The Sand Pebbles

A McQueen film from ’66 was The Sand Pebbles; seeing him play a gunboat engineer, Jake Holman, parolling the Yangtse River in the twenties amidst the turmoil of a chinese revolution. He received his only Oscar nomination for this role.

Here’s a great shot as the actor relaxes with co-star Richard Crenna, who played the ‘boat captain. Steve atop a fresh loooking Triumph, Crenna a rickshaw.
