Bullitt

Visible crew/equipment: As Eddy stands up to go out of Enrico's restaurant with Bullitt, look at the only window that is in the shot. A short male with black hair gets past the crowd-control policeman (in a white helmet) on the sidewalk. The cop reaches out to stop him, but it is too late. The walkie-talkie in the cop's hand has a long antenna. It's quick, subtle and quite humourous.

Visible crew/equipment: During the chase scene, it is too obvious when the hitman in the Charger is replaced by a dummy. Most of the time, such as when the hitmen lose Bullitt, just before the chase begins, we see the hitman with his right shoulder leaning on the passenger door. When we can see into the Charger, either the actor is leaning against the door or we see the dummy sitting about a third of the way away from the door, too much towards the centre of the car. The dummy doesn't flop well with the motion of the car, either.

Visible crew/equipment: When Bullitt gets out of the cab at the car wash, just before the big chase sequence, the cameraman's reflection is visible on the door window. (01:02:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When Bullitt is in the restaurant, you can see a crew member telling people to get away from the filming.

Continuity mistake: Bullitt runs the Charger off the road into the gas station. The station explodes...Right? Not quite.... The Charger runs off the road, passes BEHIND the gas station; you can see the dust trail rising; and boom, the station explodes on cue.

Question: Just after (the real) Ross has been shot at the airport, you hear the babble of bystanders' voices. At one point you apparently hear this exchange: Person 1: "I heard he shot someone" Person 2: "He's a c**t, that's what he is". Is this part of the script, a mischievous foul-mouthed extra or my bad hearing?

Answer: The line is "He's a cop..."
