Okay, I’ve always had crush on Steve McQueen.
I cut this artist some slack, as he painted this on seriously rough stucco wall. Below is the poster the painting is a rendition of. There are many Bullitt posters, but I didn’t see the exact one the artist painted.
You can buy various size repros of the poster, starting at $25.00. However, I saw an original (1968 – mint condition) theatre size poster for sale in the U.K. £4,500.00.
MANY say the car chase in Bullitt is the greatest car chase ever filmed. I agree. It’s real. No CGI! Steve McQueen was credited with the driving during the chase sequence. Actually it was shared with Bud Ekins, one of Hollywood’s best stunt drivers.
The chase kicks in at 3 minutes, but dial it back to the beginning for the full effect of this 10 minute masterpiece.
In 2020, the green Mustang sold at auction for 3.4 million dollars.
