interesting and sad
1 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This wonderful documentary gives some great insight into the life, career, and film technique of Steve McQueen. It left me feeling very sad as I heard the different people in the program discussing him, particularly his first wife, Neilie Adams, and his third wife, Barbara Minty. Despite being a tough guy on the screen, McQueen was a generous man, a loyal friend, a good father, and, despite their problems, his ex-wife seems genuinely fond of him. I think my favorite story was the one Suzanne Pleshette told, of him ordering two steaks in a restaurant in case he wanted another one. She said, "Why don't you just eat one and order another one if you want one?" He answered, "What if there isn't another one?" The film clips show his evolution as an actor and star but also his ups and downs as a human being. He fought very hard to live. It's really a shame he didn't.
