Cool Hand Luke and Harper

(Sunday 28 September 2008)


In the late 60s, Warner Brothers recreated their 40s golden era in 'Cool Hand Luke' and 'Harper' with Paul Newman in the lead.  Cool Hand Luke attacks the prison system big guys but not the convicts he bunks with, and in Harper, Newman based his characterisation on John F Kennedy.  RIP Paul, the "winner who comes on like a loser"  (Micheal Caine, about himself in Harry Palmer, another cool 60s dude.)
