The four principal actors -- Newman, Neal, Douglas, and de Wilde -- are so good that they might well form the nucleus of a cinematic repertory company.

TV Guide
January 7, 2008
A blistering adult western which broke ground in its depiction of an unglamorous West and in the decidedly anti-heroic nature of its lead.

These questions are richer than they might have been in Hud because Newman...creates Hud as a sum of conscious choices, not an animal or an icon.

James Wong Howe won the film's third Oscar for his beautiful widescreen, black-and-white, wide-open-spaces cinematography, but director Martin Ritt (who was nominated) keeps things a bit too serious and self-important.
