1. How to Steal a Million (1966)
Starring: Audrey Hepburn & Peter O’Toole
Best museum heist movie of all time!
2. Topkapi (1964)
Starring: Melina Mercouri & Peter Ustinov (super handsome!)
I’ve been to the museum and seen the dagger! I didn’t steal it though.
Starring: Robert Redford, George Segal
I’ve been to Brooklyn Museum many times and they don’t show precious gems, but this is an amazing movie. So good!!!
4. The Thomas Crown Affair (1997)
Starring: Pierce Brosnan, Rene Russo, Denis Leary
Rene Russo caused a splash by appearing nude as a woman over 40 years old. She looked fantastic. This shouldn’t be a surprise, nor should it have been “scandalous.”
5. The Thomas Crown Affair (1968)
Starring: Steve McQueen, Faye Dunaway
Hot. Hot. Hot! (Hot.)
6. The Score (2001)
Starring: Robert De Niro, Edward Norton, Marlon Brando (!)
7. Entrapment (1999)Starring: Sean Connery, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Ving Rhames
8. F is for Fake (1973)
Starring: Orson Welles, Oja Kodar, Joseph Cotten
Watch the WHOLE thing on YouTube!!! Orson Welles!!!
9. Conformist (1970) — Musee D’Orsay when it was a train station
10. DaVinci Code (2006)
Starring: Hanksy Panksy
I guess you’ve got to include it. Not utterly horrible.
11. Once a Thief (1965) Not sure if there’s really a museum in this. Gotta watch it. Looks great.
