"BULLITT MOVIE TRAILER (1968)"-The plot gets thick, but this is still one of the best cop movies ever. Steve McQueen is still the coolest badass that ever lived. Period. Produced by Philip D'Antoni, who would bring us The French Connection and The Seven-Ups.












This is probaby the most famous chase scene in movie history. side note, he did most of his own stunt driving in the scene.

Steve McQueen has been described as an angry young man, Mr. Cool, a bit mysterious, and sometimes having a mean streak. But all of his fans know there was only one Steve McQueen. Born on March 24, 1930 in Beech Grove, Indiana. This small town boy with poor education never knew his father.
McQueen's father left when he was only six months old. Later, while still a young boy, his mother left him so he had to move in with his uncle on a farm in Missouri. He lived here until he was twelve years old when he left Missouri to move in with his mother in Los Angeles.
Here he started hanging out with gangs and got into some trouble. His mother sent him to the Boys Republic, a home for boys in California. McQueen tried to run away but was caught. Later he gave credit to the Boys Republic for getting his life in order.
He didn't forget how the school had helped him and after becoming a famous movie star he still visited the school often. In 1962 he set up a four-year scholarship for the best student. In his will he left $200,000 to the school. A building was dedicated in his honor and named the Steve McQueen Recreation Center.
After leaving the Boys Republic, McQueen joined the Marines. When he got out he went to New York and worked on a ship. Later he moved on to Texas and worked in oil fields. Having tumbleweed fever he moved on again to Canada and worked as a lumberjack. He went back to New York and worked at odd jobs and took up with an actress who encouraged him to go for an acting career.
He got accepted in the New York acting school. He attended school in the day and worked at night driving a truck. Later he landed a scholarship at Herbert-Bergoff Drama School. Soon he was on Broadway and it was here he met Neile Adams. They fell in love, got married and moved to California. They had two children together, Chad and Terry.
In California, he got parts in low budget films and soon landed the main character in a TV series called, Wanted: Dead or Alive. From there he was on his way to stardom. He was known to hang out at the Whiskey a-go-go and fashioned himself in a lifestyle of drugs and women.
McQueen is known as the highest paid movie star of the sixties and seventies. He is also known as one of the best actors in film history and his films are considered classics. Some of his greatest films are The Great Escape, The Sand Pebbles (Academy award nomination), Bullitt (exciting car chase), The Getaway, Papillon, and many others.
During the making of the film, Lemans, McQueen was under a great deal of stress afraid it wouldn't be a success. This film was important to him because he loved car racing. It didn't go over the way he had planned. The film went over budget and was taken away from McQueen. He was crushed.
While filming The Getaway he fell in love with his co-star, Ali MacGraw. McQueen and his wife of 15 years split and he and MacGraw married. He began making commercials for Honda. Now, he dabbled deeper into the world of drugs, friends say often doing cocaine.
His hair grew long, his beard unkempt and he looked more like a wildman than Steve McQueen. Some say he was known to have women in his trailer while making films, and that he was traveling on a dark path. Soon he and Ali were divorced.
Later on he mellowed out and decided to become a pilot like his father. He met a model named Barbara Minty and they married. Then, he found out he had lung cancer, and with only two months to live he and his wife went to Mexico for treatment.
Here at a Mexican clinic, he underwent an agonizing three-month regimen of animal cell injections, and was taking over 100 vitamins a day. Still, his body continued to weaken. He had surgery to remove an abdominal tumor and soon after that is was all over for the celebrated actor who had been known as "Mr.Cool."
McQueen died on November 7, 1980 at age 50. An open Bible lay across his chest and Steve McQueen lay in death with a smile on his face. His daughter, Terry McQueen died March 19, 1998 at age 38 after complications from a liver transplant. As time goes by, Steve McQueen gathers more fans in death than he did in life.

Sorry
I haven't been on here in a while. As you know my husband Ken was
fighting cancer, well he lost his battle about 8 weeks ago. I have had a
lot of stuff on my plate to take care of and deal with. when Ken was
living my time was taken up for the 7 months of his battle with caring
for him. I have been dealing with my grief and home and things of that
nature since his passing. I was blessed to have shared 30 wonderful
years with my husband. Now I'm trying to learn to live the new life that
has been handed to me. I shared everything with Ken he was my best
friend as well as my partner in this life. I still can't believe he's
gone, my heart hurts beyond words. Just wanted to stop on your page real
quick and let you now what has been up with me. Not sure how often I'll
be on here, but I want wish you a wonderful new week ahead. Take care
my friend. Much love to you from me.
