Conclusion: Midnight Cowboy is a classic and a masterpiece. Unfortunately, unless someone is willing to invest significant effort and money in a major restoration, this Blu-ray from Fox/MGM is probably the best it's going to look.
Excerpt: It's difficult to imagine the impact that Midnight Cowboy must have had when it was first released, dealing as it does in with issues that the commercial cinema didn't often touch upon in 1969.
Conclusion: I am not overly impressed with the Blu-ray release of Midnight Cowboy . 20th Century Fox/MGM could have and should have treated this classic film with a lot more respect and care. The only good news here is that the high-definition transfer has not been destroyed by DNR corrections.
