I'm watching Bullitt for the twentieth time. Even after 34 years, them two no-goodniks still hit that gas station every time. Wow!! There'll never be another car chase like that one. Steve McQueen forever!

Never mind the chase. Jackie Bisset was a hottie. She has to be the prettiest movie chick of all time.
Car chase was superb. But the French Connection was too.
But the best car chase ever was in to Live and Die in L.A.
Count this in the bs thread list? LOL

Bullitt Deffintely the best car chase ever, [censored] its the grand daddy of car chases. 1968 Dodge Charger and a 1968 Mustang GT For nine minutes and 12 seconds of film, not a word is spoken! awesome. i believe there was a Balabushka cue in the charge but it blew up with the car lol.
2nd Vanishing point that Dodge Challenger was nasty!
3rd Gone in 60 Seconds (1974) originall one
4th French connection
and somewhere in my list mad max &amp; road warrior

Yeah, but the Blues Brothers chase was only slapstick. The one in Bullitt was realistic - it could have happened. It never intended to make anyone laff.

All great car chase scene's. I will add the chase scene through France in "Ronin" with the Audi A-8...fantastic footage. Vanishing Point, a classic...one car {White Challenger} they used in the movie was at "Don Garlits Car Museum" in Ocala Florida. Bullit still reigns supreme... Any McQueen fans should check out "Any given Sunday". Remeber, McQueen+ Motorcycle= great flick!!

Good morning:

Definitely a great flick... I still get motion sickness just watching them race through the streets of San Francisco.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;While they were filming the "chase scenes", Steve McQueen begged them to let him drive one. Finally, the director relented. They set it up, Steve was told to drive down the hill, lock the breaks up and make a right turn going down another hill. In his excitement, he skidded past his turn. He got so mad that he threw it in reverse and literally smoked the tires backing up the 40 feet. Threw it in first and shot down the street. It looked so good that the director left it in. ***Lester***

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote: whitewolf:</font><hr> Sorry to bust your bubble about Steve McQueen. In real life he was an $ss$ole supreme. He came to our little town of Vinton Va and rode he horse up on the church lawn for cyring out loud. Then at all of the festivities he was dart as a fart. This was 30 years ago. I liked his acting however, but I wouldn't place him that high on the totem pole. <hr></blockquote>
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;I met him in 1969 in Baja, California at a dune buggy event. He was bearded, had long hair and looked like he was homeless. I was the only one of my group that recognized him. He showed up trailering two dune buggies, and he wouldn't quit until he made it up the selected hill. He was the only one who made it to the top that day. Only talked with him for about a half an hour so I can't say I saw his "A-hole" side. However I was truly impressed with his "no-quit" side. But for acting, he was the epitome of "quiet-cool". ***Lester***

It's not a chase movie, bw. It's a classic crime picture with a fabulous car chase included. You should see it.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;I like when Gene Hackman says "You just killed an unarmed man". Clint Eastwood replies "Well, he shoulda armed himself". ***Lester***

Great movie.. great car chase.... has to be in the top 3 car chases of all time..

My vote goes for a great car chase was in a Robert DeNiro movie called "Ronin" 1998, chase scene in Rome had me hitting the seat in front of me thinking it was the breaks.

But, so did Bullitt...
