I watched most of Hud this evening on TCM. It was B&W and Paul Newman drove a 1958 Series 62 convertible. It got damaged in the front near the end of the movie, but was drivable. His father died from falling from his horse and was lying in the road causing the Cadillac to run into the rear of Brandon De Wilde's pickup.

The funeral scene featured a black 1958 hearse in all it's glory. I'd never bothered to watch this show. It essentially just "stops" at the end.

I always got a kick of how they dubbed in the sound of burning rubber on an asphalt road when the car is on a dirt road when Newman floors the convertible

patricia neal was very sexy. and the interaction between the two was great.


I remember at one point in the Movie Paul Newman says to someone to be careful that the 1958 Series 62 convertible is an expensive car but Newman drives it like a demolition derby car himself.
