One of the top box-office draws of the 1960s and '70s with now-classics such as The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape, The Thomas Crown Affair, and Bullit, Steve McQueen is renowned as one of the most exciting actors ever to come out of Hollywood. Now, in Steve McQueen: A Biography, bestselling author Marc Eliot gives unique insight into McQueen's life, from his films to his three marriages, many affairs, and struggles with addictions. This definitive biography, filled with original research and new interviews, will dazzle fans with its eye-opening portrayal of one of America's most memorable stars.

    The book focused alot on his hollywood life, and the countless women SteveM slept with (particularly while he was married to his wife Neal sp?). I was more interested in his character - and in particular his fixation with racing-cars and motorcycles etc. While Eliot covered this in the book, I cringed everytime he incorrectly pronounced lemans (lay-mohn) as lay-maans. Further, I think the film did a bit better than Eliot characterized it as (IIRC - Speed when they showed it indicated it had pulled in about $40 million US all-in to that date). Further, there was not much detail about his family life, I guess that only came up when he was married to Ali McGraw. In the end, I found I did not much like the character Eliot portrayed. It seemed very ego-centric. Perhaps SteveM was not a likable guy all in - I just felt their was always more depth to him (his acting may have fooled me)!
