Cary Grant in Mr. Lucky, 1943: Watching Him Think ........and Knit


In order to help with war relief, Cary Grant is taught how to knit by a little old woman in the war relief offices. He has no patience with the process. He is also mortified to be knitting. He cannott even bear to hold the knitting needles. His mortification makes him angry.

But then, as he starts to get good at it, he becomes obsessed. He knits in cabs, he knits on the street. Humor: His casually oblivious face, serious, intent, his fingers flying back and forth, suddenly exclaiming at one point, “ I dropped a stitch!” 
