“It don’t take long to kill things. Not like it takes to grow.” – Homer Bannon (Melvyn Douglas) in Hud

The Japanese release poster for Hud (1963), another in a long line of classic anti-heroes from the great Paul Newman. The film marks one of five Newman collaborations with director Martin Ritt from 1958-1967, including the William Faulkner adaptation The Long, Hot Summer and the Elmore Leonard-penned western Hombre.
