Based on the novel Midnight Cowboy by James Leo Herlihy, this 1969 drama film tells the story of a young, dilettante Texan who travels to New York and tries to gain financial stability and fame as a hustler. Directed by John Schlesinger, the movie stars John Voight and Dustin Hoffman.
WON Academy Awards for “BEST ACTOR”, “BEST DIRECTOR” and “BEST SCREENPLAY” and twenty International Film Festival Awards
“Superb performances and a compelling script have made this film a strange mix of Oscar-winner and Cult Classic.”
“In this film the scenery is lovely and only the human race is vile.”
“Midnight Cowboy” was rated “X” by the MPAA when it was first released, and became the first (and last) X-rated film to win an Academy Award as best picture.”
— Roger Ebert
