Counting down my 50 Greatest Movie Scenes of All Time.
The scene that revolutionised the car chase for Hollywood is the first film in my list, and it’s always good to start with a bang. Watching this scene you see a lot of techniques and shots reused and rehashed in later films, with McQueen’s beautiful Ford Mustang flying over those famous San Francisco streets one of the most iconic moments of sixties cinema. It’s high octane stuff throughout and there’s no dialogue at all, only the sound of burning rubber and roaring engines to accompany you through the chase. A great way to get the adrenaline pumping.
