This film is just one long car chase.



The chases in this film are really good too.



For high octane, adrenaline charged white knuckleness nothing beats Father Ted.

In the opening scene of Marathon Man, there's a car chase. Not the best of car chases, but it was filmed on my block and my building is in the scene. Does that count?

I vote for the car chase in Bullitt.

@Roberta,
Me too, I loved Bullitt, if you can love a movie.

Ahhh, g00d! re the filming on your block.

From 1973's The Seven-Ups, great movie with Roy Scheider (pre-Jaws), Bill Hickman (who was also part of Bullitt and The French Connection), in his last known screen role and the late Victor Arnold.

I like the "Bonnie and Clyde" car chase, not least because of
"Foggy Mountain Breakdown" as background music.

If it's just chasing this is the best.

A Ford Mustang running down a MOPAR 440?

I know it was fiction, but....

I guess at least they didn't pretend that the Mustang was capable of running down a Hemi.

(When they were filming they had to keep letting off the gas in the Charger just so the Mustang could keep up.)


By the way:

Nearly 50 years after it was last seen, a 1968 Ford Mustang found in a Mexican junkyard has been confirmed to be one of two known to have been used in the filming of the Steve McQueen movie "Bullitt."

@glitterbag,
It's what got me into the Coens. I almost didn't see it because it came out with a splurge of baby movies like Look Who's Talking and some others. I mistakenly thought it might be more of the same until someone put me right.

My pal, who was a bit of a petrolhead, (well, I was too), and I went to see Bullitt in 1969 at a cinema in Balham, South London. We loved it! The audience was mostly young guys like us (we were 17). When we came out we saw (and heard!) a guy revving his engine like crazy, and then he dropped the clutch and charged away down the road to Tooting. If the car had been something a bit more powerful than a 10 year old Austin A40 it would have been more impressive. He wasn't the only one. We went off on my friend's Suzuki 50cc motorcycle. He did get a Ford Escort Mexico later.

I don't know anything about cars, and in the movie Bullitt, I think that the make of the cars was irrelevant. The cooler king was driving one of them.

I will kind of semi-dodge because it is worth it:

The best of best in the genre!
