In May 1970, Steve McQueen flew to France to begin work on the film that meant more to him than any other. At last he could make the film that had been his passion for the best part of a decade - Le Mans. Le Mans had the biggest star in Hollywood, one of its great directors and the best technical team ever assembled. But as production rolled at the start of June 1970, what McQueen didn't yet have was a script. This is the story of how one of the most charismatic movie stars of all time would lose almost everything in the pursuit of his dream.
