Double Feature: THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR, 1968, Park Circus, 102 min. Dir. Norman Jewison. One of our favorite guilty pleasures from the 1960s: Steve McQueen stars as bachelor supremo Thomas Crown, who’s just pulled off the perfect multimillion-dollar bank heist - until he runs into mondo-chic insurance investigator Faye Dunaway, who can’t decide whether she wants to make love to him or throw him in the slammer! Features some of the grooviest split-screen images ever, courtesy of director Jewison and co-editor Hal Ashby, with beautiful cinematography by Haskell Wexler. [35mm]
THE GETAWAY, 1972, Warner Bros., 122 min. Director Sam Peckinpah adapts writer Jim Thompson’s savage pulp classic with tightly wound Steve McQueen as escaped bank robber Doc McCoy. To spring him from the joint, devoted wife Ali McGraw enlists the help of corrupt fat-cat Ben Johnson, who wants McCoy to execute a seemingly impossible robbery. Al Lettieri is the memorably sleazy killer who dogs the couple’s trail after thieves fall out. [Blu Ray]
