Selected by the Costume Designers Branch.

Martin Scorsese’s film of Paul Schrader’s original screenplay about a New York cab driver whose alienation from society leads to violence is one of the defining American films of the 1970s, and earned four Oscar nominations including Best Picture. Oscar-nominee Ruth Morley (The Miracle Worker) had an impressive career designing costumes for film, Broadway, and the opera, and Taxi Driver features some of her most iconic creations, with the unforgettable, Oscar-nominated performances of Robert De Niro and Jodie Foster aided immeasurably by Morley’s distinctive designs.
