Legacy of Steve McQueen

Terrence Steven “Steve” McQueen was an American movie actor. He was nicknamed “The King of Cool”, which is a pretty cool nickname in itself! Steve McQueen was known for arguing with both directors and producers, but the audience loved him so much, that the studios simply had to work with him. In 1974, Steve became the highest-paid movie star in the world.

Steve loved to race cars and bikes, and actually made a living competing in races while studying to become an actor.

He is recognized for performing many of his own stunts, especially the majority of the stunt driving during the high-speed chase scene in Bullit, which is considered one of the best car chases ever made. See the famous car chase below. If you get impatient, just jump to 3:20…
