Just watching the original Thomas Crowne Affair (1968) with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway.
Great couple - apart from the obvious chemistry they generate on screen and the crime thriller theme it is a pleasure to watch from a Mod perspective.
The clothes are just perfect. The cars. The settings. The whole beautiful retro styling of the movie and incidental music - horns, hammond and strings - make it a wonderful aspirational Mod movie.
Got me thinking. What other movies, apart from the obvious (Quad is a given) portray the ideal Modernistic style? I mean the films Mods would have gone to see at the movies.
Ideas? The Sean Connery Bond movies for sure, then there is Blow up too, different but still on trend...
What do you think, you cool Mod people?
Game of chess anyone.... or a different game?
