1980: Actor Steve McQueen, nicknamed the "King of Cool" and one of the top box-office draws of the 1960s and 1970s, dies at age 50 in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico, following an operation to remove or reduce several metastatic tumors in his neck and abdomen. McQueen earned an Academy Award nomination for his role in "The Sand Pebbles" and some of his other popular films include "The Magnificent Seven," "The Great Escape" and "Bullitt."
