I might repeat myself here:

There was a little tidbit that intrigued me from the first time I’ve read OS mentioning¬†Taxi Driver¬†in 1988. It was something like he “became like Travis Bickle” after his return from Vietnam. I asked myself if he could be actually the prototype of Bickle — Scorsese was his teacher in NY from 1969-70

Recently I found this article (the red highlighting is mine)

Ah, well, life can be stranger than fiction. I think given the details — it’s even more mind-boggling that Stone was NOT the prototype of Bickle…

Interesting Taxi Driver – Last Temptation of Christ parallels
