  • Alert
    "His crime: nonconformity. His sentence: the chain gang. 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 Kennedy in his Oscar-winning role of Dragline and the indelible Van Fleet as Luke's mother, give Newman solid support. And Martin is the Captain who taunts Luke with the now-legendary line What we've got here is...a failure to communicate."
