Robert L. Pike's crime novel Mute Witness makes the transition to the big screen in this film from director Peter Yates. In one of his most famous roles, Steve McQueen stars as tough-guy police detective Frank Bullitt. The story begins with Bullitt assigned to a seemingly routine detail, protecting mafia informant Johnny Ross (Pat Renella), who is scheduled to testify against his Mob cronies before a Senate subcommittee in San Francisco. But when a pair of hitmen ambush their secret location, fatally wounding Ross, things don't add up for Bullitt, so he decides to investigate the case on his own. Unfortunately for him, ambitious senator Walter Chalmers (Robert Vaughn), the head of the aforementioned subcommittee, wants to shut his investigation down, hindering Bullitt's plan to not only bring the killers to justice but discover who leaked the location of the hideout.~Matthew Tobey

All remastered and Blu-ray! An extraordinary classic racing movie with an extraordinary actor, extraordinary classic car, what extraordinary racing! One of the best all-time car flicks ever made! Made even better by digital re-mastering in Blu-ray! Five star movie for only $5.99!
An oldie but still an exciting police detective story with lots of fast moving scenes including a memorable car chase that would never be possible in today's world. Great action with lots of thrills with great stars like Steve McQueen, Robert Duvall and Robert Vaughn.
Don't forget the popcorn. Enjoy!
What can I say, Steve McQueen, THE BULLITT MUSTANG and undeniably THE BEST CAR CHASE SCENE EVER FILMED. The car chase scene taking place in the hilly streets of San Francisco. One of the best cop shows ever made with the infamous Steve McQueen and one of the most iconic film cars of all time. Must have classic film that like Cool Hand Luke, the Dirty Harry films and and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, still hold their own to this day.
Steve McQueen at one of his best!!! Old scenes from the San Francisco cityscape frozen in time. I remember so many of the locations and shots from there, Great screen play and shot selections are included.
For any Steve Mcqueen fans out there, "Bullitt" is a must have.
Steve McQueen plays Lt. Frank Bullitt, a no-nonsense detective for the San Francisco PD that gets caught in the crosshairs between the Chicago mob and a city commissioner when he is tasked to provide protection for a witness.
Shot on location in Frisco, "Bullitt" features authentic characters, locations, cop procedures and one of the most thrilling car chases ever filmed. The movie score, done by Lalo Shifrin, fits the mood perfectly.
I owned this way back in the day on VHS, seeing this mastered on Blu Ray is just awesome.
For the price on this website, it would be dumb not to buy this.
