“Bullitt” is one of Hollywood’s greatest contributions to the automotive film canon.

It pioneered the street chase scene genre, with Steve McQueen actually piloting a Mustang through the actual streets of San Francisco, giving the audience a rare and much appreciated sensation that they too were hurtling past cars, streetcars and pedestrians through narrow streets.
