Hud Bannon (Paul Newman) is a young Texas rancher who lives with his cattleman father Homer (Melvyn Douglas) and his hero-worshipping nephew Lon (Brandon DeWilde). Hud is an amoral, cold-hearted creature; his father, who holds Hud responsible for the death of his other son, tries to imbue Lon with a sense of decency and responsibility to others, but Lon is devoted to Hud and isn’t inclined to listen. When hoof-and-mouth disease shows up in one of the elder Bannon’s cows, Hud is all for selling the herd before the government inspectors find out. But Homer orders the cattle destroyed (the film’s most harrowing sequence), driving an even deeper wedge between himself and Hud. Finally, Hud steps over the line by attempting to assault Alma (Patricia Neal), the earthy but warm-hearted housekeeper. Paul Newman was so repellently brilliant as an unregenerate heel that his Oscar nomination for HUD was a foregone conclusion. Although Newman lost the Oscar to Sidney Poitier in LILIES OF THE FIELD, Oscars did go to Neal for Best Actress, Douglas for Best Supporting Actor, and cinematographer James Wong Howe.
