About a week ago I ran across some interestingways to knot a tie, and I’ve been trying without success to do one of the knots. So it was a fortuitous coincidence that I saw the list of Youtube Film Noir Features in the NoirMOOC. Towards the top of the list is Crime Wave, a brilliant film by Andre de Toth starring Sterling Hayden. At first I thought he was a detective too busy to spend time tying his tie properly, but it soon became apparent that he is a tie artist who never does it the same way twice.
I had this from Netflix a few years ago, and I had been thinking about getting it again ever since I learned how to do animated GIFs. Because if anyone needs to be GIFfed, it’s Timothy Carey. He can steal a scene just by hanging out in the background.
