Summary "Hollywood's sexiest leading man, Steve McQueen--star of films such as Bullitt, The Great Escape, The Thomas Crown Affair, and Papillon--lived as large off screen as on. An actor, motorcycle and automobile racer, and all-around gearhead, McQueen rose from hardscrabble circumstances to become one of the most famous movie stars in the world.
