Synopsis

Maverick cop Steve McQueen hunts down the killer of a key witness in this taut suspense thriller. Robert Vaughn plays the ambitious politician whose motives remain murky, but it's the car chase - a sublimely edited roller coaster of a ride (this won an Oscar for best editing) following McQueen's Mustang down San Francisco's hills at more than 100mph - that went on to inspire countless inferior imitations. Trivia: Bullitt stuntman Bud Ekins had earlier filmed the legendary motorcycle sequence (again featuring McQueen) in The Great Escape.
