The College Drop-Out and the Bank Robbers

In 1953 a group of career criminals, and a college drop-out, held up the Southwest Bank in St. Louis, Missouri. Several of the policemen and bank employees from that incident appear in this movie, which was filmed at the actual bank.

In 1955, two thousand aspiring actors auditioned for admission to Lee Strasberg’s famous Actors Studio. Only two were accepted, one fellow named Martin Landau, and a young man named Steve McQueen. A couple of years later Steve McQueen would get the starring role in this independently produced motion picture. It wouldn’t be long after this movie that Steve McQueen would rocket to the top of the Hollywood motion picture world of the 1960’s and 1970’s.

On August 8, 1969, Steve McQueen was invited to a dinner at the home of actress Sharon Tate for the next evening. He didn’t make it to that dinner because of a last-minute date with a mystery woman. The guests who did attend that dinner were brutally murdered by Charles Manson and his followers. Following that brutal evening, Charles Manson declared that Steve McQueen was next on his hit list. From that day to his last day, Steve McQueen carried a concealed weapon, and he became a ninth-degree black belt in Tang Soo Do.

In this story Steve McQueen is a young college drop-out who is recruited to be the getaway driver for three career criminals who plan to rob the Southwest Bank of St. Louis, on South Kingshighway. It will be a carefully planned, perfectly timed robbery after weeks of secret surveillance. Nothing could go wrong, right? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
