Question about the Movie Bullitt starring Steve Mcqueen

I have never seen this movie before.  Just the trailer only.  It looks good based on the trailer.  Is this movie pretty good?  Im always wanting to buy great older classic movies.  And Im wanting to own at least one movie of the major movie stars from several yrs ago.  Actors like Mcqueen paul Newmann, etc.

thanks

^ I merged the above post by Rawhide7, which was in a thread by itself, with this "classic movies" thread. I had to edit it to get the title of the movie he's asking about into the post, so I hope that's OK with R7!

I noticed at least one mention of Bulitt among the earlier posts here, so perhaps that will go a little way towards answering the question. :)

Thanks SK and Grant.

I'm fine with it KC. That's the perfect place for my question. I actually forgot about that post. And I'm the one that started it. Thanks

Speaking of old B&W films, has any seen the 1937 French film, Grand Illusion ?

Itís being shown here next Monday as part of a classic Monday movies season.

Grand Illusion is a deeper, richer precursor to The Great Escape. It's an excellent movie and you shouldn't miss a chance to see it on the big screen.
