The Tonight Show
Steve first appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1964, shortly after the release of The Great Escape. During this appearance
Carson congratulated him on doing the famous motorbike jump in the movie, and although it must have been
embarrasing to admit in front of an adoring nationwide audience, Steve corrected him, saying, "It wasn't me. That
was Bud Ekins". The Movie Studio wasn't very happy that he admitted this, but Steve had too much integrity
to take the credit for another man's bravery and skill.|
Again in 1966 Steve made a pit stop on The Tonight Show to promote his then current film, The Sand Pebbles.
