Bullitt (1968)

An iconic cop movie, famous for Steve McQueen’s taciturn cool and trusty Mustang.

Film details


British director Peter Yates was the first of many to turn the hills and bends of San Francisco into a dream car chase race track in this truly iconic 60s cop movie. Justifiably famous for Steve McQueen’s taciturn cool, his ability to rock a sweater and his trusty Mustang, this policer thrums with both Lalo Schifrin’s jazzy score and the sound of screaming wheels.
