Bul­litt

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - Mur­ray scul­lion

wed­nes­day 14 June @9.05pm, itV4

This is pos­si­bly the most fa­mous car film ever. But if you haven’t seen it, it cen­tres on Lt Frank Bul­litt (Steve McQueen), a mav­er­ick cop who has to pro­tect a wit­ness against a crime syn­di­cate. The car tal­ent in­cludes the 1968 Ford Mus­tang Fast­back pi­loted by Bul­litt, but the film also has some ob­scure Euro­pean mo­tors you might have missed. Out of fo­cus, but in plain sight, you’ll find a Peu­geot 403 and an Opel Kadett. Weirdly, a lone­some Hill­man Imp can be found on one of San Fran­cisco’s fa­mously steep streets. Speak­ing of which, ‘that’ hill chase scene be­came one of the best known car chases in cin­e­matic his­tory and earned Frank Keller an Os­car for his edit­ing of it.
