Trivia: The large delivery truck that almost hits Thomas Crown at the very beginning, as he walks across the street to the museum, is actually the same truck that is carrying his "Trojan horse" to the museum. The driver and license plate are the same (PB9975). In line with the theme and use of the Greek "Trojan Horse" is also the idea of a Greek tragedy; that he (Crown) would be killed by the very truck he hired to carry out his heist; felled by the very events he put into motion. An important part of Greek tragedy is hubris which is shown prominently in Thomas Crown. (00:02:45 - 00:05:10)
Trivia: The actual glider used in the movie was a "Duo-Discus x" manufactured by Schempp-hirth and was the personal plane of millionaire Richard S. DuPont. The gliders sold new in 1999 (when the movie was made) for about $100,000. The DuPonts, besides being chemical giants, were pioneers in American gliding. (01:06:00)
