Jay J Armes

The guy in the middle is the famous and pioneering American private investigator Jay J Armes, who lost both his hands in an explosives accident as a kid. He learned to use those hooks they gave him and became immensely successful and wealthy. He’s the guy who rescued Marlon Brando’s son from kidnappers. I mean, this guy once had his own action figure (my little brother owned it). I read his co-authored memoir, many years ago. Amazing person.

All that said: isn’t this a really fucking disturbing picture?
