AZTEC, New Mexico – It’s a case of life imitating art – or at least a Paul Newman movie. A judge in New Mexico has ordered two inmates to watch the Newman classic “Cool Hand Luke.”

The inmates are accused of walking away from a work detail. In the film, Newman repeatedly escapes from a chain gang and is ultimately killed by guards.

Dalet Flores and Raymond Holguin only had days to serve when they allegedly escaped. Now, each faces an additional five years.

I dunno about you but I think the judge missed the whole point of “Cool Hand Luke” which was IMHO the role Newman should have won an Oscar for. I included this cuz “Cool Hand Luke” is one of my all time favorite movies.
