YEAH, WELL — SOMETIMES NOTHIN’ CAN BE A REAL COOL HAND

Paul Newman as Cool Hand Luke

Cool Hand Luke, brother. Enough quotable anti-establishment mantras to ink an entire tattoo sleeve. Enough chambray & denim workwear to choke the toughest clothes horse.  It’s Sunday night, men.  You have a few hours still left to rebel before you punch your ticket and report to the man on Monday morning.

Can’t find your spine?  What? you left it at Starbucks, bro?  Pick up your shovel and let Lucas Jackson show you how to find it at the bottom of Boss Keans’ ditch.  Sometimes a man enters a fight with nothin’ but his will, and where he came from — and that can be a real cool hand. Watch and learn.

Any man who passes up– spends a night in the box.

  2. That Paul Newman was one cool, good-lookin’ motherfucker. If I can lead half the life he did, I’ll be a happy and fulfilled man.

  3. An excellent actor and an excellent movie. It’s hard to say who was cooler…Newman or McQueen. McQueen may have taken the cake on pure coolness, but it seems Newman had more developed acting chops. Then again, he had an additional number of years to work on his craft.

  4. That carwashing scene changed my life forever. That, Catherine Bach and the girls of Hee Haw made me what I am today: a guy who knows how to find the rare talent to photograph a girl and a car the right way…

  5. Some old movies feel old in a bad way.

    But this one still feels alive and magnetic. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched it though, and never from a style perspective. Hmm…

  6. I don’t care if it rains or freezes…long as I got my plastic jesus…riding on the dashboard of my car

    One of the best! I group this one with The Last Picture Show and Hud. All my friends, brother and I loved these. Shit, one of my friends named his son Hud.

  7. I show this film to my students (High School Sociology class). A fair number of girls do not get it, but a lot of the young guys are BLOWN AWAY. My boss probably hates it, but I think it inspires more thought than about anything else I do with them.

  8. “If you don’t post the Lucille car wash sequence, you spend a night in the box!” :)
    Great taste, Sir.

  10. Filmed in and around Stockton, California. The “jail” was located in what is now a public park given to the city by the Hammer family. I drove by the movie set many times during filming, and still think of the movie when I drive by the park almost daily.
