the screen and was never more comfortable than when driving at high speed — in this case, at the wheel of a jeep.

The Magnificent Seven
After Never So Few, director John Sturges cast McQueen in his next movie, promising to "give him the camera". The Magnificent Seven (1960), with Yul Brynner, Robert Vaughn, Charles Bronson, and James Coburn, became McQueen's first major hit, and led to his withdrawal from his own successful television series, Wanted, Dead or Alive.

The Great Escape
McQueen's next big film, 1963's The Great Escape, told the fictionalized "true story" of a mass escape from a World War II POW camp. A spectacular motorcycle leap in the film's climax highlighted McQueen's role in the film. While a very accomplished motorcyclist, insurance reasons did not allow McQueen to perform the actual jump. His friend and fellow cycle enthusiast Bud Ekins, who resembled McQueen from a distance, actually made the jump.

More information about this jump and the movie can be found by watching the special features documentary on The Great Escape DVD. McQueen always gave Ekins credit for performing the jump. In fact on his television show, when Johnny Carson had congratulated him for doing it, McQueen corrected him, "It wasn't me. That was Bud Ekins." In 1966 McQueen appeared as "Nevada Smith" in the movie of the same name.

Bullitt and later films
Another successful film was 1968's Bullitt, with an unprecedented (and endlessly imitated) auto chase through San Francisco, with Bud Ekins again doubling for some of the more hazardous work. Prior to that, McQueen earned his only Academy Award nomination for the 1966 film The Sand Pebbles. McQueen also appeared in 1973's Papillon, the 1971 car race drama Le Mans, and in The Getaway in 1972. He also played the leading role in Junior Bonner in 1972.

McQueen was the world's highest paid actor by the time of The Getaway. After The Towering Inferno, co-starring with his long time rival Paul Newman in 1974, McQueen did not return to film until 1978 with An Enemy of the People playing against type as a heavily bearded, bespectacled doctor, in this adaptation of the Henrik Ibsen play. The film was little seen. His last films were Tom Horn and The Hunter, both released in 1980.

The most memorable were the classic chase in Bullitt and the motorcycle chase scene in The Great Escape. The jump over the fence was actually done by Bud Ekins for insurance purposes. (However, McQueen did have a considerable amount of screen time while riding his motorcycle.

During his acting career, he considered becoming a professional race car driver. In the 1970 12 Hours of Sebring race, Peter Revson and McQueen (driving with a cast on his left foot from a motorcycle accident two weeks before) won in their (engine size) class and missed winning overall by a scant 23 seconds to Mario Andretti in a Ferrari with a Porsche 908/02. The same car was used as a camera car for Le Mans in the 24 Hours of Le Mans later that year, entered by his production company Solar Productions. However, the film was a box office flop that almost ruined McQueen's career. In addition, McQueen himself admitted that he almost died while filming the movie. Nonetheless, today, Le Mans is considered to be the most historically realistic, accurate, and dramatic representation of one of the most famous periods in the history of the race, as well as being considered one of the greatest auto racing movies of all time.

McQueen wanted to enter a Porsche 917 with Jackie Stewart in the 1970 Le Mans race, but his film backers threatened to pull their support if he drove.

He owned several exotic sportscars, including:

There were two cars used for filming.

Death

McQueen died at the age of fifty in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico from two heart attacks following surgery to remove or reduce a metastatic tumor in his stomach. He had been diagnosed with mesothelioma in December 1979, and had travelled to Mexico in July 1980 for unconventional treatment after his doctors advised him that they could do nothing more to prolong his life.[4] McQueen was cremated, and his ashes spread in the Pacific Ocean.[citation needed] Ciudad Juárez, or simply Juárez, is a city in the Mexican state of Chihuahua formerly known as El Paso del Norte. ...
