The Cutting Edge

The Cutting Edge - The Magic of Movie Editing (2004) is included on the "Bullitt" (1967) Blu-ray disk.

What a pleasant surprise to find this feature lenght documentary. Why it is included is a mystery to me. I recommend you rent this version of Bullitt just for this documentary if you are at all interested in the art/technology/history of film.

Why was the movie call Bullet when it featured a car chase through San Francisco? Bullitt is the name of the Steve McQueen's character, SFPD Lieutenant Frank Bullitt.

Check out the movie trailer. (Is that Phylis Grant playing at the restaurant?)
