It’s my favourite Paul Newman film and one of his finest. It’s got more heart than almost any other movie I can think of. Once you’ve seen it, the story and images stay with you forever.
Don’t miss this classic. You don’t just get Paul Newman; there’s George Kennedy in a supporting role which won him his only Oscar. There are Dennis Hopper and Harry Dean Stanton in early feature film roles. And there is the rest of the absolutely superb supporting cast.
Cool Hand Luke: One of my all-time favourites.
