Popcorn Chic-The Thomas Crown Affair,1968

"You do live very well don't you?"

"No complaints"-Thomas Crown

This week I ran across an article celebrating Faye Dunaway's 70th birthday.  Included of course were images from her role in director Norman Jewison's  The Thomas Crown Affair, 1968 .  A sparkling sexy and stylish film about a bored playboy millionaire who lives for the thrill, an uncharacteristic but yummy role for Steve McQueen. Thomas Crown pulls off a bank heist and the banks' insurance investigator, Faye Dunaway, goes after her man. 

 McQueen and Dunaway have a chemistry that film legend is made of , the air simply crackles between them.

 Their chess game is perhaps the most talked about scene but for me it is their early morning stroll on Beacon Hill.

 Go for the story, and Steve's eyes of course, but stay for the style...and of course the clothes
