  1. During the filming of the Movie in Prescott, my Father Dr Ernie Geever, MD got a call from
    the Director that the film Star Steve McQueen – his voice was raspy and the Director was
    concerned with his audio quality. Dad’s Office got the call and the Actor went to get
    an examination of his throat, chest, etc. Dad had an X-ray Machine and took films of his Lungs
    and Chest. They revealed his Cancer that lead to his early death.
    Dad referred Steve McQueen to UCLA Medical Center – Oncology Department, since
    he was returning to Los Angeles.
    Dr Ernie Geever was Chief of Surgery at Whipple Veterans Hospital in the 1950s and was in
    Private Practice in Prescott for 50-years.
    He was a WWII war hero decorated for Valor in Combat in Europe, twice.
    He rests in Arlington National Cemetery not far from the grave stones of
    Bucky O’neil and Ernest A. Love.
