In reply to: Actor 's message, "Archive: Steve McQueen, Nov. 7, 1980" on Saturday, November 07, 11:05:44am

McQueen was itching to take his career to the big screen. When offered The Magnificent Seven, the actor could not get out of his commitment to Wanted.

Unwillingly to pass up the role, not to mention being discontent with his TV gig, McQueen took a rented Cadillac and ran it into the Bank of Boston, according to Marc Eliot's biography Steve McQueen. He showed up with a neck brace (undoubtedly making it look cool) and forced a delay in production of the series, which allowed him to go shoot the film.
