The Thomas Crown Affair

Norman Jewison / US, 1968 / 100 min.

Rich playboy Thomas Crown (Steve McQueen) masterminds a bank robbery because he's bored; his adversary Vicky (Faye Dunaway) falls hook, line and sinker for the charms of the trendy Crown in shades. In Memoriam Norman Jewison.

poster The Thomas Crown Affair (Norman Jewison, US 1968)
Ultra cool performance of Dunaway: a great deal of action and brazen behaviour with no respect for law and order. DOP Haskell Wexler made abundant use of split-screen images, slow-motion takes and sunlight refracted in the lens – popular style tools in the sixties – while Dunaway and McQueen, both clad in stylish outfits, just can't seem to get enough of each other.
