Following its release in 1967, Cool Hand Luke cemented Paul Newman in cinematic history and made him one of the most recognizable faces of the decade. Newman stars as a convict who refuses to conform to the expectations of his prison guards, a message that resonated with the anti-authoritarian themes of many American films throughout the Vietnam War. Newman was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor, and George Kennedy won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Contains mature content, including violence and strong language.
