Cool Hand Luke (1967)

 Rated R because that’s just the swearing type of people we are.

The 77th Next 100 Project ‘cast gabs about Paul Newman and his chain-gang chums. The inscrutable Luke is a loner, a rebel, a masochist, a non-conformist and most definitely a Christ figure, but he also has that that Luke smile of his. This movie remains awesome. For some awesome java, go get some Sparkplug Coffee, then settle in for a hear-fest, Boss.

For The Record: “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn” was said by Clark Gable in Gone With The Wind. He is the top-billed actor, not Vivien Leigh.
