And it wasn’t just the visuals that made the “Bullitt” chase a classic. Gill says the sound design played a role as well.
“To hear the tires screeching and the shifting and the engine revving up- those kind of things are what’s really needed in a car chase today, and we still do it. We still use those little techniques in today’s world.”
The chase isn’t perfect, however. Eight hubcaps fly off the same car at various points throughout the sequence, and the same Volkswagen Beetle shows up in the background of several different shots. But Gill says that’s all part of the charm.
“There’s no doubt that this chase holds up in today’s world.”
