Midnight Cowboy 1969



Joe Buck is as naive as he is blue-eyed and handsome. When he arrives in a garish New York he is sure that he'll find sex, adventure and money. What the 'cowboy' finds in alien territory is just one friend - Ratso Rizzo. This odd couple strike up one of the most unusual partnerships in screen history.
