Interesting trivia I just learned about Faye. Evidently when she was cast in The Thomas Crown Affair she was virtually unknown to the public. She had already done Bonnie and Clyde but that film had not been released yet. However, there was an industry buzz about her and so the director of The Thomas Crown Affair asked the Bonnie and Clyde people to see footage of Faye's performance. He was so smitten by her that he hired her for the Thomas Crown Affair without a live audition.
The famous chess scene in Thomas Crown took 3 whole days to shoot. The steamy kiss afterward took one additional full day. I'd love to spend a day making out with Steve McQueen.
Faye COMPLETELY TURNS IT OUT in The Thomas Crown Affair, btw. Her outfits, wigs and eye makeup are treasure box vintage late 60s.
