Steve McQueen is one of my favorites....my dad actually encountered him about three or four times during a weekend in the late 1950s.....he was covering a parade(my dad was a newspaper writer)...and McQueen was the grand marshall of the parade. McQueen thought my dad and his buddy were valets and tossed them the keys to his car from them to park the car.....later they(my dad and his friend) called McQueen's hotel room at 2AM to see if he wanted to come down to the hotel bar for a drink.....the next morning they told McQueen they were sorry for waking him up. And then later they talked with him before the parade. Sorry I went off subject.

Love the posters...very surprising that Yul Brynner did not even make the poster of The Magnificent Seven poster. The Great Escape and Bullit posters are classic..just like the movies. It is a shame that he died so early.....more trivia.....are you aware that his last words were...."I made it"...said in Spanish....as he briefly awoke from surgery and then went back to sleep and never woke up again..

Voted up and very interesting as well.

Thanks Bruce, appreciate the comment, anecdote, observation, trivia and vote amigo.

A great anecdote there your dad chatting with McQueen, cheers.

I didn't know those were his last words, so sad, he was only 50.

What's wrong with that Japanese The Magnificent Seven poster? Any guesses? See answer below.

I saw just two McQueen films at the cinema, Bullitt, reissued in the 70's on a double bill with another film. And The Towering Inferno.

The Great Escape is my most watched of his films.

Answer: Charles Bronson didn't have a moustache in the film.

Interesting that they added a moustache to Bronson....but where did they hide Yul? I guess they sided with McQueen in the McQueen/Brynner feud they had going on while filming.

It's most probably a re-release poster, unless I'm wrong it wasn't until the early 70's that Charlie had a moustache in every film (except Valachi Papers) he didn't have one in Battle of the Bulge, Dirty Dozen or Once Upon a Time in the West.

Yul Brynner is on the poster but they shrunk him to the size of McQueens hand there in the center. Another indication that this is a re-issue poster, when the film came out Yul Brynner was by far the biggest star on there, a few years later and McQueen, Bronson and Coburn were more popular.

Looking at the Nevada Smith poster, I wonder if that name was an inspiration for Indiana Jones?

I loved Steve McQueen! My favorite was always The Great Escape. But I loved him in Tom Horn, too. Good hub and voted up.

Not sure how I was missing Yul....I would wager that has to be the smallest amount of space given to the star of a movie compared to the space given to everybody else in the movie.

Yep even Brad Dexter looms larger than Yul, but what about the main villain, Eli Wallach? Is that him on the horse? Why he's even smaller than Yul. :)
