Bullitt car chase voted best ever
The ten-minute chase through the streets of San Francisco topped a poll of 5,500 film buffs carried out by Choices Video.
In the 1968 movie, Steve McQueen - as Detective Lieutenant Frank Bullitt - pursues two hit men in a 375 bhp V8 Dodge Charger behind the wheel of his 390 GT 325 bhp V8 Ford Mustang.
The sequence is widely credited with creating the modern car chase, and set the standard by which subsequent action movies have been judged.
Second in the poll was the 1974 low-budgeter Gone In Sixty Seconds, followed by The French Connection.
