In 1974, French high wire artist Philippe Petit snuck to the top of the World Trade Center and crossed a wire between the two World Trade Center towers. It’s been called the greatest high wire walk in history. He’s the subject of a new documentary, "Man on Wire," by James Marsh. It opens today, Friday 7/25, at the Landmark Sunshine and Lincoln Plaza Cinemas.
