I can’t say enough about this Hollywood icon Steve McQueen as l have loved every movie and tv series he has been in. It’s about time someone has taken the time to talk and discuss the life and films of The King of Cool. I can’t wait for the next pod cast. Kudos to you and the effort behind the interviews and research in bringing it alive so others can re-live what went on in the life and films of this terrific actor. He died at such a young age. Then turning his life to God and enjoying the simple things in life with friends and family. Kudos to you sir. Just so fantastic to hear and to listen to. Thank you.
