Steve McQueen for sale

The late actor (and one-time Malibu resident) Steve McQueen gets the memoir treatment from his third wife, Barbara, who was married to McQueen for all of ten months.Steve Mcqueen His beach house, she recalls, was located next door to Who drummer Keith Moon.

“Steve found him passed out on the beach dressed in a Nazi uniform, complete with jodhpurs, cap, leather coat and a swastika armband. Steve pulled him back to safety and deposited him on his doorstep for someone else to clean up.”
The book, "Steve McQueen: The Last Mile", will be released in November. Barbara's also holding an auction to clear her Montana home of much of the "clutter" McQueen left behind after his death from cancer in 1980. Included are saddles, morotcycles, a pickup with a license plate that reads MCQ3188. (The numbers were part of his juvie hall ID tag.) Also on the block are a pair of blue Persol sunglasses McQueen wore while filming The Thomas Crown Affair.

If you'd rather remember the man by his body of work, try his IMDB bio.

Great quote: "Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting."
