The haul from the first bank robbery totals $2,660,527.62, as explained by the police. It is broken down in to 16,240 $20 bills, 19,871 $10 bills, 34,465 $5 bills, and 129,000 $1 bills. Added up, that only totals $824,835.00, as later detailed by a secretary. That makes the whole greater than the sum of its parts. See more »
Left early. Please come with the money... or, you keep the car. All my love, Tommy.

The entire method of robbery in this film is lifted intact from the 1952 film "Kansas City Confidential"...? Two completely different films in every other respect, the robbery is exactly the same.
I like "The Thomas Crown Affair" very much, Faye Dunaway is particular stunning in this highly entertaining film. As much as I have heard it talked about, I've never heard anyone mention the "borrowed" subplot of the robbery.
I suppose this is not unusual to film. The entire second half of "Border Town" (1935) is used again in "They Drive By Night" (1942), and yet each film credits different writers.
