    It was based on a famous TV show from the 1960s where the guy who actually killed Kimball’s wife was known as “The One-Armed Man,” so it seems like this particular movie is a strange one to object to on that front.

      That just makes it more deeply engrained.

        Does it? Or is this just an adaptation of an old TV show that wouldn’t make sense or please the audience if they changed it?

        Are any one-armed people actually offended by the movie? If you aren’t one-armed yourself, have you asked any of them?

        This is the weirdest hill to die on- complaining about the portrayal of a man with one arm in a 1990s adaptation of a 1960s TV show as if it is somehow relevant to films in 2024.
