Steve McQueen: The Man and Le Mans on Blu-ray, DVD and digital
The drive to succeed
STEVE MCQUEEN: THE MAN AND LE MANS, will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital on 5th June 2017.
Holllywood legend Steve McQueen made his name in The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape and The Thomas Crown Affair. But it was his role as the maverick cop in Bullitt - the film that made car chases a staple of the movie industry - that transformed McQueen into Hollywood’s golden boy by the end of the 1960s. Now he was rich enough and powerful enough to make Le Mans - the movie that had been his passion for decades.
If acting was his calling, McQueen's first love was racing. But to him it was more than just a hobby. It was an art form. Speed offered an escape. Racing became an addiction that led to his obsession to make "the ultimate racing picture".
