An Oscar-nominated Paul Newman plays the ultimate rebel in this gritty, compelling prison drama. After a drunken spree, Luke Jackson is sentenced to two years on a brutal Florida chain gang. He refuses to accept the authority of his gaolers or the rigid pecking order among his fellow prisoners. Luke endures through physical hardship and psychological warfare in a stirring tribute to the unquenchable spirit of a Christ-like figure. An amazing cast includes an Oscar-winning George Kennedy, Jo Van Fleet, Dennis Hopper and a very large collection of hard-boiled eggs.
