His new assignment seems routine: protecting a star witness for an important trial. But before the night is out, the witness lies dying and cool, and no-nonsense Detective Frank Bullitt (Steve McQueen) won’t rest until the shooters and the kingpin pulling their strings are nailed.
From opening shot to closing shoot-out, Bullitt crackles with authenticity: San Francisco locations, crisp dialogue, and to-the-letter police, hospital, and morgue procedures.
An Oscar winner for “Best Film Editing,” this razor-edged 1968 thriller features one of cinema history’s most memorable car chases. Buckle up and brace for unbeatable action.

Did you know?
- Although Steve McQueen was credited with the driving during the chase sequence, it was actually shared by McQueen and Bud Ekins, one of Hollywood’s best stunt drivers. From the interior shots looking forward inside the Mustang, it’s easy to see which one is driving. When McQueen is driving, the rear view mirror is down reflecting his face. When Ekins is driving it is up, so his face is hidden.
- Several items of clothing worn by Steve McQueen received a boost in popularity thanks to the film: desert boots, a trench coat, a blue turtleneck sweater and, most famously, a brown tweed jacket with elbow patches.
- Bullitt’s reverse burnout during the chase scene actually wasn’t in the script; Steve McQueen had mistakenly missed the turn. The footage was still kept, though.
