. Steve McQueen: The Actor and his Films, is the definitive account of every film that the iconic actor made. This lavishly illustrated book devotes nearly 500 pages to Steve McQueen’s career and tracks his 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. Included are numerous behind the scenes tales of events that occurred leading up to and during filming, and fascinating insights into McQueen’s acting techniques and motivations.

Steve McQueen: The Actor and his Films is extensively illustrated with over 1000 color and black & white images, including posters from around the world, lobby cards, memorabilia, many never-before seen candid stills and rare vintage advertising materials.

5 of 5 Couldn't stop reading January 21, 2018
Reviewer: Richard from Auburn, GA United States  
This is such a great book. Not only does it have a wealth of pictures and posters/lobby cards (foreign and domestic)  but the chronology of his career is well done. I though that there wouldn't be much that I hadn't know about him but pleasantly surprised with the volume of detail that was in it. As always, Dalton Watson books got it right out and their customer service is outstanding.
