Bernard Herrmann gave his last breath to the film’s music (literally, he died the day he finished the score). Scorsese’s violent homage to mid-1970s social upheavals won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and was a surprise box-office hit. De Niro’s role remains one of the most mimicked and plagiarised in cinema history. With Jodie Foster, Cybill Shepherd and Harvey Keitel.
The screening will be introduced by Dr Gino Moliterno, ANU.
