The Thomas Crown Affair (19-Jun-1968)|
Director: Norman Jewison
Writer: Alan R. Trustman
Music Composed and Conducted by: Michel Legrand
Producer: Norman Jewison
Keywords: Crime, Heist
Steve McQueen as playboy financier engineers a bank heist as a lark; Faye Dunaway is a pretty bank investigator who knows he did it; she engages him in a game of cat-and-mouse to draw him out. Excellent caper, though the split-screen effect now appears dated. Winner of Best Original Song Oscar, and nominated for Best Score. Compare the robbery from Kansas City Confidential (1952). Remade as an art heist starring Pierce Brosnan, The Thomas Crown Affair (1999).

Hands down one of the best movies I've had the pleasure to enjoy. The chess scene between Vicki and Tommy is one of the sexiest is mesmorising and romantic as well. I saw an interview with Norman Jewison who described the characters as "a couple of shits". True but they filled the screen. Once in awhile we have a chick flik night while the husbands get together and go out for drinks and dinner. We watched the remake with Pierce Brosnan and Ranee Russo. There is no remake of the original! I don't know why they even tried.
Sincerely, Barbara Stevens
