Robert De Niro was born in NYC on August 17th, um, back in the day!
Mr. De Niro is famously press-shy and relucatant to talk about his work, but Film4 got him to sit down in 2007 to reflect on Taxi Driver, The Deer Hunter (fave), and Once Upon a Time in America.
And finally, the 30 year-old De Niro as "Johnny Boy" (with Harvey Keitel) in Scorsese's Mean Streets (1973).
