Have fun with friends and family competing to see who can draw more parallels between One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Cool Hand Luke! Great parlor game! Not as good as twister, but better than charades. Play it at your upcoming Thanksgiving get-together!

Well, Razor, since Kesey's book was published in 1962, and Pearce published HIS in '65, we can only surmise that the similarities in both stories are coincedental. Pearce had the actual experience of being in a chain-gang, and Kesey worked as a mental ward orderly for a time. Since Kesey's book came first, you could claim Pearce got inspiration from it, but I don't think that would be true. I'm thinking each other's experiences were the main muse, and the similarities prove that great minds think alike.

So no one wants to give it a shot? Well, letssee. . . .

 

1. A nonconformist, anti-establishment type. . . .

2. confined in dehumanizing circumstances. . . .

3. with more or less overt Christ-figure associations. . .

4. opposed to a sadistic, tyrannical authority figure. . . .

5. becomes the charismatic leader of his fellow confinees. . . .

6. inspires them to grow beyond their self-imposed limitations. . . .

7. watches a voluptuous babe wash a car in a thin cotton dress--the babe, not the car (oh, wait,

that was only in one movie). . . .

8. undergoes exquisite torture at the hands of the authority to break his spirit. . . .

9. escapes for a while. . . .

10. but returns. . . .

11. fatally. . . .
