For the foot chase, The Third Man. Shadows, echoes, dogs...

And submarine movies should be considered too. Ping... ping... ping... boom! Slow yet suspenseful.

Many of the Indiana Jones chase scenes were fun.

Police Story (Jackie Chan), with the cars crashing down through the shanty town. It was shamelessly copied in Bad Boys 2, but I can overlook it because of the amazing freeway chase in that movie(with the boat, etc.)

If we can name two, I'd throw in the post-robbery foot chase from Raising Arizona. The music, the editing, Barry Sonnenfeld camerwork. "Son, you got a panty on your head..."

French Connection car chase story

Thanks for posting that. That explains the back story very well.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

Most realistic foot chase involving old guys:

Justified: Episode "Blaze of Glory" where Art is chasing bad guy with an oxygen tank and they both end up on the ground rubbing their sore knees. Big Grin

The French Connection, Bullitt, and Quantum of Solace are my top three.

In addition to all the others listed here, I would give an honorable mention to the dog chasing Benny in The Sandlot.

Pretty much any of the chase scenes from Mad Max Fury Road. I much prefer it to The Road Warrior.

I also really liked the tank chase scene in Goldeneye.

Watch it again and this time count gear shifts. That Chevelle must have had a magical 18 speed transmission. The sound guys went a little overboard...

You are right Crash!! Hahahaha....I had to rewatch the chase on utube. There is a lot of uneccessary shifting going on there.

Going in lock step with the boss on this one. Popeye would have chased that guy until the universe collapsed.
And no, I didn't notice the Gold Cup.

Popeye repeated it somewhat (without the car, it was a lot more of a steeplechase, on foot and going over obstacles) at the end of the French Connection 2 when he got "Frog One".
