I’m am very late with June’s pick for the Movie Watching Group (MWG). After reading an Entertainment Weekly issue that went through all of Paul Newman’s movies, Cool Hand Luke sounded like the most interesting one I had not seen. I also liked when I heard that Dr. Cox in Scrubs would rub his finger on his nose at least once an episode like the main character in the movie. It is a classic I have never seen!
Netflix Synopsis: What we have here is a failure to communicate! Lucas Jackson (Paul Newman) is a man who likes to do things his own way. That leads to a world of hurt when he winds up in a hellish Southern prison camp — and on the wrong side of a sadistic warden (Strother Martin). George Kennedy won an Oscar as a fellow prisoner who tries to break Luke and then comes to revere him. The stellar cast includes Dennis Hopper, Harry Dean Stanton and Joe Don Baker.
