The Martin Scorsese Taxi Driver Rumor Fact or Fiction

I run a half hour show that gives the viewers a insightful look into the artistry and magic that goes into creating such dynamic independent features that are seen in many film festivals .

Now our first guest of the second season Lance Karasti created a short feature titled Filmmaker that supposedly centers around a Martin Scorsese rumor that ocured while making Taxi Driver. It claims that Martin Scorsese put a gun to one of the lead producers threatening to murder him if he dared cut a important scene out of Taxi Driver.

So take a moment to watch our selected interview at http://youtu.be/D9hiLR4pTnA

and decide for yourself whether it is fact or fiction and reply below.
