Robert De Niro, Cybill Sheperd and Martin Scorsese
Throwback Thursday is a weekly update that we do here on Caught on Set. Every Thursday we post pictures from the set of a movie you haven’t seen in a while, or possibly ever.
Today we have behind the scenes photos from yet another of Hollywood's greatest films. Taxi Driver, released in 1976, was written by Paul Schrader who also wrote Raging Bull and American Gigolo among many others. Martin Scorsese was put in charge to direct only his 4th feature length film of his legendary career. Robert De Niro, Cybill Sheperd and a 12 year old Jodie Foster. From IMBD.com:
"A mentally unstable Vietnam war veteran works as a nighttime taxi driver in New York City where the perceived decadence and sleaze feeds his urge to violently lash out, attempting to save a teenage prostitute in the process."

If you haven't seen the film, Jodie Foster plays the teenage prostitute character that De Niro's Character Travis Bickle tries to save. In 1997 the AFI named Taxi Driver as the 47th best film of all time. It truly is a great movie and a classic. If you haven't seen it yet you really should.

Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper
January 22 -- Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper are seen having a heated conversation on the set of Limitless in Philadelphia (thanks to PhillyChitChat for the pictures and video).
Cooper plays Eddie Morra in the film, a copywriter who discovers a top-secret drug that allows him to use 100% of his brain.
The trailer for Limitless is set to debut during Super Bowl XLV one week from Sunday. 106 million people watched the game last year so expect some buzz for the film after the game.
