|Neile McQueen's memories of the day...|
On March 21, 1967, three days before his
thirty-seventh birthday, Steve McQueen became the one-hundred-fifty-third star to put his handprints and footprints
on the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese Theater. Over two thousand fans were there and God knows how many
photographers. In true Hollywood fashion, we arrived in Steve's burgundy Ferrari as the crowd cheered. Amid
the pandemonium we learned that Steve had set an attendance record, equaling that of Marilyn Monroe and
Jane Russell, who had together immortalized their footprints in cement.
