The Thomas Crown Affair -- A self-made Boston millionaire Thomas Crown (Steve McQueen) 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. The cast of crooks lead by Erwin Weaver (Jack Weston) manage to pull off the robbery without a hitch and without ever actually meeting Crown. After depositing 3 million into a Swiss bank account and paying off the crooks, Crown waits for the insurance company to repay the bank for the loss. With the help of savvy detective Eddy Malone (Paul Burke), insurance investigator Vicky Anderson (Faye Dunaway) attempts to find the mastermind behind the heist.

All around perfection, 27 July 2001
Author: (mbrown-7) from New York

Amazing movie. I give movies a 10 when I can come up with no suggestion at all to make it better. The cinematography, editing, dialogue, acting, costumes, locations and most of all direction of this movie are perfect. A definite must see if you are a fan of James Bond or risk taking films such as The Graduate and Rosemary's Baby. After you watch it, make sure to watch the remake which simply pales in comparison. The two together are a perfect example of what we loose from the comtemporary Hollywood blockbuster formula.
