In Bullitt, it all begins with the click of a seat belt. What follows is the greatest car chase ever filmed: nine minutes of fender-crunching, brake-screaming excitement as Detective Frank Bullitt peels out at the wheel of his 68 Mustang GT in pursuit of two mobsters through the streets of San Francisco. Of equal significance, the film, and that pivotal scene, established McQueen as the undisputed King of Cool- the hero, or anti-hero, whose persona embodied the restlessness and rebellion that characterized the turbulent 1960s.
