Cool Hand Luke 1967

After a drunken spree, happy-go-lucky Luke Jackson is sentenced to two years on a chain gang. The administrators of the road gang to which he is sent are cynical, brutal and totally dedicated to quenching any spark of spirit in the prisoners. But Luke's habit of never giving up is soon to make him into a legend.
