Filmed In Boston: "The Thomas Crown Affair" from 1968


"Thomas Crown Affair" scene shot on Acorn Street in Beacon Hill

Last night I watched "The Thomas Crown Affair" from 1968 which was filmed in Boston. I haven't seen this movie in years and it was a treat to see the City of Boston and surrounding areas star in this original production of this title.
