Dragline checks Luke's eggs capacity

Luke’s Dragline dies

George Kennedy, who won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in “Cool Hand Luke,” died Sunday in Boise, Idaho. He was 91.

He played a bear of a man who was sadistic chain gang prisoner Dragline.

My favorite scene is when Paul Newman (“Luke”) ate a zillion boiled eggs while Dragline egged him on admiringly. The photo above captures a pause in Luke's venture.

Kennedy had been in failing health since the death of his wife Joan about a year ago, and had been in hospice care for a month.

Kennedy’s film credits also included “The Dirty Dozen,” the “Airport” movies, “The Naked Gun” and the disaster film “Earthquake.”
