Why Is There No Blu-Ray Of “Hud”?

Jeffrey Wells asks the question about this movie starring Paul Newman and Brandon de Wilde: ‘I’ve been moaning for years about the absence of a Bluray of Martin Ritt‘s “Hud” (’63). James Wong Howe‘s Oscar-winning black-and-white widescreen photography cries out for a high-def mastering. You can watch a high-def “Hud” via Amazon HD…But there’s something about owning a Bluray that trumps access to a high-def download. I want a “Hud” Bluray to have and to hold. Paramount Home Video put out a DVD about 10 years ago, but I presume they’ve since licensed the rights to Warner Home Video.
