wehadfacesthen: Steve McQueen, New York, c.1953 or 54 After five years in the US Marines, McQueen used the GI Bill to go to New York in 1952 in order to study acting. He studied and worked, mostly off-Broadway, until 1955 when he made his Broadway debut in Hatful of Rain (Ben Gazzara was the star). After that taste of success he headed to Hollywood, where once again he kicked around for years, playing small roles in films and on television, before he was offered the starring role in a TV series called Wanted: Dead or Alive, which played on his outlaw image. It was a huge hit and made his name known across the country.
