Abstract:

During his lifetime Steve McQueen embodied "the rebel image." Rough around the edges, driven with a passion and a confidence not found in ordinary men, he was at once a loner and a leader, in all cases fiercely independent. When McQueen arrived in Hollywood even the biggest names - such as Roman Polanski, Jack Warner and Francis Ford Coppola - had to learn fast that McQueen's hard edge was no mere act, and before long the troubled street kid from Indianapolis, Indiana.

Was among the highest-paid movie stars in the world. In this as in so many things McQueen was a living paradox. The man some called "crazy," the man who raced motorcycles and lived every day of his life as if it were his last, was also deeply respected by his fellow artists. Edward G. Robinson, Paul Newman, Dustin Hoffman and Ann-Margret, among others, ranked him among the best actors in film history. Steve McQueen was an originale and a natural. Marshall Terrill's Steve.

McQueen chronicles the life and times of this man whose power both on- and off-camera is legendary. From the list of his women friends, to the "love of his life," actress Ali MacGraw, McQueen seemed to have it all. Steve McQueen: Portrait of An American Rebel relates vivid, first-hand accounts of McQueen's extraordinary career and even more extraordinary life, leaving readers with the impression that they have met him, shared some of his grief, his joy and learned about.

The small-town rebel who kept so many millions spellbound.
