Brilliantly crafted by the Oscar-nominated director of Moonstruck, and starring Steve McQueen (The Great Escape) and Faye Dunaway (Network), this “well-tooled and professionally crafted” (Variety) suspense thriller has all the dazzling personality of the intriguing crime it portrays.

Boston tycoon Thomas Crown (McQueen) masterminds a daring bank job simply for the thrill of the heist. But he meets his match when insurance investigator Vicky Anderson (Dunaway) takes the case. Playing a seductive game of cat and mouse, she tries to get her man by teasing him with the one thing he can’t own – her.

“[A] highly enjoyable movie.”

– Renata Adler, New York Times

“It is a flashy, undemanding technical achievement, enhanced by the marquee power of Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway.”

– John Mahoney, Hollywood Reporter
