In honor of the 40th anniversary of “Taxi Driver” — Martin Scorsese’s 1976 film in which Jodie Foster ’85 played one of her most famous characters, Iris the teenage prostitute — Foster and Scorsese spoke with Vanity Fair. “It’s odd to think that four decades have passed since we shot Taxi Driver on the streets of a very different New York City,” Scorsese said of the experience.
