Steve McQueen. The Actor And His Films

It is extremely rare that critics are unanimous in describing a book as absolutely magnificent. And because most of you love Steve McQueen as much as a person than as a film character, riding or not a motorcycle, I had to talk about it.

Steve McQueen, The Actor And His Films, tracks his personal journey from juvenile delinquent, to Marine, to an aspiring actor breaking into Hollywood, until he became a global superstar and the highest-paid actor of his era. Each of his movie and TV production is accounted and illustrated with over 1000 color and b&w pictures, some never published before.

A gorgeous and huge (almost 500 pages) book. $43. Steve McQueen. The Actor And His Films.

    And as you can tell from the photo he died from cancer caused by smoking !
    When will you decide to Quit as you celebrate his other accomplishments?

    It is common knowlege (by anyone old enough to be around when he died), McQueen died from mesthelimoa as caused by exposure to asbestos, not smoking.
    And more specifically, he died from surgery to remove tumors in the abdomen caused by mesothelioma.
    If you want to start a crusade against smoking, you ignorantly picked the wrong guy.

    Dirt bike riders were like cockroaches.
    When we’d pull up to a “scrambles spot” and unload the bikes, people gassed-up and split in different directions. Nobody stayed back to put tools or gas cans back in the truck. Nobody wore helmets. Everybody rode over their heads.
    McQueen, Wynn, Marvin and Munoz were just as bad. Alot of X-riders out here were surfer’s. The balance thing was the same and became a crossover sport. Every man for himself. Kick your friend into a jojoba bush, if you’re both vying for the same rut-track. 🙂 Fun times in the late 60’s.
    Everybody made a 250cc moto-cross: Bultaco, Greeves, Husky, and several more from Spain.
    Get a yearly prostate check-up, if you want to stick around on earth for awhile and party.

    I know everyone has been worried sick over why my repop ’57 Pan isn’t running.

    It twas’ the points. They insisted on closing down from the set 0.022″ to 0.018″, which is .001″ to narrow to fire the cylinders.

    Why you asked? Can’t say (other than the eccentric screw can’t be made into a tight peen and a firm eccentric screw setting supports the open points gap). Demonic for certain.

    So, I used a snap-punch to multi-divot the points base for traction, and installed a thicker, larger diameter washer under the set screw, to exert more downward pressure on the base.

    This should teach the points a lesson they’ll never forget!

    OK Dave Blevins Your right ….I stand corrected…but the smoking could not have helped.
