Movie Info

Bored millionaire Thomas Crown (Steve McQueen) concocts and executes a brilliant scheme to rob a bank without having to do any of the work himself. When Vicki Anderson (Faye Dunaway), an investigator for the bank's insurance company, takes an interest in Crown, the two begin a complicated cat-and-mouse game with a romantic undertone. In an attempt to decipher Anderson's agenda, Crown devises another robbery like his first, wondering if he can get away with the same crime twice.

Audience Reviews for The Thomas Crown Affair

  • Apr 11, 2021
    Steve McQueen exemplifies "the good life, male fantasy edition" in this dream of the 1960s - a rich businessman who dabbles in bank robbery, not for the sake of the money but for the thrill of doing the crime and not getting caught. Faye Dunaway is the smart and sexy insurance agent out to get him. The camera lingers over the things money can buy. McQueen's main job is simply looking good. Dunaway's main job is simply to desire him. Our job is simply to desire the slick if vapid fantasy projected. The most celebrated scene involves the pair playing a game of sexy chess in this extended magazine advertisement.

    This movie wasn't bad, it was just way too boring, I didn't even watch it all. Some day I'll give it another chance maybe.

    A great and innovative film by the 60's, with Steve Mcqueen and Faye Dunaway, directed by Norman Jewison.Made with split screen technique in the actions scenes, excellent soundtrack , and the usual charm of the characters, this movie is a cult.The chess game scene is sexy in extreme (without naked people or explicit ).It was nominated for two Academy Awards and won the Award for Best Song with "Windmills of Your Mind".

    Nevermind the use and abuse of the so called avant-garde techniques like multiple split screen or neon lights fade out, It simply is a sensous and stylish cross between romantic melodrama and caper movie, in which the cool couple McQueen and Dunaway squeeze out their immense chemistry on the screen. The chess play/seduction scene is the best moment of the entire film.
