Cool Hand Luke (1967)

I should just let the poster speak for itself. One thing it would certainly say is that both Docs on Films girls will be re-watching this late '60s classic. The prison drama stars Young Paul Newman as a man who refuses to be institutionalized, and is an important text in defining the anti-establishment cinematic hero that was all over American cinema in the 1970s. There are, it seems, dozens of iconic lines and scenes in this film. Plus, did I mention Young Paul Newman??? I think we're both looking forward to revisiting and discussing this shared favorite.
