WHAT MCQUEEN FILMS HAVE YOU SEEN ON THE BIG SCREEN?

Discuss the films of Steve McQueen.

Never seen Steve on the big screen. Wish I did! I do watch him on my
62 inch T.V. but I still don't think that is the same.
Here is something I have in my collection. I guess this is what was
sent to the movie theaters that were starting to show Bullitt
back in 1969? I have the poster too. Just thought you guys like to see this.

Karen,

that poster, as 24 sheet poster, those things are 246" x 108" in size.

Have you ever opened it up? Can you tell us more about it?

Thanks,

Darren.

Sorry to dissappoint you but I can't find the Bullitt poster. My collection
is rather large, very unorganized :oops: and I looked through it
but did not find it.
The only TRUE ORIGINAL posters that I have are
Soldier in the Rain 1/2 sheet Style B
The Getaway US 1 sheet
Tom Horn US 1 sheet

Others posters that I have are not original and not worth mentioning.
I do have a LeMans it is coyright 1971 but I don't think it is original.?

This is neat-- it is a large print with pencil writing on the back 49/33. Of course it is Robert Vaughn on the set of Bullitt ,
but is that Steve?? anybody think so?

Until more recent times, when most drive-ins began using FM frequencies to transmit the sound for the film to the general vicinity of the theater.

Nope, that ain't Steve. But it's a great shot of Robert Vaughn!

I viewed almost the complete films of Steve McQueen on screen .
"An Enemy of the People","The Great St Louis Bank Robbery" "The Blob" and "Never Love A Stranger" are the only titles I viewed only on video.
In France, the really first released movie was "Somebody up there likes me" (but Steve was uncredited);so you can consider that the first McQueen's movie released was "Never So Few" in 1960 and the second "The Magnificent Seven"in 1961
But these two titles were not originally released by the studios with focus on the name of Steve McQueen.
After the release of "the Great Escape" ,all his movies ,made before it, were released or re-released in theaters during the period 1963-1964 with "Wanted Dead Or Alive (season 1) aired on TV.
("Hell is for heroes","The War Lover","The Honeymoon Machine","The Great St Louis Bank Robbery" but not "The Blob" remaining unreleased until 1976).
Then, since "Soldier in the Rain" (1964) to "The Hunter" (coming on screen 3 months after Steve's death in early 1981) all movies were released respectfull with chronological order.
The problem was that it was impossible to hear the real Steve McQueen's voice,for people not living in Paris, because all theaters played versions dubbed in French.
As I went to Paris in 1969, I could view original english talking version, in theaters , of the last McQueen's movies of the seventies (from "The Reivers" to "The Hunter").

Just 'Bullitt' and 'the Getaway' for me. Bullitt twice, the big screen adds so much more - the SF locations really come into their own on such a medium. Secon time I saw it, it was a double-bill with the Getaway, which went on second. I've always loved it, but straight after Bullitt, it paled by comparison. It would have been much more effective to screen it first.

Hilts, not that it matters much but Steve wore Sanders Playboy chukka's in Bullitt (they are English made and still available). If you care to, use your stop action button on your remote control when Bullitt shoots the thug in the airport and kicks the gun away. He was wearing the same (or similar shoes) when we met after filming Bullitt. Sanders are available at http://theshoebuff.com/boots/sanders-su ... kka-snuff/ Cheers! John :cheers:
