TCM did a Paul Newman marathon last Sunday, and I Tivoed Hud based on some of the good things I had heard about it. And I have to say, it far exceeded my expectations. This is probably the best movie of Newman's that I've seen. The best part is the screenplay, based on a Larry McMurtry book. The dialogue is a kind I'm fond of: everyone speaks in a manner that sounds, somehow, both strightforward and poetic all at once.
