Thomas Crown (Steve McQueen) is a self-made Boston millionaire who masterminds a bank heist in hopes of leaving it all behind. Tired of being part of the Establishment, he has hopes of pulling off the caper and flying to Rio. Erwin Weaver (Jack Weston) leads the cast of crooks who never actually meet Crown but manage to pull off the robbery without a hitch. Crown deposits 3 million in a Swiss bank account, pays off the crooks, and waits for the insurance company to repay the bank for the loss.

The Norman Jewison film tells a crackerjack story, well-tooled, professionally crafted and fashioned with obvious meticulous care.
It's no doubt dated now, and the multiscreen graphics won't make any sense on a pan-and-scan video version, but this heist movie starring Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway was considered pretty hot stuff back in 1968.
Possibly the most under-plotted, underwritten, over-photographed film of the year.
It's worth noting that 30 years and dozens of caper films later, the closing twist isn't nearly as startling as it once was, but it still makes for an effective conclusion.
Made at the height of Steve McQueen's popularity, this romantic heist thriller contains one of the sexiest scenes in a Hollywood film.
McQueen is charming, reads his lines well, and shows that he isn't just another short actor with an interesting face.
