Showing my film geekery here, Dave, but Scorcese's actually in Taxi Driver twice. The first time Travis sees Betsy, he's sitting on the corner and appears to be the only other person to notice her.

But then Scorcese's fond of cameos - he was Shorty in Mean Streets, the voice of the dispatcher in Bringing Out The Dead, a lighting assistant in After Hours, a guy at a brothel in Boxcar Bertha and a TV director in The King Of Comedy.
