Cool Hand Luke

A FILM BY: Stuart Rosenberg
WRITTEN BY: Donn Pearce, Frank Pierson
STARRING: Paul Newman, George Kennedy, Strother Martin

When petty criminal Luke Jackson (Paul Newman) is sentenced to two years in a Florida prison farm, he doesn’t play by the rules of either the sadistic warden (Strother Martin) or the yard’s resident heavy, Dragline (George Kennedy), who ends up admiring the new guy’s unbreakable will. Luke’s bravado, even in the face of repeated stints in the prison’s dreaded solitary confinement cell, “the box,” make him a rebel hero to his fellow convicts and a thorn in the side of the prison officers.
