The Thomas Crown affair by Norman Jewison( Visual )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Crown is a rich, well-educated Boston businessman. He's very good at what he does, but business is apparently no longer enough of a challenge for him--he's bored to within an inch of his life. So Crown has adopted an interesting hobby--he robs banks. He robs banks with such intricate, elaborate, Rube Goldberg-esque plans that it is impossible to trace anything back to him. His sole pleasure in life is getting away with it all. Needless to say, neither the banks nor the Boston police appreciate Crown's hobby. Nor do the banks' insurers, who have to pay for it all. After the latest such, the insurance company brings in their big gun: investigator Vickie Anderson. She quickly homes in on Crown as the only person capable being the ringleader. She knows he did it. He knows he did it. We know he did it. But will she be able to prove he did it before he flees the country--and before she falls in love with him?

Trama: Joe Gastineau è stato un giovane campione di basket universitario, ora vive in Alaska facendo lavori saltuari. Joe è stato anche pescatore, ma un incidente ha fatto sì che due membri del suo equipaggio, alcuni anni prima, siano morti nel sonno a causa dell'affondamento dell'imbarcazione. Durante un party di nozze al quale sta lavorando, Joe incontra Donna, una cantante non più giovane che ha appena interrotto la relazione con un membro del suo gruppo musicale. Donna ha una figlia adolescente, Noelle, collega di Joe, con cui non ha un rapporto facile a causa della sua condotta di vita irregolare. Joe e Donna cominciano a frequentarsi e si innamorano, ma quando comunicanicano il nuovo legame a Noelle provoca nella ragazza un contraccolpo perché questa si era invaghita di Joe. Egli, intanto, dopo che per anni si era lacerato nel senso di colpa per l'incidente occorso ai suoi colleghi, accetta di svolgere nuovamente l'attività di pescatore. In città arriva però Bobby, il fratellastro di Joe, che gli chiede di accompagnarlo in una gita in barca. Il reale motivo della gita, alla quale partecipano anche Donna e Noelle, è di entrare in contatto con dei trafficanti di droga. Questi, una volta accostata l'imbarcazione, uccidono Bobby che avrebbe dovuto consegnar loro una partita di hashish della quale non è più in possesso, e costringono Joe, Donna e Noelle a fuggire per non fare la stessa fine. Il terzetto si ritrova quindi su un'isola disabitata, senza viveri, coltivando la speranza che sopraggiunga qualcuno che possa portarli in salvo. Dopo due settimane arriva con il suo aeroplano Jack Johannson, il quale però è stato pagato dai trafficanti per ritrovare il gruppo disperso. Jack, che è a corto di benzina ed ha la radio di bordo guasta, riparte promettendo di ritornare il giorno seguente per trarli in salvo, ma Joe non è così sicuro che la situazione possa accomodarsi semplicemente: Jack, infatti, è fratello di uno dei due membri dell'equipaggio che persero la vita nell'incidente di cui Joe si sente responsabile. Dopo qualche giorno si sente arrivare un aereo: è Jack che li porterà in salvo o sono gli uomini che intendono ucciderli?
