TERRENCE STEVEN "STEVE" McQUEEN

Terrence Steven "Steve" McQueen was born in Beech Grove, Indiana (a suburb of Indianapolis) on March 24, 1930.

McQueen got his start with the TV series “Wanted: Dead or Alive,” in the late 1950s. From there, Steve McQueen became famous for his movie roles in such great movies such as The Magnificent Seven; The Great Escape; Nevada Smith; Papillon; Junior Bonner and The Sand Pebbles.

“Bullitt” (1968) put Steve McQueen over the top. This movie has what is rated as the best car chase in film history. McQueen did most of his own driving in this timeless chase as he was also a very successful auto racer; something he showed the world in his movie, “Le Mans,” which was released in 1971. Also in 1968, “The Thomas Crown Affair” became another McQueen hit.

“The Getaway,” (1972) directed by Sam Peckinpah, (whose great-grandfather was a merchant and a farmer in Indiana in the 1850s) is a favorite for many McQueen fans. It was during the filming of this movie that McQueen met his next wife, Ali MacGraw. Many people believe this movie reflected the true intensity and attitude of the real McQueen.

Steve McQueen (remarried to Barbara Minty) passed away at the age of 50 on November 7, 1980, in Juarez, Mexico, after undergoing surgery for pleural mesothelioma.
