Even if a useless ’90s remake – in which a not so bad Pierce Brosnan acts in original McQueen role – tried to tarnish the title’s reputation. Even if, “The Thomas Crown Affair” stands as probably the best movie in history if you are a gentleman with a taste for exclusive luxury cars, a well tailored suit, glamour locations. And Faye Dunaway. Directed in 1968 by Norman Jewison, it tells about a rich american tycoon, Steve himself, that sets up a robbery just for …the fun of it . And who is the insurance investigator taking care of the affair? Faye Dunaway, of course. Does your insurer look like her?
