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.
