Bullitt, Coming to The Jean Cocteau Cinema




Event Description

Through the generous support of Capital Ford and the Jean Cocteau Cinema, the 2014 Santa Fe Concorso has expanded the schedule for the Southwest's premier rare and exotic car weekend event to include a showing of Bullitt at the restored Jean Cocteau Cinema.

Starring Steven McQueen, Jacqueline Bisset, Robert Vaughan and Robert Duvall, this 1968 Academy Award winning film was a box office and critical success. The high-speed chase scene through the streets of San Francisco is recognized as one of the most exciting car chases in the history of filmmaking. McQueen, and Bud Ekins who doubled for him in the motorcycle scenes of The Great Escape, were behind the wheel of the Mustang GT.

In 2007, the Library of Congress chose the film for preservation in the United States National Film Registry for its cultural, historical and aesthetic significance.
