Right Hand/Left Hand

Posted by Shacheendra on March 07, 2003

In "The Sweet Smell of Success", J. J. Hunsecker (Burt Lancaster) says to Sidney Falco (Tony Curtis), "My right hand hasn't seen my left hand in thirty years." Any idea what this claim might mean? It has been puzzling me for years.

Well, thanks in advance for any ideas.
