A fatherless reform school kid, Steve McQueen joined the Marines, but was never far from trouble - until he found acting and the woman who would always love him. He was one of Hollywood's highest paid stars, and one of its most difficult. His rise to icon and the inevitable descent are told by those who watched it happen. Clips include: The Magnificent Seven, Love With the Proper Stranger, The Cincinnati Kid, The Reivers, The Great Escape, The Thomas Crown Affair and Bullitt. His life story is told with home movies and the recollections of his first wife, Neile McQueen Toffel; children Terri and Chad; actors Chuck Norris, Karl Malden and Don Gordon; and the directors, producers, agents and racing buddies who knew and understood him. Narrated by James Coburn.
