One-Armed Manhandled

For a man who has only one arm
He's managed a whole lot of harm
Both nasty and cruel,
He was fast-tracked at school --
Though it can't be l'ecole de la charm.

Bill Raisch as the "one-armed man", with David Janssen and Diane Brewster as Richard and Helen Kimble. From Wikepedia: A dancer who worked for the Ziegfeld Follies in the 1930s, Raisch lost his right arm while serving in the US Navy during World War II. His most memorable film role was in a famous fight scene with Kirk Douglas in Lonely are the Brave.   Famous, that is, on Fugitive Fridays
