Hud (1963)

84) Hud (1963)

Hud is the story of the title character – a young Texas rancher named Hud Bannon (Paul Newman), the son of moral patriarch, law-abiding cattleman Homer Bannon (Melvyn Douglas) in Texas.

7/10 – A bleak, impeccably shot and well acted film. It felt very authentic, not that I know much about Texas ranch life in the 1960s, but the raw emotion pouring out of Paul Newmans character, the issues faced by those on the ranch and the sheer likability of Patricia Neals character all made for an endearing film.
