That was over 46 years ago in 1973.
In 1980 he died aged just 50, starring in 40 films in his career, 13 since Papillon was released.
In Papillon, I think Steve McQueen looks:
Papillon scores 7.8 out of 10 on The Movie Database.
Steve McQueen's first acting role was as 'Fidel' in Somebody Up There Likes Me, released in 1956 when he was 26.
