Somebody Up There Likes Me
|The best available homevideo format is DVD, packaged as part of The Paul Newman Collection. |
DVD aspect ratio unconfirmed. The Original Aspect Ratio of the film is 1.75:1.
|Directed by Robert Wise, who would later direct Steve in The Sand Pebbles.|
Somebody Up There Likes Me is a biopic of the early years of real life World Middleweight Champion Boxer Rocky Graziano.
Paul Newman stars as Graziano, and Pier Angeli plays his wife Norma Graziano.
|Steve McQueen's debut film|
|Steve as Fidel (wielding a knife)
Screencap provided by Daniel Smague.
|This was Steve's first acting role in a big screen film (apart from Girl On The Run , in which he was simply a background extra). He played the character of 'Fidel', and his short scene involved Fidel violently wielding a knife.|
|The part of Graziano was originally written for James Dean, but when Dean died in a car accident a few
weeks before filming, Newman replaced him. |
Steve's first wife Neile thought that he (Steve) was terrible in the part.
Steve's performance in this film was uncredited, and it was a 'bit part' that payed 19 dollars a day.
18 years later he would recieve equal co-star billing with Newman in The Towering Inferno and earn the biggest movie pay cheque in history (12 Million Dollars).
