Bullitt (1968) Poster, US


Unframed: 81 x 41 in. (206 x 104 cm)


This near life-size image of Steve McQueen as Bullitt is one of the most collected and sought-after posters on this iconic 60s film. The use of just a few colours and its simple, strong vertical lines create a piece with real impact.


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.
