1967 | NR | Run time: 2 hr 6 min

Directed by: Stuart Rosenberg
Starring: Paul Newman, George Kennedy, J.D. Cannon

His crime: nonconformity. His sentence: the chain gang. Paul Newman plays one of his best-loved roles as COOL HAND LUKE, the loner who won't -- or can't -- bend to the arbitrary rules of his captivity. A cast of fine character actors, including George Kennedy in his Oscar-winning role of Dragline and the indelible Jo Van Fleet as Luke's mother, give Newman solid support.

And Strother Martin is the Captain who taunts Luke with the now-legendary line, "What we've got here is...failure to communicate." No failure here. With rich humor and vibrant storytelling power, COOL HAND LUKE succeeds resoundingly.
