Steve McQueen Robs a Bank in The Getaway


Today would have been the 86th birthday of Steve McQueen, the “King of Cool”. BAMF Style is paying tribute with this revised and expanded post breaking down McQueen’s style as Carter “Doc” McCoy in 1972’s The Getaway, the Sam Peckinpah-directed neo-noir crime classic which starred him and his future wife Ali MacGraw as a shrewd bank-robbing couple.

Happy birthday, Steve McQueen!

(I also just found this blog post that was also published today for McQueen’s 86th birthday about he and MacGraw working together while making The Getaway.)

    How utterly bizarre (strange coincidences have been plaguing me recently). I just happened to have happened on some documentary about Steve McQueen on my Bell Canada TV system this very evening. Strange, because I wasn’t a big fan of his (too wooden) but I had nonetheless decided to give it a look. This movie, of course, was covered.

    Are you following me? I’ll have to do a bug sweep tomorrow.

    3-piece suits. I used to wear them all the time. But I’m no longer in three pieces; I’m definitely only in one piece, and I should start trying to lose some of that.
