The Golden Age of Hollywood

I just saw Bullitt on the big screen, and it was naturally, a wow.  The car chase actually made me a tad ill, seeing them go over the hills of San Francisco that way in the cinema.  (McQueen's granddaughter said the same thing happened to her.)  And it's so nice seeing a good cop show in the movies where there isn't one computer being used.  Just good police work.

Philip D'Antoni, who produced BULLITT, was my publicity client when the film was released.

A couple of years later, he produced THE FRENCH CONNECTION and won the Best Picture Oscar.

The car chase scene is amusing to anyone familiar with San Francisco.  You can't turn a corner in one neighborhood and in the next shot, you're three miles away in a completely different part of town! But it looks good in the movie.
