This action thriller was directed by Peter Yates, and stars Steve McQueen, Robert Vaughn and Jacqueline Bisset. It is undoubtedly Steve McQueen's most famous role, where he plays San Francisco Police Lieutenant Frank Bullitt. Bullitt and his team are given the important task of guarding, who they think is, mobster Johnny Ross over the weekend, as Ross is due to give evidence on the Monday, in a Senate subcommittee hearing on organised crime. Things don't go quite to plan when two hitmen burst in and shoot Ross, who later dies in hospital. Bullitt is then determined to find who was behind killing the witness in his protection, and in doing so a bigger story unfolds. The other star of the film is the 1968 Ford Mustang, which Bullitt drives in the exciting, and now classic car chase scenes.  

The sheer size of this piece gives real impact to the super-cool image of Steve McQueen standing over the famous car chase. The poster was printed in four sheets and designed to be pasted to huge billboards. As a result only unused copies survived. The Ford Mustang GT driven by Steve McQueen in the legendary chase scene was recently sold in auction for a world record $3.74 million. Owing to the fact that this size poster was pasted on billboards, only those that were unused survived. There are fewer than five known surviving examples of this piece.
