Movie Clip Wednesdays: Favorite Detective Movie

Dear God,

In my next life, please send me back as Faye Dunaway in The Thomas Crowne Affair.

That is all.


Sexy, stylish, suspenseful, and smart.

Drop by the blog of our ever-faithful host, Milk River Madman, to see who else is playing this week:

My sister built a Steve McQueen shrine well before he died. I wonder if any of that stuff is valuable?

K9 said...

yeah i can live with steve mcqueen too. I actually liked the remake with rene russo too but my sisters nearly slayed me for uttering such sacrelige. anyhoo - its a good movie.

happy MCW!

my entry is here

I didn't know there were two versions though I'm not surprised. There is this version that I haven't seen. McQueen is ultra-cool. This version is probably well written, well acted and entertaining.

Then there's the version with Rene Russo topless. Advantage version two.

Happy MCW.

I liked the remake too, but there's nothing better than Faye Dunaway and Steve McQueen together. Great pick. Happy MCW!

Troll: Only if she shrined the car from Bullit.

K9: I don't have anything against the remake, either. But the original is more . . . muscular.

MRM: Boobs win out every time, I've learned.

Boxer: I've been a fan of Rene Russo from her modeling days. Stunning woman, but doesn't have that icy, Nordic princess edge that Dunaway had. P. Brosnan of course is hella elegant, but this isn't my favorite movie of his. That would go to The Matador, a highly underrated black comedy.

Pam said...

A very excellent choice. And the Rene Russo character in the re-make with Pierce Brosnan not so bad either! Steve McQueen ... manly in the best possible way.

Karl said...

Good afternoon Moi,

I remember liking this movie, likely because I thought Faye Dunaway was hot in Bonnie and Clyde and I like anything with Steve McQueen in it. I don't really remember much else about the movie, it's been so many years since I've seen it.

I didn't know who Rene Russo was. Now I can tell you if you Google "Rene Russo topless" you will get all sorts of interesting links. I just figured some of your readers might want to know that.

Happy clip day!

Heff said...

Now "Bullit" was Badassed, I'll give you THAT.

Princess said...

Steve Mc Queen. Mmmmm....
Thanks Moi

Buzz Kill said...

I've not seen either version of this movie, but Steve Mcqueen was one of the coolest men - ever (next to Heff).

Happy MCW!

moi said...

Pam: If God doesn't send me back as Faye Dunaway, I'll ask for Rene Russo.

Karl: You Googler, you.

Heff: Longest car chase in the history of the universe but I didn't mind.

Princess: You're welcome. Any day I can spread an "mmmmmmm" is a good day.

Buzz: He managed to be both cool as a cucumber and hot as a tamale. Not easy to do.

Oh, yes, nicely done! :)
