The Main Title
Thanks to Bullitt, both Steve McQueen and the Mustang Fastback had become larger than life. Because of the immensity of the two icons, sometimes car fans forget something very important. Read this slowly and deliberately: Bullitt is only a movie.
With that in mind, and appreciating Bullitt as such, I wanted to share something with you guys this weekend. Not only did Bullitt win the Academy Award for Best Film Editing, but it was also nominated for Best Sound.
I must confess, I wasn't taken by the Lalo Schiffrin's score at first but now I can't imagine any other tune that could compliment Lt. Frank Bullitt so perfectly.
Have an awesome weekend everyone!
