Overall, it is a great package and will make you want to eventually buy the rest of the box sets.

Between this release and "The Steve McQueen Collection", McQueen fans will have most of his essential films.

You could call him the quiet one. McQueen had a talent for portraying quite a lot with minimal dialog and that's the way he liked it. He has maybe 75 lines off dialog in "The Magnificent Seven" yet his presence is equal to that of star Yul Brynner. You'd be forgiven for being confused about which Steve McQueen boxed set to purchase. MGM has recently released "The Steve McQueen Collection" which features four McQueen classics that have previously been available on DVD; "The Thomas Crown Affair", "The Magnificent Seven", "Junior Bonner" and "The Great Escape".

"The Essential Steve McQueen Collection" is a different beast entirely; it does feature 1 title that is no different than the previously issued version -"Papillon". All the rest have either never been issued or, in the case of "Bullitt", are now in two disc deluxe editions that make this set a worthwhile addition to any collection.

The crown jewel of this set is the new deluxe edition of "Bullitt". McQueen plays San Francisco detective Frank Bullitt. He's been assigned to protect a witness for a major trial. The witness, though, is murdered. Before the post-mortem has begun, Bullitt hunts for the killers and plans on nailing them. Featuring an amazing high speed chase through the streets of San Francisco and shot entirely on location, "Bullitt" was Peter Yates' first major US film and it crackles with energy.

"Papillon" tells the story of a thief nick-named Papillon for the large butterfly tattooed on his chest. (McQueen) framed for murder in France and sent to Devil's Island for life. From the moment he steps on the boat headed to the prison he's planning his escape. He agrees to protect a financial thief Louis Dega (Dustin Hoffman).

Warner Bros. obviously put a lot of work into this new Steve McQueen boxed set. I bought it today, and I'm astounded. I always loved McQueen, but I never knew "who he was". You can finally find that out by watching a great new documentary called

STEVE McQUEEN:THE ESSENCE OF COOL, which is one of two superb documentaries on the remastered BULLITT 2 Disc Special Edition in this box (more on the other later...)

You also get McQueen and Dustin Hoffman in the magnificent PAPILLION, McQueen and Ali MacGraw in the controversial and enticing THE GETAWAY, which features commentaries from a slew of

devotees to its director Sam Peckinpah that goes beyond the reverential and the astute. It's almost frighteningly obsessive in how much these folks live, breath, and eat Sam Peckinpah. In real life Peckinpah was not a happy person. I hope the same thing can't be said for the commentators.

Then there is a WONDERFUL commentary on the new-to-DVD CINCINNATI KID. Long overdue for release, this is a sparkling transfer for a 40 year old movie that feels quite contemporary,

Director Norman Jewison gives a wonderful, insightful commentary, and it's great to see such stalwart stars as Ann Margret, Edward G. Robinson, Karl Malden & Joan Blondell. Going backward, you get John Sturges' entertaining 1959 Sinatra vehicle NEVER SO FEW, but it was McQUeen who stole the movie. He's wonderful, and so is Sinatra and his leading lady Gina Lollabrigida. Another DVD debut. Lastly is McQueen in his 2nd to last film, TOM HORN. A sturdy western that holds up very well.

It's obvious McQueen was no longer his virile, youthful self,

but it doesn't effect the entertainment value of the piece.

Then the cherry on the sundae. THe definitive McQueen film.

If anyone deserves a box set it's Seve McQueen. The greatest of the Hollywood "Mans Man". McQueen made some great movies for Warner Brothers as he did for MGM before them, and we are lucky to get the fantastic Warner Brothers DVD treatment that they have bestowed on their recent box set.

While The GREAT ESCAPE is my personal favorite McQueen film I am happy to see BULLIT, and NEVER SO FEW in the same set. It's pretty funny seeing a movie not starring Steve McQueen in his box set. Never so few was a staring vehicle for Frank Sinatra, but because of his scene stealing co-star Sinatra went on record as calling NEVER SO FEW a McQueen film. It also had a great Director John Sturges who also made THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, and THE GREAT ESCAPE with McQueen.

PAPILLON, THE GETAWAY, THE CINCINATTI KID, and the very underated TOM HORN are also included in the awesome box set. I was not yet born when Steve McQueen passed away, but I can tell you this, I have not been on the planet for more than twenty three years, but I can safely say that there has not been a actor/stuntman cooler than Steve McQueen.

McQueen was so cool that even Norman Jewison couldn't understand him at times. In a funny anecdote on the Cincinnati Kid director commentary on disc 4, Jewison says that McQueen looked at him at one point on set and said, "Are you twisting my melon, man?" Jewison then laughs and says, "I never knew WHAT he was talking about, he was so hip." Yeah, baby! Now that's cool.

This box set is done up right -- has all my favorites except Magnificent Seven, and is heavy on McQueen's better known films. So far I've watched all but Never So Few, but I had already gotten my money's worth after the Bullitt double disc. The documentaries are funny and insightful. The rest is just icing on one big cake of cool. We certainly don't make 'em like McQueen anymore, but at least we have a hefty body of work to treasure -- R.I.P. Steve!
