Terence Steven "Steve" McQueen (24th March 1930 - 7th November 1980) was an American actor. He was called "The King of Cool." His "anti-hero" persona, developed at the height of the Vietnam counterculture, made him a top box-office draw of the 1960s and 1970s. McQueen received an Academy Award nomination for his role in The Sand Pebbles. His other popular films include The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt, The Getaway, and Papillon, as well as the all-star ensemble films The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape, and The Towering Inferno. In 1974, he became the highest-paid movie star in the world, although he did not act in films again for four years. McQueen was combative with directors and producers, he was difficult and truculent, but his popularity placed him in high demand and enabled him to command large salaries.

One of his favourite films, The League of Gentlemen, was a great favourite of his and was considered quite groundbreaking for its time. Narrator was Richard Todd.

A battle is brewing over Richard III's skeleton found in a Leicester car park - as York demands the king be returned to his "spiritual home". Richard, the last monarch of the House of York, grew up at Middleham Castle in the Yorkshire Dales and visited York several times during his 26-month reign. Known as Richard of York before his coronation, he also funded part of the city's Medieval gated walls where a Richard III Museum can be found. The monarch's links with Yorkshire are also celebrated with a Richard III Hotel in Middleham and a Yorkshire-made Richard III Wensleydale cheese in the Dales. However, the exhumation licence issued by the Ministry of Justice says that the remains should be buried in Leicester and preparations for burial at the city's cathedral have already begun.
