“Sometimes Nothin Can Be A Real Cool Hand!”

What you got here is a failure to communicate,” the captain once said. This video below is an iconic scene in movie history. The guy in the video is a real “cool hand” person; his name is Cool Hand Luke.

In the movie COOL HAND LUKE, Paul Newman elicited one of my favorite mottos about having “a real cool hand.” He was nominated for the 1968 best actor Oscar for his role, but lost to Rod Steiger for the movie IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT. Newman won 3 Oscars (1986, 1987, 1994), but COOL HAND LUKE is my personal favorite of his characters.

What did you do for Valentine’s day?

Maria Bello is one of my favorite actresses. Her movie THE COOLER is among my list of favorite movies which I can view and enjoy more than once on an occasional basis.


Oh, Lady Justice. The Republicans and haters are abusing you worst than in our country’s whole history. Will any heroes come along to stand tall for justice and righteousness?

Sometimes “nothing” can be a real cool hand. Do you “get it”? Sometimes what is more important is the way you play your hand. I kinda’ like that quote. I am often at social affairs where some of the attendees think that they are so “up there,” so important and above the fray that they are god-like. Meanwhile, little ol’ me might be holding no cards of value (nothing) at the scene; but I am ultimately the one holding the winning, real cool hand in the end. Now that I explained the “cool hand” a little bit more, I re-posted the video here.
