INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Glenn Frankel.
According to a statement: “From Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, film scholar/historian, and bestselling author of The Searchers and High Noon – GLENN FRANKEL – has a new book on Hollywood legends and history – SHOOTING MIDNIGHT COWBOY: Art, Sex, Loneliness, Liberation, and The Making of a Dark Classic (Farrar, Straus and Giroux: March 16, 2021).
“John Schlesinger’s Midnight Cowboy is something unique in the history of cinema. The story of a young Texan who moves to New York City to become a hustler, and the relationship he forms with a small-time grifter, it is the only film with an X-rating ever to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards. In SHOOTING MIDNIGHT COWBOY, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Glenn Frankel gives this dark classic of the New Hollywood era the authoritative history that it deserves.”
“Glenn Frankel—a former Washington Post journalist who received a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting from the Middle East in 1989—has, in the past decade, made a name for himself as the author of page-turning and authoritative works of film history. To write and research Shooting Midnight Cowboy, Frankel conducted interviews with all of the surviving players in this story—including both Hoffman and Voight—and he consequently over turns some long-standing myths about the film, including how it got its infamous X-rating.”
