Bullitt Points: Memories of Steve McQueen and Bullitt

Peek Behind the Scenes of Bullitt and Help Kids at the Same Time! 100% of Net Profits Go to Boys Republic, Steve McQueen's Favorite Charity.
Hello, I’m Tony Piazza. My father, Anthony Piazza, Sr., worked as the San Francisco Police Department Liaison to Warner Brothers during the filming of Bullitt and other great films of the 1960s and 1970s. He served as a technical adviser and location scout, and directed the logistics of moving equipment, vehicles and traffic during shoots. He was instrumental in the success of many San Francisco-based movies.
I had the good fortune of growing up around the sets, meeting many of the actors, and serving as a SAG actor and stand-in myself in TV series such as Streets of San Francisco, and movies such as Towering Inferno and High Anxiety. On my sixteenth birthday I ate Thanksgiving dinner with Sidney Poitier. My first car was almost Inspector Callahan’s Ford from Dirty Harry, and I even wore a wig and an ascot to act as a photo double for Larry Hagman.
Some of my most cherished memories come from the filming of Bullitt and my family’s interactions with Steve McQueen. In 2013 the film will be celebrating its 45th Anniversary, and I’ve been asked to share some of these behind-the-scenes views, trivia and experiences with you. I put these memories together in an e-book called Bullitt Points: Memories of Steve McQueen and Bullitt.
I’d like you to buy a copy–not just so you can enjoy the stories, but because 100% of the net profits will go to Steve McQueen’s favorite charity.
