A 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4*S N.A.R.T. Spider identical to the one in the film was sold at auction for $27.5 million on August 17, 2013, in Monterey, California. When new, the N.A.R.T. Spiders were unappreciated by customers and were all sold at a discount, some for less than the standard 275 GTB/4. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, when Crown is closing a deal to buy some property, he is instructed to "sign on the top line"; but there's only one signature line on the page. See more »
Left early. Please come with the money... or, you keep the car. All my love, Tommy.

I had to write this comment after reading the other comment about this fantastic film. You must watch this with the anticipation of someone about to relish an intricate and complex dish, with the feel of The Italian Job in mind, with the knowledge that Steve McQueen is the epitome of cool (see the Tao of Steve), and with the desire to see Movie Making as it should be. This is at base a heist movie, but with Steve at the helm as a wealthy businessman who is in it for kicks, you ride along with him and enjoy his every conquest of Faye Dunaway. The "Chess with Sex" scene is very sensual and has been mimicked in many movies (Austin Powers). The soundtrack is fantastic and I think "Windmills of Your Mind" won an Oscar for Best Soundtrack. The multi-split-screen views are, in my opinion, very clever as they tell different parts of the story whilst building the suspense, as well as looking very stylish. The ending is not confusing, it is intriguing, bittersweet, tantalising, and surprising. Watch and enjoy, those in the know.
