The new warden of a small prison farm in Arkansas tries to clean it up of corruption after initially posing as an inmate.
Robert Redford was offered three million dollars to play the role of Brubaker.
Let's just take a little bit off around the ears.
Barber: Costs five to get you no haircut now, Zaranska. Two only gets you a crew-cut.
Zaranska: Fuck, I could use this on a bed.
Barber: It'll all come off then. Maybe an ear with it.
Barber: What's it be, my man?
Henry Brubaker: Leave the ears.
As Warden Renfro leaves, he tells Brubaker, "Smartest thing you ever did was come in here incognizant; dumbest was steppin' forward." The term is "incogNITO", which means unknown or unrecognizable. "Incognizant" means unknowledgeable or ignorant.
