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.
