It had all the glamor, conspiracy, and danger of a classic heist movie, but it was real –- and the hero was wearing slippers. Philippe Petit’s unauthorized walk on a high wire between the World Trade Center towers transfixed the world in 1974, and it’s the subject of the 2008 documentary "Man on Wire." Kurt visits the site of the walk (now Ground Zero) with Petit and director James Marsh.
