Cool Hand Luke MOTM on the Lambcast

They let me play in the Prison Yard for this one.

I've always had a problem with COOL HAND LUKE. I never could get past the fact that Newman's character is sentenced to a maximum security prison for the mere crime of busing up parking meters. Or was there something else I missed?

It's really just a prison farm. There would be no road crew for killers. I don't think anyone there was doing hard time for murder or any of those kinds of crimes. It is set in the 50s and in Georgia, where they don't have much sense of humor about even minor crimes.
