Taxi Driver

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Robert De Niro shoots Sport the pimp in the stomach, the bullet supposedly goes through Sport's back, and blood splatters onto the doorway framework behind him. However, as Sport falls to the ground, look closely, and you can see a wire dangling from his lower back, which was used by the special effects team to detonate the fake blood packet. (01:39:05)

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene right after DeNiro is watching the Senator on the TV, he is driving in his cab past the campaign headquarters. As the camera goes past the window and focuses on desk phone, you can see the reflection of a cameraman for a second or so in the glass.

Visible crew/equipment: Right before De Niro's character is shot in the neck, you can see the small charge used to detonate the blood.

Mistakes

When Travis is with the gun salesman, he is trying out the black gun. You see a close up shot of him holding the gun with his arm outstretched with his jacket on. In the very next shot (no time has elapsed) his arms are at his side and his jacket is now completely off.

Trivia

Director Martin Scorsese makes more then just a cameo in this film, he's the passenger that sits with Travis talking about how he's going to kill his wife for cheating on him with a black man. He's credited as "Man Watching Silhouette".
