Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Linen Backed Very Good Plus to 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 dazzling movie about two guys attempting survival in the glitzy world of sixties Manhattan. Voight plays a fresh-faced Texan, who thinks he's found success as a male prostitute. But he discovers otherwise as he goes from one degrading experience to another. He meets and befriends Ratso Rizzo, a crippled man living on the streets of New York by his wits. 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 had a tear and some marker on it. The tear has been repaired and the marker removed. The poster has been restored and presents very nicely indeed. Offered at an appropriate price, here is one of the most desired Best Picture one-sheets. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees this poster to be original.
