But before the night is out, the witness lies dying and cool, no-nonsense Detective Frank Bullitt (Steve McQueen) won't rest until the shooters - and the kingpin pulling the strings - are nailed. From opening shot to closing shootout, Bullitt crackles with authenticity, San Francisco locations, crisp dialogue and to-the-letter police, hospital and morgue procedures.
