Our 1960s movie stars included a guy who played Detective Lieutenant Frank Bullitt, a member of the 1968 San Francisco Police Department. Co-starring was the lieutenant’s car, a 1968 Ford Mustang 390 GT Fastback. Even if folks do not recall the movie, the car chase scene in the movie remains iconic.

Here is a part of the car chase scene with 1968 San Francisco in the background.

Here is the movie trailer.

And here is the son of a real SFPD officer who worked on the movie, talking about visiting the set while the movie company was filming.

Steve McQueen was an actor who first came to our attention on TV. He made some memorable movies. If you need a break from football on the weekends, I recommend “binge watching” McQueen movies. Here is a short biography.

Best wishes,
