Hud (1963) in 35mm
Directed by Martin Ritt
Starring Paul Newman, Melvyn Douglas, and Patricia Neal

The motion picture industry was transformed in the 1960s by a new generation of filmmakers and actors who provided an unflinching look at American society. Although the entire Western genre was transformed, modern Westerns were ideally suited for their social commentary.    

Hud Bannon (Newman), a selfish and reckless cowboy, is always at odds with his rancher father (Douglas). Almost everyone on the ranch, including Hud’s teenage nephew and the middle-aged housekeeper (Neal), are caught in the middle of their feud. The situation comes to a head when conditions threaten to destroy the ranch.

Hud premiered in May 1963, and this screening of the only 35mm print still in circulation marks the fiftieth anniversary of the modern classic.
