Product Overview

Steve McQueen is one of Americas legendary movie stars, also known for his turbulent life off-screen and his impeccable style. His physical beauty, his soft-spoken manner, his tough but tender roughness, and his aching vulnerability had women swooning and men wanting to be just like him. Today--nearly thirty years after he lost his battle against cancer at the age of fifty--McQueen remains The King of Cool. Yet few know the truth of what bubbled beneath his composed exterior. Now, film historian Marc Eliot chronicles McQueens tumultuous life, from his hardscrabble childhood to his rise to Hollywood superstar, to his struggles with alcohol and drugs and his fervor for racing fast cars and motorcycles, disclosing intimate details of his three marriagesas well as his numerous affairs. Perhaps his greatest talent was to be able to convince audiences that he was who he really wasnt, even as he tried to prove to himself that he wasnt who he really was.--From publisher description. *Author: Eliot, Marc *Subtitle: A Biography *Publication Date: 2011/10/25 *Number of Pages: 354 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Language: English *Depth: 1.50 *Width: 6.50 *Height: 9.75
