Yesterday I saw Double Indemnity (I've been waiting for that film for so long!) and the scene where Fred MacMurry's character is posing as the husband of Barbara Stanwyck's character (who has been killed) is walking through the train carriage, on the left there is a woman who is knitting away happily.

I saw that years ago. Back when I wouldn't have noticed the knitting! I'll have to watch for it on the old movie channel. If I remember right, I thought it was good.

I don't have a problem with authority, I just have a problem with people telling me what to do.

There is also a great dialogue sequence in that movie about knitting:

Phyllis: He has a lot on his mind. He doesn't seem to want to listen to anything except maybe a baseball game on the radio. Sometimes we sit here all evening and never say a word to each other.
Walter: Sounds pretty dull.
Phyllis: So I just sit and knit.
Walter: Is that what you married him for?
Phyllis: Maybe I like the way his thumbs hold up the wool.
Walter: Anytime his thumbs get tired. Only with me around, you wouldn't have to knit.
Phyllis: Wouldn't I?
Walter: You bet your life you wouldn't.

(Thank you, filmsite.org!)

If you watch a lot of Bette Davis films, you'll get to see her knitting, and even crocheting in some of those older movies.

These days, you do see someone knitting in some movie. Wallace and Gromitt comes to mind!
