    I like that movie. Patricia Neal is very good in it. All the cast is, really.

    I think Patricia Neal got an academy award for her role in "Hud".

    It's a great movie. :wavey:

    I'm fairly impressed with well-acted, dialogue heavy movies. You think about how great a movie is because of acting ability. I know next to nothing about acting, but know good acting when it's on the screen.

    Newman must've had fun with a lot of those lines.

    I liked Bill Cosbys description of it prior to his routine on hoof and mouth. Lol

    I guess it was a different time. I don't like On The Waterfront either.

    Pretty funny stuff by Cosby. Great comedic talent, I think.

    I never liked On the Waterfront either. Can't remember exactly why, but something seemed missing.

    Hud was adapted from Larry McMurtry's first novel (1961), Horseman Pass By, and was released in 1963.

    It was filmed primarily in Claude, Texas (County Seat of Armstrong County), a very small town about 30 miles east of Amarillo. All of the actors and film crew stayed in motels in Amarillo, as Claude had no suitable motels. There is a very interesting and entertaining depiction of the whole filming scene in McMurtry's excellent book, In a Narrow Grave.

    As noted below your post, she did win an Oscar for this role but it was shortly after that when she had a series of strokes and had brain surgery as part of the treatment. This caused her to forgo the role of Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate. In spite of the results of the stroke (mainly vocal huskiness), she returned to acting and only died recently in 2010.

    Some great old flicks mentioned in this thread. Hud was always one of my favorite Paul Newman movies, along with Butch Cassidy and the Sun Dance Kid and The Sting.

    The Raging Bull was Di Nero's best movie ever.
