What's on TV Friday: Steve McQueen movie marathon on TCM

Ed Stockly
In 1968, McQueen starred in "Bullitt," possibly his best known film. Playing a cop (at a time when cops were considered "square"), McQueen and the green Ford Mustang he drove made one of the most memorable chase-scene films ever, revving through the streets of San Francisco.
The 1968 action drama "Bullitt" airs on TCM as part of a Steve McQueen movie marathon. (Warner Bros.)
