Steve McQueen’s Wool Vest from “The Reivers”
Based on the 1962 William Faulkner’s bestselling novel, The Reivers won a Pulitzer before being made into a 1969 feature, directed my Mark Rydell (On Golden Pond, Cinderella Liberty). The film received two Academy Award nominations and McQueen was nominated for a Golden Globe as best actor for his portrayal of Boon Hogganbeck, the plantation handyman and a reiver (that’s a cheat, a liar, a brawler and womanizer), who has just four days to teach young Lucius the facts of life while heading down to Memphis in a stolen car. With rascals, prostitutes and race horses - the film is classic McQueen with young Lucius discovering the world of adults - from racism and vice to honor and courage.
