Robert De Niro’s Taxicab License

While preparing for his role as Travis Bickle in “Taxi Driver”, Robert De Niro was filming Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1900 in Italy. According to co-star Peter Boyle, he would “finish shooting on a Friday in Rome … get on a plane … [and] fly to New York.” De Niro obtained a cab driver’s license, and when on break would pick up a cab and drive around New York for a couple of weeks.
