Steve McQueen, well-known by the nickname "The King of Cool", was an outstanding American actor born on the 24th of March, 1930. He was famous for his anti-hero roles and was also very restive in life: McQueen was always straight and combative with his directors and producers, which, anyway, didn't prevent him from becoming the highest-paid movie star in the world in 1974.

McQueen is best known for his work in The Cincinnati Kid, The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt, The Getaway, and Papillon.

Steve died on the 7th of November, 1980 and was only 50 years old. Nevertheless, he managed to become a true icon of his epoch. The influence of the King of Cool still remains strong.
