John Schlesinger's 1969 Best Picture winner Midnight Cowboy comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen image preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and is preferable to the standard full-frame 1.33:1 presentation. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. Supplemental materials include theatrical trailers. This disc has good picture quality and very good sound quality, but considering its status as an Oscar winner, one would be right to wish for more background information.
Full-length feature in both Pan & Scan and 1.85:1 letterbox formats
Classic movie and very good cast. Yours truly Mike Ornelas.
I would recommend this to a friend

Best Picture Oscar Winner!
I'm sure this movie was more shocking when it was released in 1969 but it's still a great movie! Oscar nominated performances from Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight. The first X rated movie to win the Oscar for Best Picture. Great John Barry score! Not to be missed!
