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.

Quotes from

Hud Bannon: I'll remember you, honey. You're the one that got away.


Homer Bannon: Little by little the look of the country changes because of the men we admire. You're just going to have to make up your own mind one day about what's right and wrong.


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.

However, he found Newman's performance as the eponymous Hud to be a superb piece of acting.
The novel "Exodus" is briefly but clearly visible on the paperback rack in the pharmacy scene. Paul Newman had starred in the film of the novel (Exodus) three years earlier.
Paul Newman played the part of Hud as a villain. He was later stunned that so many young moviegoers had a poster of Hud and viewed him as their hero.
