I would like it if people would think that beyond Newman, there's a spirit that takes action, a heart, and a talent that doesn't come from my blue eyes.
His performance as Luke Jackson in Cool Hand Luke
(1967) is ranked #30 on the American Film Institute's 100 Heroes & Villains.
While he played similar system-bucking, troubled young men as such near contemporaries as Marlon Brando
and James Dean
, Newman's characters were often more humorous, introspective and self-assured. Newman's character's conflicts were often ironic and (intentionally) borderline-absurd.
