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.
Collection of three films adapted from Agatha Christie's novels following the Belgian sleuth. In 'Murder On the Orient Express' (1974), while heading into heavy weather, the Orient Express gets stuck in the snow and overnight one of the passengers - the millionaire Ratchett (Richard Widmark) - is repeatedly stabbed to death. Who did it? Luckily the famous detective Hercule Poirot (Albert Finney) is on hand to find out. The cast also includes Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery and Vanessa Redgrave. In 'Death On the Nile' (1978) a rich heiress is murdered aboard a steamship travelling down the Nile. Poirot (Peter Ustinov) discovers that almost all the passengers had a reason to kill her but will he be able to locate the true culprit before the ship reaches port? The film also stars Bette Davis, Maggie Smith, Angela Lansbury and David Niven. Finally, in 'Evil Under the Sun' (1982), when beautiful socialite Arlena Marshall (Diana Rigg) is found strangled on a Mediterranean island, there is no shortage of suspects for Poirot (Ustinov) to eliminate from his enquiries.
