Behind the scenes pictures of 1976's Taxi Driver

Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster and screenwriter Paul Schrader will celebrate 'Taxi Driver' 40th Anniversary at Tribeca Film Festival this year on April 21 at the Beacon Theatre. The film will be screened as a digitally restored and remastered 4K from the original negative, followed by a special conversation with the remarkable group.

Jane Rosenthal, co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, talked about the film:

"Taxi Driver is one of the most brilliantly disturbing movies ever made, and why I chose to go into film. It's had an indelible impact on pop culture, and its performances rank among the most memorable in cinema," she said, "It's a great honor to have the original cast at the Festival and to present this masterpiece to a new generation."

As part of the celebration, here is a set of behind-the-scenes photographs during the production of the iconic film. Watch the pictures in the gallery below and if you'd like to know some facts about 'Taxi Driver', head over here.
