Anti-hero Steve McQueen also exemplified the ultimate in "cool" - as a young poker player in Norman Jewison's The Cincinnati Kid (1965) , and as a vengeful young half-breed in Henry Hathaway's Nevada Smith (1966) . Producer/director Norman Jewison's expensive, slick caper romance/thriller The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) (remade in 1999) overdid the artsy split-screen technique and other fancy photography (from Haskell Wexler), but featured Steve McQueen in the charming title role. In addition, he participated in one of the most exciting, extraordinary car chases in film history (with McQueen driving a Shelby Mustang 350GT chasing a Dodge Charger R/T through San Francisco) in Peter Yates' action-film Bullitt (1968) with music by Lalo Schifrin. His role as an unorthodox police lieutenant inspired other maverick cop-detective films. It was one of the first Hollywood films shot entirely on location.

(The funniest claim about ObamaCare in today’s New York Times is the statement that 20 million citizens got access to health care under the so-called Affordable Care Act. Really? You mean they got health insurance policies with $8000-deductables, when they don’t even have $500 in savings to pay for car repairs? What planet do The New York Times editorial writers live on?)

It has to happen for sure but I think it comes to a decision where you have the IBO, the WBO and WBA. They have mandatories... so provided I'm free I can't fight Joe Bloggs from anywhere I have to fight championship fighters.

This movie is great for many reasons – of which, I cite two: 1) Kevin Costner can actually play baseball, instead of looking like a moron as do many other actors trying to swing a bat. 2) Tim Robbins character wears lingerie when he pitches – which is completely classic. Besides these, there are many other elements that make the movie relevant: the mentor/mentee, the old vs. the young, fighting for the woman, baseball. But ultimately it’s about a bunch of guys trying to make their mark on life – which we can all certainly relate to.
