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?

America, America by Elia Kazan( Visual )

14 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the director's uncle, Avraam Elia Kazantzoglou's experiences as a young man, this film follows the chaotic events in the early life of Stavros Topouzoglou as he formulates a plan to escape Turkey and emigrate to the United States. While selling ice in their village in central Turkey, Stavros and an Armenian friend witness a Turkish mob attack their Armenian and Greek neighbors. As he tries to stop the killing taking place inside a Greek church, Stavros is arrested by the Turkish authorities. Disgusted by the oppression and the desperate poverty that he sees everywhere, Stavros begs his grandmother to give him the money he needs to travel to America. His grandmother refuses, but gives him a knife and tells him that if he is going to America this is what he will need. By the time Stavros reaches Istanbul where he hopes to sail for America, he is in a state of abject poverty. The young man works as a laborer on the docks of the city for months in order to save the money he needs to board a ship for New York. Kazan's voice over tells us that his uncle ultimately succeeded in emigrating to the United States and eventually brought his entire family with him. Elia Kazan's depiction of the oppression experienced by the Greek community of Cappadocia is remarkable not only for its authenticity, but for the almost documentary quality of its dramatic scenes. Stathis Giallelis, who appears in virtually every scene of the nearly three hour movie, prepared for the role for 18 months and learned English in the process. The twenty-two year old, who had never acted before when he was hired to play the role of Stavros in Kazan's film, won a Golden Globe for his performance. Kazan stated that he was inspired by films like "The Bicycle Thief" to use non-actors for this film
