Days of Heaven (1978)

Days of Heaven-if you haven't seen this movie you are missing out-so beautifully filmed, so romantic.


"Let's play something else": Faye Dunaway & Steve McQueen explore the erotic possibilities of chess in The Thomas Crown Affair (1968, dir. Norman Jewison). The movie’s major romantic scene takes place over a chessboard. “Do you play?” Crown asks. “Try me,” she answers. After those two sentences, the script had a three-word description about what should follow: “Chess with sex.” No dialogue, just a man and a woman, a chessboard, chess pieces, and a charge of sexual tension.
