In the original cataloguing Neile McQueen Toffel comments: "This pair of brandy snifters were used in 'the Thomas Crown Affair'. You can see them very clearly in the film in the hands of Steve and Faye Dunaway, just prior to the big kissing scene. Steve had a habit of walking off the set with something he liked. He'd come home and say "Hey honey - look what I brought you!""
