The one-minute kissing sequence between the two leads took eight hours to film over a number of days. This film was directed and produced by Norman Jewison, and stars Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway. There is great on-screen chemistry between McQueen and Dunaway. McQueen plays the charming business man Thomas Crown, who thinks that he has accomplished the perfect multi-million dollar robbery, until he meets Vicki Anderson (insurance investigator), played by Dunaway, who has been employed to investigate the robbery. Here he has certainly met his match. The film won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for 'The Windmills of Your Mind' by Michel Legrand (music), Marilyn Bergman and Alan Bergman (lyrics). Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway star in one of the sexiest heist films of all cinema. McQueen is millionaire Thomas Crown, who robs a bank just for fun with investigator Vicki Anderson (Dunaway) hot on his trail. This poster depicts what is arguably the greatest kiss ever filmed. The photography is unusual for a mainstream Hollywood film, using a split-screen mode. McQueen undertook his own stunts (playing polo) and driving a dune buggy at high speed along the Massachusetts coastline. And of all the films that Steve McQueen made in his career, this is reported to have been his favourite.
