THEATRE Sundoy, November 12, 11-D Success - - Care In Handling Tired Subject fly FRIC ATKINS Time Drama Writer It would sooni an Impossibility that any film produrtion group could take a story about mm in a southern prison camp and make something beautiful. Except for some unfortunate niontajje effects that are anti-climactic at the end, "Cool Hand Luke" wiih Taul Newman is Just that a strangely beautiful roovie. I KNOW that segments of the population have had their fill of prison camp movies ever since the 1930s and that grimy Faul Muni film "I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang." But producer Gordon Carroll and director Stuart Rosenberg in "Cool Hand Luke" have worked this magic with careful casting of all roles and a story of man against the system that is a lulu. The beauty comes from the careful building of the individuals characters. One is a bully with a sense of responsibility who lords it over the others only because he is bigger; he can be cruel but never any more than any man that has to live up to the image of father. Another is an intellectual with disdain for emotion or heroics. Another is his own man who can't stomach rules, numbers, titles and is determined to remain aloof of it. Of course, he can't. This is the part played by Newman the title name, Cool Hand Luke, born through his successful bluffing at a game of poker. HIE FILM builds as an or-dinary story until Luke, with his unswerving stubbornness gains the respect of all the other inmates at the road gang camp. He gains more than respect. They take pride in him, and you can feel it developing the way they glance at him when they go by, the way they listen when he talks to the prison guards. He is speaking for them.

"Cool Hand Luke" what they would be, but for a meager spirit. So, they love him, as they love a part of their own body. He is theirs. And this affection is beautiful to see. Through careful camera work, Rosenberg tells the story simply and directly. (It was adapted from a novel by Donn Pierce who actually spent two years on a Florida road gang.) He builds tension with swinging scythes in the foreground of a rising sun on his color film. The men are honestly at labor and victim to the weather and weeds. The guards are calm, bored and just as much in prison as the convicts. The guards are ones that have the need of feeling superior to other humans, and they hide their doubts with dark glasses, cowboy hats, things that will cover their eyes. The warden, or captain, played by Strother Martin, has been at the job too long to gain pleasure. He simply wants peace. And his mind has come to accept the righteousness of thinking he is jus-tified in demanding obedience at any price.
