Paul Newman stars as a prisoner who stands up to the brutal regime of a Florida chain gang in this famous and much-acclaimed 1967 drama. After being convicted for a drunken night of destroying parking meters, Luke (played by Newman) refuses to serve out his sentence quietly. His rebellious nature earns him the respect of his fellow inmates - but also the special attention of those in charge, who are intent on breaking his spirit. Star Newman produced possibly his best work during the 1960s, and he's at his most charismatic here, playing an underdog battling the odds.
