De Niro's hack license used for "Taxi Driver"

Since last Monday, the Harry Ransom Center displayed material from Robert De Niro’s films, donated by the actor. Located a mere thirty or so miles from here at The University of Texas, the Ransom Center holds a pretty impressive collection of memorabilia from De Niro’s films, including his robe from “Raging Bull” as well as scripts and other materials used in his films. Even though Sunday was the last day to visit the collection, it’s neat to think that one of cinema’s most important and influential actors would be generous enough to have props from his works displayed to the public, especially since the public very rarely gets a chance to delve behind the scenes of such a high caliber actor.
