Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight star in John Schlesinger's Oscar-winning drama based on the novel by James Leo Herlihy. Texan dishwasher Joe Buck (Voight) dreams of making it big in New York. Convinced that he can make his fortune providing sexual favours for wealthy women, he makes the move to the Big Apple. Unfortunately, the first woman he beds down with, Cass (Sylvia Miles), doesn't have any money to speak of, and borrows some of his. At this point, sleazy street-hustler Enrico 'Ratso' Rizzo (Hoffman) enters the frame, offering to become Joe's 'manager'. The only engagement he can arrange is with a gay Christian (John McGiver), but Joe and Ratso soon become close friends, fantasizsng to each other about the millions they are going to make. The film won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, while both Hoffman and Voight were nominated for Best Actor.
Winner of the Academy Award'" for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay, Midnight Cowboy also boasts Oscar* nominated performances by Dustin Hoffman, Jon Voight and Sylvia Miles. Dustin Hoffman gives an unforgettable performance as Ratso Rizzo, a scrounging, sleazy small-time con man with big dreams. Jon Voight is magnificent as Joe Buck, the good-looking, naively charming Texan 'cowboy' who is convinced that he is the salvation of many lonely, love starved New York women. These two characters are drawn together in this powerful and compassionate film.
Blake Edwards' screen adaptation of Truman Capote's novella stars Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, an eccentric high-class escort working in New York. When young writer Paul Varjack (George Peppard) - the kept man of a wealthy older woman - moves into Holly's apartment block, he finds inspiration when he falls in love with her. Daring in its day, it is believed by some that Peppard was chosen because he bore an uncanny resemblance to Capote himself.
