As far as Steve Mcqueen films go this is the best. It has everything :great cutting edge split-screen direction by Norman Jewison, terrific action sequences by Mcqueen(who begged for this role), great supporting roles for Paul Burke and Faye Dunnaway, Oscar winning song by Michel Legrand, million dollar wardrobe, excellent story by Alan Trustman...plus a very erotic sex and chess sequence...dunebuggies and lobster broils on the beach...glider flights...bank robberies...hard to beat a great film like this. Pierce Brosnan had big shoes to fill with the remake, an earnest endeavor it was. This edges out Bullitt as McQueen's best by his portrayal of significantly expressing so easily a glamorous lifestyle everyone dreams about...which is what makes that movie magic.
