Did Steve McQueen play these movie roles before or after Wanted Dead or Alive?

Did he fight the Blob and make a great escape before or after playing bounty hunter Josh Randall?

Steve McQueen was just another working actor in the years before starring as bounty hunter Josh Randall in Wanted Dead or Alive. His exploits prior to the classic TV Western aren’t widely remembered.

There's no doubt the show helped make him a star. After it ended in 1961, he became a household name with a string of hit action films throughout the Sixties and Seventies. Still, his career can’t be easily divided into before and after Wanted. After all, he played one of his best-remembered roles neither before nor after but actually during the show’s run.

Here are ten Steve McQueen movie roles from the 1950s and '60s ranging from iconic to cult classics. Can you guess whether each one came before, during or after he played Josh Randall on Wanted Dead or Alive?
