Sat next to his wife Revel Wurman, Kennedy describes his immediate reaction to winning the Oscar for his role as the pugnacious convict Dragline in 'Cool Hand Luke' and reflects on whether an actor's cumulative body of work influences the outcome of these awards in a particular year. Ends with brief silent views of Kennedy speaking with Mann and a close up shot of his Oscar statuette. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
