Terrence Steven “Steve” McQueen was born on March 24, 1930 in Beech Grove, Indiana (Marion County). Steve was an American movie actor nicknamed “The King of Cool”.

McQueen is known as the highest paid movie star of the sixties and seventies. He is also known as one of the best actors in film history and his films are considered classics. Even though he participated in 26 movies, some of his greatest films are The Great Escape, The Sand Pebbles (Academy award nomination), Bullitt (exciting car chase), The Getaway, Papillion or Le Mans.

He was an enthusiastic racer of both motorcycles and cars. While he studied acting, he supported himself partly by competing in weekend motorcycle races and bought his first motorcycle with his winnings. He is recognized for performing many of his own aerial tricks, especially the mainstream of the stunt driving during the high-speed chase scene in Bullitt. In addition, McQueen also designed and patented a bucket seat for race cars.

He found out he had lung cancer, and with only two months to live he and his wife went to Mexico for treatment. At the Mexican clinic, he underwent an agonizing three-month regimen of animal cell injections and was taking over 100 vitamins a day. Still, his body continued to weaken. He had surgery to remove an abdominal tumor and soon after that it was all over for the celebrated actor.
