At BENSIN we think Steve McQueen should have been a contender as James Bond.
In the first draft of ‘Bullitt’, Det. Frank Bullitt was a Boston policeman who ate a lot of ice cream & never solved a case. Bullitt’s famous chase scene didn’t feature either.
Steve McQueen changed the script & based his character on San Francisco Homicide Inspector Dave Toschi, famous for his work on the Zodiac killings. McQueen also made a copy made of Toschi's custom fast-draw shoulder holster.
This design features Frank Bullitt dusting off his tuxedo & getting his martini shakers ready as the best 007 ever!
