Episode 674: Midnight Cowboy (1969)

Episode 674: Midnight Cowboy (1969) Special Guest: Glenn Frankel
Guest Co-Hosts: Jon Towlson, Chris Stachiw

On this special episode of The Projection Booth we’re looking at John Schlesinger's Midnight Cowboy (1969). It’s the story of Joe Buck (Jon Voight), a hick from Texas who goes to the big city to become a hustler. Instead, he’s hustled by everyone he meets including "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman ). The two form an unlikely friendship as they try to survive in New York.

Chris Stachiw (The Kulturecast) and Jon Towlson (author of the Queer Cinema Classics book on Midnight Cowboy) join Mike to discuss the movie. Author Glenn Frankel discusses his book, Shooting Midnight Cowboy: Art, Sex, Loneliness, Liberation, and the Making of a Dark Classic, and the documentary it inspired.
