Best Faye Dunaway Movies


Faye Dunaway is my favourite movie actress of the 1970’s. In the tradition of Hollywood stars like Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, Dunaway gave commanding performances on the screen in some memorable roles. Through some bad choices in the 1980’s, her movie career lost its momentum. Now she mostly makes guest appearances on television. Dunaway received her Academy Award for Best Actress in 1977.

In order, here are my favourite Faye Dunaway movies:

  1. Chinatown (1974)
  2. Network (1976)
  3. Bonnie and Clyde (1967)
  4. The Thomas Crown Affair (1968)
  5. Three Days of the Condor (1975)
  6. The Towering Inferno (1974)
  7. The Three Musketeers (1973)
  8. The Four Musketeers (1974)
  9. Little Big Man (1970)
  10. Barfly (1987)
  11. Eyes of Laura Mars (1978)
  12. Mommie Dearest (1981) 
Favourite Faye Dunaway quotes:
  • It’s true, I did a lot of great movies, and I’m happy. It was what it was, and now I think all of that has fed into where I am now, and I think it has taught me a lot. 
  • Since Star Wars, that film’s success led to bigger budgets, more hardware, that the great movies like the ones I did, which were studio movies, are now independent movies. They range from half a million to several million, and a lot of those have very interesting roles.

  1. I’d forgotten about Faye Dunaway’s performance in the original Thomas Crown Affair. Great performance in a great film–really captured a mood–and a time!
