Star's stunt double also to appear at festival of honour
Barbara McQueen and stuntman Loren Janes will be at the event, where devotees of the movie icon will gather in the actor's boyhood hometown on March 28th and 29th to celebrate the screen star's life and work.
The Steve McQueen event is timed around the actor's birthday, the late, The Great Escape star would have been 78 on March 24.
As well as Barbara and Loren, fans will be able to meet and greet the actor's longtime friend Richard Martin, who has just produced a documentary on McQueen's life, called An American Rebel.
The film is based on the book Steve McQueen: Portrait Of An American Rebel by noted biographer Marshall Terrill, who will also be a key speaker during the festivities in Slater.
Highlights of the festival will include a Steve McQueen lookalike contest and a Classic Car and Motorcycle Show.
