Default Brando or McQueen?

Which one is cooler? I say McQueen because he was a dyed-in-the-wool motorhead.

Brando was cool on screen, but McQueen was cool all the time.

McQueen by a longshot. The Great Escape, The Sand Pebbles, LeMans and The Getaway all great movies.

McQueen. I don't think he's "yella" and I think he's "got tha gutz".

Yup, McQueen no question. Just watched Papillon the other night, great movie. Then add The Blob, Great Escape, Bullitt all great movies. He was one of a kind.

McQueen was the essence of cool! he did some great movies that many he would have done more of his own stunts if allowed. he raced cars, he raced bikes, hung out with some of the great racing legends, collected some really cool cars and bikes, got some of the hot woman of his time. yeah, definately McQueen!

McQueens life is far more incredible than any movie. Born in Indianapolis, In. to a stunt flyer Terry Mcqueen and a prostitute. He spent his early days in street gangs and jails. He was in the Coast Guard and the USMC. He was a guard for President Truman. Terry Steve McQueen was a life long drug addict. He died in Mexico at age 50 in 1980 from cancer.

Both McQueen and James Dean were from Indiana. Both of them liked fast cars. James Dean over corrected a fast car in Texas.

McQueen also regularly would order large quantities of stuff as part of his contract for many movies, then donate it all to charities like a boy's home (he spent time in one growing up). Stuff like shaving kits, jeans, shoes. That sort of stuff.
