Worth seeing again …

… Newman’s own | Spectator USA. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The film was widely appreciated when it came out in 1963, winning multiple awards including three Oscars — though not, absurdly, for Newman. Martin Ritt, who died in 1990, always knew what he was doing. His films have a finished quality, as if they could have been no other way. Hud is probably his masterpiece. 
If memory serves, Hud delivers himself of an especially great line: "You're mighty big on the pleases and thank yous."
