Paul Newman "Cool Hand Luke"

<b>“Cool Hand Luke”</b><br>
Newman gives one of his most personable performances — he received his fourth Oscar nomination — in this 1967 drama as the free-spirited Luke Jackson, a convict who more than meets his match when he is sent to work on a chain-gang. As Luke, Newman gets to play it all in this gripping drama, including high comedy in the egg-eating contest scene and high emotions in the scene in which he learns of his mother’s death. It’s a lovely performance, which was overshadowed at the time by George Kennedy’s Academy Award-winning turn as the leader of the chain gang who becomes friends with Luke.
