In 1951 a young Steve McQueen was contemplating entering 'tile setting school' (through the assistance provided
to him under the GI bill), but his plans took a change of direction when a girl he was dating took him to
'The Neighbourhood Playhouse', one of New York's premier acting schools. Steve's interest was sparked.
He applied to enter the school on June 25 1951, and was accepted.|
At first acting was a bit of a lark for him, and he seemed more interested in racing bikes and dating actress's,
but as time progressed, he developed the desire to excell in acting.
