Shout! Factory Releases I AM STEVE MCQUEEN, Celebrating The Life & Work Of A Legend

I-Am-Steve-McQueenSteve McQueen was certainly “the man” when it comes to the start of action heroes, and his run in the 1960s and 1970s.  Bullitt, The Getaway, The Thomas Crown Affair, The Great Escape and many others are downright staples of anyone studying action in film.  And McQueen was easily a star.  Here we have a documentary celebrating that legendary career and also giving us the story who he was as a man too.  This documentary features the likes of Robert Downey Jr, Pierce Brosnan, Gary Oldman and many others talking about his importance to film and the legacy.  Shout!
