Steve McQueen and The Blob.

Actor Steve McQueen seemed to come out of nowhere into fame as a movie actor.

But he really did have a rather difficult beginning; his first leading role in a movie was in a “space invader” plot that he believed would never make any money.

What’s more, he was 27 years old and cast in the role of a teenager.

He was so convinced the film was doomed to failure he took his pay upfront with no residuals or percent of the profits.

McQueen went on to make many more movies in his career, some of them critically acclaimed, one earning a nomination for an Academy Award.

But his performance in this one was not memorable according to movie critics of the time, who mostly ignored his presence.
