Old School Fridays: Taxi Driver

Welcome to another edition of Old School Fridays, the weekly kickoff to a great weekend where we highlight a different old movie trailer each and every week. This week, relish in the original theatrical trailer for Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver.

This trailer manages to capture the feel of the film and Travis Bickle's character, but the cheesy narration and the awful yellow text that pops up on the screen every now and then just makes tit too much a product of its times; as well the trailer is lengthy by today's standards. Even still, whether you have seen Taxi Driver or not, you've gotta admit it's hilarious when the narrator says, " DeNiro in his most chilling performance ever as, the Taxi Driver."

Well that does it for this Friday. Check back next week for another editon of Old School Fridays!
