Marunouchi OAZO is hosting a very special exhibition commemorating the life of famed 1960s movie star Steve McQueen from Nov 24-28. The exhibition will display a collection of the actor’s private photos taken by his last wife, Barbara McQueen, as well as movie posters and personal effects, such as costumes and props used in his films.
This year commemorates the 80th anniversary of McQueen’s birth and 30th anniversary of his death. To mark the occasion, his book “The Last Mile” will be published in Japanese for the first time.
On Nov 26, Barbara McQueen will be at Marunouchi OAZO to discuss aspects of her late husband’s life, including past movie roles, with Tokyo University Prof Kang Sang-jung, a well-known television celebrity in Japan and avid Steve McQueen fan.
The exhibition is open from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. (7 p.m. on Nov 28).© Japan Today
