    One of my favorite movies in the 60's and it still is. McQueen is so sauve and so smart! Weston is such a clutz he makes you nervous. Good story and beautiful direction.

  • The real thing!

    As someone who came of age in the 60s - this unforgettable movie gem is all about style. And what particularly captured my attention in this movie was the scene where Steve McQueen is in the glider against the beautiful "The Windmills of Your Mind" - indelible movie magic! And when I read about Steve McQueen's life & what a tough background he had to overcome to become who he eventually did, I had nothing but the most enormous respect, awe & admiration for someone I had up till then always viewed as if nothing else - AUTHENTIC. Very inspirational! (Read it was his favorite film too.)

    The remake of this classic with Pierce Brosnan was decent, but doesn't come close to McQueen's portrayal of bored and desperate millionaire Thomas Crown. Who'd probably be a billionaire in today's money. Anyway, Tommy stirs the still waters in his custom suit life by dreaming up a bank robbery--and carrying it out. Supporting cast here is topnotch with dreamboat Paul Burke as the cop trying to keep lovesick Faye Dunaway on the insurance investigation path. Faye's wardrobe is stunning, beginning to end, and dang if it still doesn't work in 2014. It does! Bouncy hats, cute handbags, long lashes, and that killer upsweep hair for an evening of chess at Tommy's pad. She plays her cards close to the vest, but is no match for Tommy's charm, wit, intelligence, and good taste. She's smitten. Now what to do? She knows the guy's a criminal, but she's under his spell. Great story and acting here with some really slick cinematography and cool score. Bravo performance by Faye who channels the hard-nosed insurance investigator and lovesick kitten simultaneously. And an outstanding performance by McQueen whose Tommy likes all kinds of games--money, bank robbery, dune buggying, mindgames--and never loses at any of them. Solid from start to finish.

    Director Jewison described this as a thriller "of style over content." Dunaway & McQueen look magnificent ,dialogue isn't needed to show the romantic tension, culminating in the famous chess scene. The film won an Oscar for Best song, but apart from the photography and now-common multiple screens, this can be a lifeless, dull film. Dated, but still stylish and visually-pleasing. I give it a 3/5.

    I love this movie, because I love to watch someone win The Game. Granted, McQueen's a little bit wooden at times. And too much nose-twitching. Love the scenes with Paul Burke and Dunaway... if he wasn't the penultimate cop, who was? He had a bit of a makeover here as compared to his look in The Naked City, eh what? >>> Anyhoo, nice caper!!

  • McQueen Trys...Dunaway Succeeds

    The movie is a good one. Steve McQueen is OK. The character is a little beyond his acting talent. Still he has star power. Faye Dunaway is stunning....a rare and real beauty. The famed chess game is dated and very modest by today's standard. The scene is too long but there is magic within the scene.The movie occasionally uses framed pictures in a picture. A technique I don't think is used anymore. I liked the PIPs...added to my interest.Opening song "Windmills of Your Mind" won the Oscar. Compare it to 2007's winner "It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp". Music score in Thomas Crown is first rate.Overall a good movie with a few really great visuals, and musical high notes.

  • Steve McQueen's Best Film

    • Peter Baszner
    • 9/9/08

    This role is a real departure for McQueen and he is at his best as a wealth businessman/playboy. Faye Dunaway looks stunning and believable in her role as an insurance investigator. Chess scene is fantastic! Great scenes of Beacon Hill,Boston, Cape Cod, Mt. Auburn Cemetary and Myopia polo field. This is a must see for Bostonians! Jack Weston fans will be thrilled by his performance as usual. Don"t miss it!
