  •  I thought it was Luke's "bosses" (4.00)
    that were telling him to get his mind right.

    But anyway, I know Dragline told him to stay down when they were fighting and Luke said, "you're gonna hafta kill me."

    That's us.  The Democrats.  You're gonna have to kill us.

      •  Yes, he fights Dragline (none)
        The reason I think it's the "bosses" i.e. the prison guards, or the warden, is because of the one that goes into the spiel about what we have here is a failure to communicate, I think they try to convince Luke the get his mind right for his own good.

        I love everything about the movie.  Many good lines.

        •  The Warden (none)
           is the man with no eyes?   I like the line because years ago it was like a mantra for me.

          •  I use the line as a mantra too (none)
            Even for silly stuff.  My Mom knows I love the movie, so it's a running gag when we do the NYTimes crossword puzzle together, getting your mind right. She can't stand the violence in Cool Hand, hates seeing Newman beat up like that.  But, I wence and watch.

            The warden is the guy who says things like "Get your mind right" and "What we have here is a failure to communicate." The Man With No Eyes is, IIRC, the head guard with the mirror shades.

            Man, it's been years since I've seen this movie.
