The movie Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen as Frank Bullitt. Famous for a car chase that is totally overrated. Not great dialogue. Interesting "get-a-witness-that-the-mob-wants-dead-to-testify" plot that has been rehashed by a zillion movies since. If this movie were redone today it'd be about 25 minutes because there are a bunch of shots of people walking that just waste time (although I suppose the director was trying to set the mood or ambiance or something).
Not worth watching, even from the "trying to watch old movies and get 'cultured'" angle.
