The Ratcheting Hand

Pretty sure it is a movie. as I have seen it several times in my life, but all I really remember is one specific character.  It’s a man, wearing a gray coat with black gloves and he has a false hand in one of the black gloves.  He has to keep rotating the hand at the wrist to get it where he want, and it makes a sound similar to a ratchet.


I’m going to feel like half a mook when someone else solves this, but it has been bugging me (and my wife) for a few days.

Thank you in advance.
