The Thomas Crown Affair

I just watched The Thomas Crown Affair on Monday (the 1968 Norman Jewison version), which landed on two stylish films lists recently (LA Times and Turner Classic Movies).  Sleek women like Lauren Santo Domingo refer to it as their sartorial inspiration. But I didn’t realize that it was set and filmed in Boston-it’s cool to see popular sites like the State House, Beacon Hill, Boston Common, Mt. Auburn Cemetary, and Crane’s Beach, among others.  It’s also available at Snell, so you can rent it and pick out your own favorite location (or outfit).   I think mine are their stroll by the Charles River, the Polo Scene at Myopia Hunt Club, Steve McQueen’s riding outfit, and Faye Dunaway’s dress.
