* ShallowLoveInterest: Jacqueline Bissett, as Bullitt's girlfriend Cathy, does two things in the movie. First, she looks very very pretty. Second, she has one scene where she guilt-trips Bullitt about getting too callous about his work. That's it.
** Though that one scene does have a lot of significance that comes to bear in the ending.

* RealityHasNoSoundtrack: The score drops out of the movie as soon as the car chase starts in earnest. The rest of the chase is a symphony of screeching tires, revving motors, and shotgun blasts.

Highly influential 1968 cop movie set in UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco. Creator/SteveMcQueenActor stars as the eponymous Lt. Frank Bullitt, a TV dinner-eating, workaday CowboyCop (in fact, the TropeMaker of this trope) who goes after the [[TheMafia Mafia]] hit men who killed a witness he was protecting.

** Glenn Ford in ''Film/TheBigHeat'' is kind of a CowboyCop, but more along the lines of TheUnfettered working for a hopelessly corrupt police force. Bullitt is probably the first pure example.
