    For some reason that almost looks worse than modern day traffic.

    I loved how all the men stopped at looked at the camera as if they were mad at it.
    Did you hear about the pirate with two wooden legs?

    They caught fire and burned his ass to the ground!

    saw a doc on that. a lot of it was staged. if you notice the same car drives by a bunch of times... or am i talking about bullett? either way this was right before a wicked huge earthquake. and they figured a large percentage of the people in film were probably killed. tragic. but very interesting video.

    If they'd filmed Bullit in 1904 I doubt it would be the classic it is today.

    thats pretty eerie, specially when you realise every single human on that film is certainly dead now..

    does anyone know where the film was shot? the exact street? would be cool to see how it looks today..
