An evening with renowned screenwriter Alan Trustman

December 1, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Alan Trustman is an American lawyer, currency trader, and pari-mutuel operator, but he is undoubtedly best known as the screenwriter of The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt, and They Call Me Mr. Tibbs! Written in 1967, The Thomas Crown Affair was his first screenplay.

Some years earlier, Trustman’s law office had overlooked the First National Bank of Boston, and from this vantage point, he observed the bank procedures that led to his screenplay about a business tycoon who commits the perfect crime.

The 1968 film details the elaborate robbery and the actions of the insurance adjuster, played by Faye Dunaway, who unravels the crime only to fall in love with the millionaire miscreant, played by Steve McQueen. The Thomas Crown Affair was immediately followed by Trustman’s success with Bullitt, another film starring McQueen, which grossed a then- impressive $62 million. The New York Times placed the film on its 2004 list of The Best 1,000 Movies Ever Made.
