IIRC- SMcQ did all his own driving AND the special effects were real and not CGI...Oh how I miss the days where men were men and not millennials....
Sadly something that most people born after 1995 (ish) will never understand.
Panavision 35mm cameras are as good as anything you’ll get these days , and 70mm even better ; as for editing , you are frame accurate on a film editing table so no issues there either .So what ......60's movie - there is cr@p continuity in modern films and they have access to much better cameras, editing equipment etc these days.....
There were plenty of cameras covering the Bullit car chase , so really no excuse for such poor editing .
... I remember thinking , even back at the time , that the obvious re use of shots in Bullit was particularly bad................... .
I was 11 when it came out , and i remember clearly seeing the same shots used over and thinking how bad it was .You must be really old with a really good memory.
I saw it as a teenager in the sixties and the only thing I can remember about it was enjoying the car chase, loving the movie and drooling over the Mustang.
And added tyre squeal - on gravel FFS.
I loved Two Lane Blacktop , the two car jockeys ( Peter Fonda and his pal ) versus the guy in the Gto , who couldn’t have been more up his own ar$e without being inside out - possibly the greatest road movie .It must just be me but I find car chases and action movies banal. Skids (the driving never rises above that level) bangs and flashes don't do much for me and the only car related film I have any time for (though it's so long since I've seen it if I saw it today I might not rate it all) is Two Lane Blacktop.
(I make an exception for some of the motorsport films from the 60/70s probably because they have the drivers at their heart).
