Hud (1963) Newman played a bastard, very charismatically, in Martin Ritt's adaptation of a story by Larry McMurtry about the changing of the old West to the less-savory new West. Melvyn Douglas, Brandon De Wilde and especially Patricia Neal are excellent as the people who warily share their world with the bitter Hud. Newman looks gorgeous playing, ironically, a man you really wouldn't want to know.
