Best known for a legendary, nearly ten-minute-long ChaseScene in which [=McQueen=], largely eschewing stunt men, famously drove a [[CoolCar certain green Mustang]] all over San Francisco in pursuit of two bad guys in a black Dodge Charger. Also one of the first chase scenes filmed with cars at full speed instead of using sped-up film as a cheat.

* ChaseScene: Boy howdy. Hell, it [[TropeCodifier set the standard]] for the modern filmed car chase as we know it. Before then, most car chases were staged by DrivingADesk.

* ThrowItIn: McQueens reversing-burnout wasn't in the script; McQueen mistakenly missed the turn. Director Peter Yates felt that McQueen's obvious frustration with the error fit with the mood of the chase and decided to keep it.
