Cool Hand Luke Movie Summary

Luke likes cutting the heads off of parking meters. Luke doesn’t like going to prison. This becomes a problem when they send Luke to prison for cutting the heads off parking meters.

At first the prisoners are skeptical of Luke and his irresistible good looks and imperturbable equanimity. But he wins them over by fighting Dragline, played by George Kennedy, and losing horribly. Dragline knocks Luke to the ground time and time again, but Luke can’t stay down. After that, Luke becomes a folk hero to the prisoners.

Luke spends his time in prison well. He motivates the prisoners as they work on the chain gang. Plays cards. Eats 50 eggs. Smiles. Never tries to rape anyone. All the stuff you’d expect from a people’s hero in the slammer. But this changes when Luke’s mother dies. The screeching bumpkin warden warns Luke not to run and throws him in the hole just to show him who’s boss.
