Did You Know?
(on Steve McQueen
) Steve was my neighbor for some time, I called him "Crazy McQueen", because, quite frankly, he was crazy. We were friends, but he wanted to play my part in Grand Prix
(1966) and because of that we didn't talk for four years. He wasn't a great actor, but he was a star - McQueen had probably the highest amount of star quality I've ever seen in an actor.
After his stepmother, Wilma, had spanked him for things that he absolutely hadn't done, he responded to this punishment incident by striking her throat, before he was restrained by his family.
His voice was heard at the beginning of every episode of The Rockford Files
(1974) on the outgoing message for Jim Rockford's answering machine.
