Midnight Cowboy

David Gritten in The Daily Telegraph speaks to director John Clancy and playwright Tim Fountain about the latter's adaptation of Midnight Cowboy.
"It's strange," Clancy says during a lunch break [during rehearsals]. "Everyone claims to have seen the film, but they can't remember it. The poster [of tall, rangy Voight as Joe and the far smaller Hoffman as Rizzo against a backdrop of skyscrapers] is what they remember. It's such an iconic image."

"And people know that line of Hoffman's when a taxi nearly runs him down," Fountain adds. "You know: 'I'm walking here, I'm walkin'!'"
