"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.
