COOL HAND LUKE
August 19, 2014  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 5:45 p.m. ET

 
Today is Paul Newman day on TCM, and one of the best Newman movies on its lineup is this 1967 film, in which Newman plays a convict determined not to conform, even when his clashes with a sadistic chain-gang overseer leads to a classic “failure to communicate.” I also feel compelled to point out one of my all-time favorites, 1969’s Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (at 10 p.m. ET), but another reason to point out this particular showing of Cool Hand Luke: Less than a week ago, another Luke was added to the global census. To paraphrase Darth Vader: "Luke, I am your grandfather!"
