Artist's Description

Midnight Cowboy is an American film made in 1969 and starring John Voight in the title role of Joe Buck with Dustin Hoffman as Ratso Rizzo.

These two are an unlikely pair and their relationship starts off on a sour note with the street wise Ratso conning Joe out of his money. However later, Ratso gives the very broke and disillusioned Joe, a derelict roof over his head, an extremely dirty mattress to lie on, and a suspect bowl of stew to eat. They begin a “business relationship,” helping each other pickpocket, steal and attempt to get Joe hired as a gigolo. They are both completely alone without each other, and a genuine bond develops between the two men. Rizzo had a cough when the two meet in the summer and, as the story progresses into winter, his health steadily worsens.

Ratso becomes very sick and unable to walk, and there are some very touching scenes where Joe takes care of him, steals some clothes and sells a pint of his blood so they can pay the bus fare to sunny Florida, where it’s hoped that Ratso will recover his health, Joe will find gainful employment, and life will be sweet. However, Ratso dies on the bus, and I defy any caring female to watch this film without bursting into tears, especially when Joe puts his arm around the very thin and lifeless body of Ratso and hugs him close.
