An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Forty by Sixty Movie Poster (measures 40" x 60") (Learn More)

Midnight Cowboy, the classic 1969 John Schlesinger (winner of the Best Director Academy Award for this film) male prostitution melodrama ("Based on the novel by James Leo Herlihy"; winner of the Best Picture Academy Award; about a naive Texan who moves to New York to become a male prostitute for wealthy women, and ends up in a close relationship with a male street hustler) starring Dustin Hoffman (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; as Ratso Rizzo), Jon Voight (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; as Joe Buck), Brenda Vaccaro, John McGiver, Ruth White, Sylvia Miles (nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for this film), Barnard Hughes, Viva, Gastone Rossilli, Ultra Violet, and Bob Balaban. This was the first (and only) adult movie to win a Best Picture Oscar. Dustin Hoffman not winning the Best Actor Academy Award is certainly the biggest mistake in the history of the Academy Awards!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this poster carries the original "X" rating the movie originally received. "X" rated movie posters from "Midnight Cowboy" are far more difficult to find (although I don't know if an "R" rated 40x60 was even made at all).

Condition: very good to fine. The poster had some creases near the center of the image in the lower part of Hoffman's jacket, and a few others scattered through the image. But there weren't many creases overall, and they weren't very distracting. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was well backed, and looks great!
