The Trailer For The Upcoming Steve McQueen Documentary Is Out And It Looks AWESOME

James Dean. James Garner. Paul Newman. Steve McQueen. Patrick Dempsey. What’s the common thread? They were all actors yes, but they were also fond of motor racing. Garner was in the Epic movie Grand Prix and raced in the Baja 1000. Newman raced GT cars all over the globe; as was excellently shown in a documentary released earlier this summer called “Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman.” This brings me neatly to McQueen. The best movie he ever did was “Le Mans.” Another documentary is coming out soon that goes behind the scenes of the movie which is considered by many to be the greatest racing movie of all time. Below is the trailer. Enjoy.

STEVE MCQUEEN: THE MAN & LE MANS is the story of obsession, betrayal and ultimate vindication. It is the story of how one of the most volatile, charismatic stars of his generation, who seemingly lost so much he held dear in the pursuit of his dream, nevertheless followed it to the end.
