Original United Artists One Sheet Poster (27x41). Very fine condition.

This is an original United Artists One Sheet Poster (27x41) for the John Schlesinger dramatic masterpiece, MIDNIGHT COWBOY (1969) starring Dustin Hoffman, Jon Voight, and Sylvia Miles. Many critics consider this film to be one of the greatest American films of all time, and the American Film Institute includes it in its top 100. Schlesinger creates a dark but fascinating film about a na '_ve male prostitute who moves to New York City thinking that making a living will be easy. But he discovers otherwise as he goes from one degrading experience to another. He meets and befriends Ratso Rizzo a crippled, sleazy street person. Together, the two of them try to survive in this cold, cruel urban jungle with the goal of eventually moving to sunny Florida. The film got seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Actor nominations to both Hoffman and Voight and Best Supporting Actress to Miles. The Film won Best Picture, Best Screenplay, and Best Director to Schlesinger. The image on this great poster was shot by photographer Steve Shapiro. Steve Shapiro was one of the coauthors of one of the very first books about film posters, The Movie Poster Book, published in 1979. This original one sheet poster is in very fine condition.
