The Thomas Crown affair by Norman Jewison( Visual )

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?

Filmed on location in France with over 45 international racing stars, this high-adrenaline film provides a fascinating look at the extraordinary cars and unique personalities drawn to the thrill of this high-risk sport.

Nevada Smith by Henry Hathaway( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nevada Smith is a rugged innocent boy born in the 1890's during California's gold rush days to an Indian mother and white father. When he finds his parents have been murdered by vicious killers, he sets out to track them down. While the film is a western, and has plenty of action, it is also a powerful and revealing study of the regeneration of a man, in this case a lone gunslinger who is so blinded by this compulsion that it obscures any other motive for living. Steve McQueen's dynamic presence as Nevada Smith is memorable
