Bullet set the standard. Nobody remembers the plot, IMHO the chase scene has never been duplicated. No computer enhancements with McQueen doing all or most of the driving.

It is a short film, only around 9 minutes long but definitely worth a look. Go to YouTube and watch the highest quality version you can find, and make sure you turn the volume way up! The sound is intoxicating! I have a copy on DVD so I don’t have a link to share.

Now tell me me your favorite so I can watch it and maybe find a new favorite!

Bored on a Sunday night.

After watching it, as I don't think I'd ever seen it, I was dumbstuck at how fake it seemed. That car was maybe doing 80 at the most in some spots, and far less most of the time. The overtaking speeds were down right slow, the static street environ passed, slow, you have a Ferrari running 5000rpm in 5th gear and there's no way that car was doing anywhere near the speeds associated with the soundtrack. Having driven like a douce my whole life, it wasn't even close. Yea, he ran a lot of red lights, most of them at any real speed had wide open sight lines, the ones in the narrow streets are at far lower speeds. Although, it did sound good, it did "look" good, it was exciting, it just wasn't close to real.

Then I watched the how to video and I think he still played it up to be more than it actually was.

I just saw "ts a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" and was amazed by the stunt driving in the moving made in 1962 using old cars and little safety measures
