Happy Birthday To Steve McQueen, A Former U.S. Marine, A Fine Actor And One Very Cool Guy
Happy birthday to Steve McQueen.
A former U.S. Marine, a fine actor and one very cool guy, Steve McQueen appeared in several of my favorite films, including Bullitt, The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape, The Sand Pebbles and Tom Horn.
Comcast Cable is offering The Magnificent Seven on Demand and I plan to watch this great film again later today in honor of Steve McQueen's birthday.
