Hud

Directed by Martin Ritt • 1963 • United States
Starring Paul Newman, Melvyn Douglas, Patricia Neal

In one of his defining roles, Paul Newman stars as the titular “man with the barbed-wire soul,” the rotten-through-and-through progeny of a Texas ranchman (Melvyn Douglas) whose hard-drinking, womanizing, shiftless ways lead to an explosive rift within the household. Featuring Academy Award–winning cinematography in striking, high-contrast black and white by the great James Wong Howe, this blistering revisionist western offers a starkly unromanticized vision of the frontier.
