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
