Looks like a Savinelli.
Steve was an inveterate cigarette smoker, but I wouldn't doubt that he smoked a pipe too.
Yezzir... appears to be a pipe.
Just when you thought he couldnt get any cooler...
It's not a pipe. The film was so over-saturated with Steve's awesomeness that it was freakishly altered.
It had the same effect in The Getaway, occasionally making it appear as if Ali MacGraw could act.
He's so cool that I bet he could have puffed on Flying Dutchman or Borkum Riff like a freight train and never got tongue bite. So, what's your favorite Steve McQueen movie(s)? Mine is The Sand Pebbles, with Tom Horn, Papillon, and The Great Escape bringing up the rear.
The Great Escape (just ahead of The Magnificent Seven). I read an account a few years ago of a guy who was a teenager in L.A. in the 60's. One day he and his buddies were riding their motorbikes around Brentwood, being loud and obnoxious as you might expect. A Mercedes pulls up, and they're expecting to get chewed out by one of the local gentry. Instead it's McQueen, who asks if they can wait there a minute while he changes clothes and gets his bike. He spent the afternoon riding around with them.
I see your Sand Pebbles, Tom Horn, Pappillon & The Great Escape, And raise you The Getaway, Junior Bonner & Bullit...
....and Nevada Smith
As if he didn't need another reason to be even more bad ass.
My favorites are: the magnificent seven, Bullit, the getaway, Cincinnati kind, the great espcape, papillon.... well now i'm just listing off great movies of his, but hey! They're all great.
and for any motorcycle fans, On Any Sunday is a MUST watch.
If i got to ride a motorcycle with Steven McQueen, I could die the next day and still be happy.
Steve McQueen could be holding a dog turd, and he still would look cool.
Oh that's a good question! I'd have to say the Getaway. Steve was a Triumph fan too. I had a 1977 Bonneville when I was a kid. One of my best Summers.
On any Sunday.
And lets not forget his last movie, The Hunter... loved that old (54?) Chevy convertible he drove! And talking about cool....The Thomas Crown Affair! And one of the first ones he was in... The Blob, still a classic. There is a reason why they never shot a movie with him and John Wayne together, The cameras would explode! Just too much awesome in one spot!
Steve McQueen would make a Smart4two look cool
Bullit, The Mag. 7 and The Great Escape.
He's not holding a pipe in this scene, but appears to be wielding a shotgun.
Nice catch on that photo!
