Abstract:

Beginning with the pacesetting automotive pyrotechnics first brought to the screen in Bullitt, Jesse Crosse shows us the world's great filmmakers following suit--stretching creative talents, technology, budgets, and sometimes credibility to create the most amazing car chase sequences ever filmed. In a close-up look at the ten greatest car chases of all time, he uncovers the secrets behind the making of these sequences, gets the inside scoop from the moviemakers themselves, and picks a winner. A brilliantly illustrated thrill ride for car enthusiasts and moviegoers, this book is the first to treat the car chase as an art form in its own right--and to offer dizzying entertainment along the way.
