Morning Man Classic: Steve McQueen!
Steve McQueen, the ruggedly handsome and very sexy star of The Great Escape, The Magnificent Seven, Papillon, The Sand Pebbles, Bullitt, The Getaway, The Thomas Crown Affair and many other films, died far too young.
McQueen was born 87 years ago today. Sadly, he was just 50 when he died in 1980 after developing several large abdominal tumors.
Thank God for the Turner Classic Movies Film Festival which is where in recent years I’ve seen so many McQueen films on the big screen which is how they should be seen to be fully enjoyed and appreciated. This is an actor who really was one of a kind.
