You run the job, but The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day runs the show.
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Today I have a twofer for you. I have one real deal Behind the Scenes shot from The Getaway featuring Steve McQueen and director Sam Peckinpah going over the script and then one shot of McQueen by himself that is, frankly, epic. It’s a shot that proves that nobody, but nobody could fuck with Steve McQueen.
The Getaway itself is a fun flick, but not my favorite from either star or director. Having said that, Ali MacGraw is hotter than the sun in it (I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that could have been one of the contributing factors to her running off with McQueen and abandoning her marriage to producer Bob Evans during the shoot) and the script by Walter Hill is prime ‘70s badassness.
So, enjoy the average BTS shot and the McQueen hero pose below.
Thanks once again to Jordan Krug for these shots. Click to embiggen!
If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic has a funny lookin’ face!

I'm probably the only person who would pick Ride the High Country as my favorite of his films.

If any of you haven't seen The Kid Stays in the Picture, it's a really good documentary about Evans. Interesting shit. I would have to say Straw Dogs is my favorite Peckinpah.

McQueen was such a badass and that picture sure as hell shows it. I would have to pick either Ride the High Country or The Wild Bunch as my favorite Peckinpah film. High Country because of Randolph Scott and his chemistry with Joel McCrea. Wild Bunch because of the blood ballets and Holden versus Robert Ryan. Angie Harmon is infinitely hotter and sexier than Ali MacGraw at any time. The Kid Stays in the Picture was a pretty damn good documentary.

Don't see it myself. Funny though that both their last names have two capitalized letters in them.

Right after this pic was taken he probably went and had a manicure in his trailer. The guys putting their lives on the line in Afghanistan and Iraq... they're tough guys.

Did you stumble upon this website by accident or do you need it explained to you in simple, easy to understand words?
July 31, 2011, 7:56 a.m. CST
Hey idiot. He's an actor on set in that picture. His 'character' is tough. it's fake. A movie. Reality check !!!!!

How he drove Brenner batshit crazy on Mag 7 is the best. But they pulled off a classic.

HA-HA-HA-HA! It's always fun seeing 12-year-olds like corplhicks and larkstew badmouthing a legend like Steve McQueen.
Go read up on the man before you make fools out of yourselves in public. Again. Steve McQueen was as badass IRL as he was on screen. Maybe more. Or do you not know how to read, you ignorant fucks?

Because I hate almost all remakes - especially of my favorite films from the 70's when I grew up - and I saw the original when I was a kid - but...okay, don't kill me...but I like the remake better than the original in this case. I always found Peckinpah to be pretty overrated (with the exception of THE WILD BUNCH) and the remake is just slick and sexy and smooth and you see about every inch of Kim Bassinger's perfect fucking body. I don't know I just think it works a little better, weird I know. That second photo is ubercool though and McQeen did have a badass quality that you never see in actors today. And don't even bring Daniel Craig - scowling doesn't make you badass, it's either something you have or you don't have. Recommendation: See McQueen in LE MANS. Great gritty race flick.

It's a perfect candidate for a quintessential college dorm room poster cliché.
July 31, 2011, 10:24 p.m. CST
I said you can't anything about an actor in real life based on a photograph of them on set. Duh. When you're done jacking over steve McQueen clean up and you'll see I'm right. Lol

If I was pushed, my favourite movie of his was Cross of Iron (possibly one of the best war movies ever?), but this is easily a second!! I love the Getaway - somehow, despite the setup, the sudden tail-off meek ending and the quite aged feel to it all, and the (art house) violence, I think most people miss the point - its about a relationship between two people, that despite the odds, never runs out. And yes. Ali McGraw is smoking fucking hot, but I think that was the point!!

Man, you must be really conflicted now, Larkstew.

It was in San Francisco during the filming of Bullit. My uncle was at his favorite bar to play pool when this guy walks in with dark sunglasses. He heads over to the pool tables and after looking around for a bit asks my uncle for a game. My uncle knew who he was but was cool, and just said, Sure, and they played a few games. When they were done, McQueen shook his hand and thanked him for the games and for not making a big deal about who he was.
