Magnificent Seven...










In the 1986  book 'My Husband, My Friend'  Neile states that they lived at 1, Chester  Square during the filming of THE WAR LOVER (page 112).

I have recently  purchased and read Marshall Terrill's book, 'Steve McQueen - A Tribute to  the King of Cool and on page 90 there is a copy of a letter Steve wrote to Hedda re: missing 'California very  much' with the address at the top of the page reading : 80, Chester Square,  London S.W.1 (5th December 1961).








(On the set of the WAR LOVER)






Cool: you can't touch it, smell it, taste it or even define it. But we can all recognise it, and for most of us it has another name: Steve McQueen. Hollywood megastar, racing driver, pilot and motorbike fanatic, McQueen was the epitome of a man's man, yet women the world over would go weak at just a glimpse of his trademark cropped blond hair and blue eyes. To mark his death, 30 years ago this month at just 50, his widow Barbara, a former model, and biographer Marshall Terrill have produced A Tribute To The King Of Cool (Dalton Watson). It is laced with hundreds of pictures. Taking us from his delinquent farm-boy days to his film classics such as Bullitt, The Thomas Crown Affair and The Great Escape, this book is the real deal.
