Charting a course as the most progressive major studio for the next decade, United Artists took the X rating for their emotionally affecting and gritty movie — all the way to big box office and then the Oscars, where the film won Best Picture, Director, and Adapted Screenplay (Waldo Salt). Memorably portraying, respectively, a Texan plying the gigolo trade in Manhattan and the streetwise schemer who befriends him, Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman (“I’m walkin’ heah!”) were Oscar-nominated.

A film by John Schlesinger
