Paul Newman’s Brilliance Shines in Hud

Hud (Paul Newman) makes his first pass at Alma (Patricia Neal) his family’s housekeeper in Martin Ritt’s masterful rendition of McMurtry’s novel. Neal won academy award.
This movie is an American masterpiece, mainly due to Paul and Patricia’s brilliantly acted scenes together: who’s the cat and who’s the mouse…?

She won the Best Actress Oscar for this role, but it would take Paul another 20-plus years and lots of nominations to finally win one.

PAUL, YOU WERE BRILLIANT. REST IN PEACE.

Thank you Larry.
