The Thomas Crown Affair

Norman Jewison (1968)

PG Certificate


Our Score
Wound up by its, to some, irritatingly wistful, Oscar-winning song, The Windmills of Your Mind, this is a movie of clockwork precision from director Norman Jewison and his photographer, Haskell Wexler, who give what is essentially a caper movie an unnecessarily reverent sheen. Steve McQueen stars as the businessman organising a bank heist out of boredom and Faye Dunaway plays the insurance investigator who falls for the bad guy. You can take or leave the story, but, certainly, the style is something else, though the split screens don't work well on TV all that effectively.


A bored millionaire masterminds a bank robbery, only to find himself pursued by a glamorous insurance investigator determined to prove his guilt. It is not long before they get embroiled in a passionate affair - but conflicting interests mean they can never really trust one another. Crime drama, starring Steve McQueen, Faye Dunaway, Paul Burke and Yaphet Kotto.
