Did You Know?

The novel "Exodus" is briefly but clearly visible on the paperback rack in the pharmacy scene. Paul Newman had starred in the film of the novel (Exodus (1960)) three years earlier.See more »
Audio/visual unsynchronized: The audio sound of the motor of the pickup in the opening scenes is clearly that of an inline engine. However, the GMC pickup had "V8" emblems clearly seen on the front fender sides, and the sound of a v-type engine is quite dissimilar to that of an inline.See more »

My Favorite Paul Newman film, 5 December 1999
Author: Polo from United States

This is my favorite Paul Newman film. Paul gives his best performance as a low-life, hard-drinking, don't-give-a-damn s.o.b. He is absolutely beautiful in this movie with a presence that makes you not want to turn your head from the screen. Melvin Douglas gives an outstanding and Oscar winning performance as Old Homer Bannon. Patricia Neal won a Best Actress Oscar for her fine performance even though her character was really a supporting role, but let's not get technical. And ill-fated Brandon De Wilde is also truly amazing and beautiful as Lon who adores his Uncle Hud only to hate him later.
