"What we've got here is a failure to communicate..."

Cool Hand Luke

Warner Bros. - Seven Arts / 1967

In an Oscar nominated performance, Paul Newman’s Lucas “Luke” Jackson is the archetypal 60’s anti-hero who defiantly takes on his fellow prisoners and prison officials alike. “What we have here is failure to communicate” sums up the frustrated warden’s view of Luke’s many attempts to escape the chain gang and defy punishment. Gritty cinematography by Conrad Hall captures a grueling existence populated by a cast of both established stars and those in the making.
