Midnight Cowboy is a 1969 American drama film based on the 1965 novel of the same name by James Leo Herlihy.
The film was written by Waldo Salt, directed by John Schlesinger, and stars Jon Voight in the title role alongside Dustin Hoffman.
Ratso refuses medical help and begs Joe to put him on a bus to Florida.
Desperate, Joe picks up a man in an amusement arcade (Barnard Hughes), and when things go wrong, robs the man when he tries to pay with a religious medallion instead of cash. On the journey, Ratso's frail physical condition further deteriorates.
It was the only X-rated film ever to win Best Picture, though its rating has since been changed to R.
