FRINGE BENEFITS / EVERYBODY’S TALKIN’.

01.10.2014

It would seem that there as been a lot of channeling of inner Midnight Cowboy’s of late, but as these original b&w stills from the 1969 John Schlesinger directed classic show, Jon Voight takes some beating for rocking the look. Script written by Waldo Salt from the original novel of the same name stars Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman, and if you haven’t seen for a while it is strongly recommended for another look. The film won three Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay, and is often in the shortlist of greatest American movie. Worth watching again for the soundtrack alone, (especially the Jean Toots Thielemans harmonica intro on the John Barry title track), and the late night 1960’s street shots of NYC.
