Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Ever since seeing Spaceballs as a child I always seem to get all smiley when I see a picture of actors standing next to their doubles. So, today we celebrate industry doubles with this shot of young Jodie Foster and her double on the set of Taxi Driver.
You know how great this film is, so I’ll keep my praise short, but I will say that as much as I like Mean Streets, Taxi Driver is the flick that really made me a Martin Scorsese fan. There’s a natural effortlessness to this movie that is hard to ignore. Everything is right in the world when Robert De Niro is crazying up the joint.
Thanks to a reader Kyle Tracey for sending this one along!
*Pssst. I am told that's Jodie Foster's older sister. Connie. I knew Foster's sister doubled her in her early films, like The Little Girl Who Lived Down the Lane, but didn't know for sure if that was her... still don't, but people who are smarter than me think it's her, so there you have it.
