About That Time Steve McQueen Took Bruce Lee on a Death Wish Joy Ride
Were we aware that Spike TV is premiering a documentary about Steve McQueen? Well, apparently that’s happening tomorrow. And while “Spike TV” makes my lady parts gag, “Steve McQueen” does the exact opposite times a million.
In this clip from I Am Steve McQueen, a stunt performer named Pat E. Johnson recounts a story about a time Bruce Lee wanted to buy a Porsche, and asked McQueen (a famed Porscheoisseur) for his opinion. McQueen took Lee out for a ride on Mulholland Drive, a highway known for it’s intense curves and Lynchian nightmares, ending with Lee curled, fetal, on the floor of the car.
