Film: Cool Hand Luke

Luke Jackson, natural born world shaker, someone with more guts than brains, a man who refuses to conform to the rules he has been given. Sent to a prison camp for a misdemeanor Luke soon gains respect and becomes an idol. The prisoners admire Luke because, as Dragline explains it, “You’re an original, that’s what you are!” 

His repeated escapes from the chain-gang infuriate the camp bosses, will they ever break him ?


Cool Hand Luke is a true classic in every sense of the word. It is a film that will long be remembered.
