Costumes, robberies and art-forgery

Dear followers:

The Thomas Crown Affair is a film about a gambit, robbery and art-forgery of a Claude Monet painting. Launched in 1968 performed by  Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway. Theadora Van Runkle, let her genius as costume designer for this first movie. Here are some sketches.

In 1999 appeared a remake by Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo.

In 1968 the wonderful theme composed by the exquisite Michel Legrand ‘The windmills of your mind’ won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. In the remake movie, appears an interesting version sung by Sting.

If you try to sing it maybe you will know how hypnotizing it is. Some wonderful words of its lyrics are:

‘Lovers walk along a shore and leave their footprints in the sand… and the world is like an apple whirling silently in space’.

Let’s dream!
