Steve McQueen, a class act, was thee best and his driving in the famous car chase was masterful.
If you've ever driven in San Francisco it's murder on a clutch and brakes due to the steep hils and stop signs at the bottom of all of those hills.
Staging the best car chase ever was done in the toughest city to drive fast in PERIOD.
The movie plot was also meaty. Robert Vaughn was a complete pain the arse...and gave even politicians a bad name.
