A guaranteed original one sheet movie poster for John Schlesinger's 1969 cinematic masterpiece "Midnight Cowboy", based on the 1965 novel by James Leo Herlihy and starring Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight.

Based on the 1965 novel by James Leo Herlihy, this incredible movie depicts the friendship of a naive (would be) male sex worker (Voight) and a limping con man (Hoffman). With astonishing performances by both leads (who were both nominated for the Best Actor Oscar) and amazing direction by Schlesinger, this is a gritty, yet beautiful movie. Even Toots Thielemans haunting mouth-organ theme tune is perfection.

Nominated for seven Academy Awards, it would win three, including the coveted Best Picture and Best Director Oscars. We recently re-watched this incredible film. If you haven't seen it, do look it up. Tough and powerful, but full of emotion. An amazing movie.

On its original U.S. release the film was given an 'X' rating. This greatly reduced the number of movie theatres that were willing to show it, so the film was re-cut, gaining an 'R' rating. This poster is from the original release and carries the 'X' rating certification!

This superb poster was originally issued folded, but has now been professionally linen-backed.  As our photos show it displays fantastically and will look incredible framed and on display.

By the way, Midnight Cowboy is the only 'X' rated film to win the Best Picture Oscar!

We only sell guaranteed original movie posters. We do not sell reproductions.

Note: This poster is priced unframed. Photos showing framed and 'in room' images are for illustration only. Please check our hi-res images and the sizing information shown above.
