Don’t be fooled by the adjective in the title it has everything to do with Paul Newman and nothing to do with the temperature. In this 1967 film directed by Stuart Rosenberg, Paul Newman plays Luke Jackson, a man who gets two years in a Florida prison for cutting the tops off parking meters. In a scene that easily gives this movie the top honors on this list, Luke wins a bet by eating 50 hard-boiled eggs in an hour, winning adulation from the prisoners sweating it out in the Florida heat. But you don’t have to take our word for it. In the 1982 pilot episode of the classic comedy Cheers, Diane is waiting for her fiancé while the bar debates the sweatiest movie of all-time. “Alien! Buckets,” yells Norm; “Body Heat. Sweat city,” Cliff retorts. An unnamed patron suggests: “Ben Hur.” And when Diane’s fiancé returns, she says, “I’m so glad to see you. I’ve been sitting here listening to these men argue over the sweatiest movie ever made.” “Cool Hand Luke,” is his instant reply. The entire bar agrees. So do we.
