Plot Summary

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There are a lot of good things. – Renata Adler, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: The Norman Jewison film tells a crackerjack story, well-tooled, professionally crafted and fashioned with obvious meticulous care. – Variety Staff, Variety, May 8, 2013

Rotten: Possibly the most under-plotted, underwritten, over-photographed film of the year. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: It's worth noting that 30 years and dozens of caper films later, the closing twist isn't nearly as startling as it once was, but it still makes for an effective conclusion. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jun 24, 2010

The Original...

I love this original version of the Thomas Crawn Affair. Steve McQueen was a great actor and a favorite of my Father. Get this version and then get the newer version. Most people tend to like the 'original version' they see over the newer re-makes; but get both and decide for yourself.

EXCELLENT Shots

The credits, the layout of scenes on the screen... It's well done. See? Faye Dunaway was quite gorgeous. This movie also has THE MAN in it...STEVE MCQUEEN! The ultimate leading man who was also a man's man! Not a pretty boy... Not a frou-frou... The original has a cooler ending. This is why it was neat to see Dunaway in the remake. Her outfits are too cool in this film. Sit back--and enjoy the ride!

excellent!

I love the music in this film. Drastically different storyline from the latest, but filmed and told in a unique and brilliant way. I don't remember any reason for the R rating, it's a fairly clean film. It is best when watched without any comparison to the newer version. A classic movie that deserves at least one viewing by every movie lover.
