STEVE MCQUEEN: THE MAN & LE MANS is a documentary about the Hollywood actor and his ill-fated drama about the 24 hour motor racing event.

Language

There are multiple uses of strong language ('f**k'). Other bad language includes uses of 'shit', 'damn', 'ass' and 'screw'.

Other issues include footage of real accidents during the Le Mans races, including cars on fire and wreckage by the side of the track. There is some discussion of fatal accidents and one driver's body is seen, covered with a blanket, as it is carried off on a stretcher.

There are some mild sex references as people discuss extra-marital affairs and the 'free sex' that came with fame and success.

There are some verbal references to the murders committed by the Manson gang and how the bodies were mutilated.
