This is the conversation that followed:
Patti: Who’s that guy?
Me: What guy?
Patti (pointing to the screen): That guy. Who is he?
Me: That’s Steve McQueen.
Me: What? You’ve never heard of Steve McQueen?
Patti: No, who is he?
Me (long pause as I struggled to wrap my mind around the fact there is someone I know who has no idea who Steve McQueen is): The original Blob, Bullitt…
Patti: What’s Bullitt?
Me (long pause as I struggled to wrap my mind around the fact there is someone I know who has no idea what Bullitt is): What?
Patti: Don’t give me that look. I don’t know comic book stuff.
Me: The Great Escape, The Getaway, The Magnificent Seven.
Patti: Why does that sound familiar? I’ve heard of that.
Me: He’s one of the last real fucking men in Hollywood.
Patti: You could have just said he was an actor.
Help me out. Which Steve McQueen movies (besides the ones I have listed) should I show her?
