  • Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Midnight Cowboy vintage movie posters where we offer a wide range of artwork for one of cinema's ultimate dramatic films.

    Released in 1969, Midnight Cowboy, is an American drama film that portrayed the fetid lives and desperate friendship of two broken travelers and became the only X-rated (meaning that only adults could see it) movie to gain an Academy Award for best picture (the movie’s rating was later changed to R).

    Persuaded of his alluring appeal to ladies, Texas dishwasher Joe Buck (Jon Voight) stops his work and heads for New York City, considering he'll hook on to a few wealthy ladies. New York, in any case, isn't as friendly as he envisioned, and Joe before long finds himself living in an empty building with a Dickensian layabout named Enrico "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman). The two form a rough alliance, and together they kick-start Joe's hustling career fair as Ratso's wellbeing starts to fall apart. The movie, based on a 1965 novel of the same name by James Leo Herlihy, was British director John Schlesinger’s first Hollywood film. Midnight Cowboy’s seamy portrayal of sexuality was stunning at the time and drew an X rating, but it received generally positive reviews and won five BAFTA Awards (counting that for best picture) as well as three Academy Awards, and it was chosen for preservation in the National Film Registry in 1994.

    Film/Art Gallery's collection of Midnight Cowboy movie posters include an Italian poster for Oscar-winning classic. Midnight Cowboy poster collection also showcases a British version and a Waldemar Swierzy artwork.

    Film/Art Gallery movie posters are original prints and film poster collectibles. These are original movie posters. We do not carry any movie poster reproductions or reprints of any kind.
