By 4 Star Film Fan on Apr 18, 2019 From 4 Star Films

“I’ve always thought the law was meant to be interpreted in a lenient manner. Sometimes I lean one way and sometimes I lean the other.” – Paul Newman as Hud Hud is up for contention for the finest film Martin Ritt ever made and it comes down to a truly collective effort. When... Read full article


Hud (1963, Martin Ritt)

By Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 2, 2014 From The Stop Button

Every once in a while in Hud, it seems like Paul Newman's eponymous lead character might do something selfless. Not redemptive or nice, but selfless. It's not the point of the film and not one of its promises–it's just visible how significant it would be for Brandon De Wilde, pl... Read full article

Quotes from

Homer Bannon: That's your solution for getting out of a tight? To pass bad beef on to my neighbors who wouldn't know what they was getting? Or maybe risk starting an epidemic in the entire country?
Hud Bannon: This country is run on epidemics, where you been? Price fixing, crooked TV shows, inflated expense accounts. How many honest men you know? Why you separate the saints from the sinners, you're lucky to wind up with Abraham Lincoln. Now I want out of this spread what I put into it, and I say let us dip our bread into some of that gravy while it is still hot.
Homer Bannon: You're an unprincipled young man Hud.
Hud Bannon: Don't let that worry you none. You got enough for both of us.


Alma Brown: I go in for those prize contests. "How Shinette shampoo changed my life" in 20 words or less. They give free trips to Europe but I end up with the fountain pens and the Japanese binoculars.


Homer Bannon: You don't care about people Hud. You don't give a damn about 'em. Oh, you got all that charm goin' for ya. And it makes the youngsters want to be like ya. That's the shame of it because you don't value anything. You don't respect nothing. You keep no check on your appetites at all. You live just for yourself. And that makes you not fit to live with.
