Description by OLDIES.com:

Paul Newman is Hud, a man at odds with his father, tradition and himself. Hud's only interests are fighting, drinking, hot-rodding his Cadillac and womanizing. Melvyn Douglas is the father, an old-line cattle rancher, and Patricia Neal is the understanding and appealing housekeeper. Academy Awards went to Patricia Neal, Melvyn Douglas and James Wong Howe's brilliant cinematography.

Product Description:

Martin Ritt's HUD is an adaptation of Larry McMurtry's novel HORSEMAN, PASS BY, successfully transformed into an entertaining and ambitious contemporary Western. Set on a Texas ranch where Cadillacs, cattle, and transistor radios coexist uneasily, the film stars Paul Newman as the hedonistic, arrogant, and rebellious farmhand Hud Bannon. Hud is constantly at odds with his kind father Homer (Melvyn Douglas), who blames him for the death of his brother. Hud further strains their relationship when he begins taking his nephew out drinking and chasing women. But when it appears that Homer's herd of cattle may have contracted hoof-and-mouth disease, he asks his son's help and advice. Predictably, Homer and Hud disagree about what should be done with the cattle, so Hud tries to gain ownership of the ranch--which could mean taking away his father's sole possession and livelihood. Beautifully photographed, the film has a clean visual style, emphasizing both the open spaces of the Texan landscape and the Cadillacs and Dr. Pepper signs that adorn it. Patricia Neal won an oscar for her role, and Newman's performance gives the film its wit and considerable velocity; his character, Hud, is morally reprehensible but still likeable and charismatic, and he carries the film forward to its surprising and poignant ending.

Production Notes:

  • Originally released theatrically on May 29, 1963.
  • Filmed on location in Texas.
  • Paul Newman was nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Actor for his role as Hud.
  • The ad campaigns for the film upon its release announced: "Paul Newman is HUD."
  • Paul Newman had been so frustrated by the censor's reactions to several of his previous edgy films that he chose the most unsavory story and character he could find, which was Hud, the amoral loner and seducer in Larry McMurtry's HORSEMAN, PASS BY.
