Steve McQueen- A Life In Pictures; First Edition- Includes 4 glossy promotion colour photographs.
Steve McQueen lived the American dream. He went from reform school to cinema stardom, from doing odd jobs to being the best paid actor in Hollywood, from local motor-races to the 24-hour Le Mans road race.
Trained in the Actors Studio, McQueen quickly gained success and recognition thanks to his role in the television series Wanted: Dead or Alive. He was barely 30 when he made The Magnificent Seven and became a screen legend, playing iconic roles in films that are now cult movies, The Great Escape, Bullitt, The Thomas Crown Affair, The Towering Inferno, to name a few.
"The King of Cool is as popular today as in the 1950s and 1960s, when he became famous in films such as Bullitt, The Great Escape, The Magnificent Seven, The Thomas Crown Affair, and later The Towering Inferno. McQueen began his career in television and moved into film in the mid-1950s when he became a true cinema icon, and classic images of him are widely reproduced today. In many of his films his real-life passion for fast cars and motorcycle racing was evident, and he was always excited to do his own stunts. This beautiful collection shows the different sides of his professional and personal life, with many images not seen before, and will be a delight to his multitude of fans."
