40 Greatest Movie Car Chases

1) The French Connection (1971)

The Chase: It’s arguably the most iconic car-chase in movie history as Popeye Doyle chases a subway train full of villains in a 1971 Pontiac Le Mans. With the hair-raisingly dangerous sequence being filmed without the permission of the City of New York, it’s no wonder Hackman looks like he’s concentrating…

Best Bit: Popeye narrowly dodges a mother and baby, sending a stack of crates flying in the process.

    It’s in the conversation, but for me, the chase in Bullitt is better.

    No permits. No permission. Nothing. Here’s a video of director Friedkin talking about it.
