A look at tightrope walker Philippe Petit's daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York City's World Trade Center's twin towers in 1974, what some consider, "the artistic crime of the century".
After Philippe Petit and his compatriots are taken into custody, they are processed by the police. The phrase "MAN ON WIRE" is entered on one of the forms used to document the incident.
If I die, what a beautiful death!
In the reenaction of Philippe Petit and his friend hiding from the night watchman at the WTC, a box on the floor has a present-day USPS logo.
