Travis Bickle is the protagonist of the film Taxi Driver. He plans first on assassinating a president, and later on stopping a 12-year-old prostitute named Iris from prostitution. He was played by Robert De Niro.
Travis occupies Slot #30 in the Villains list in AFI's 100 Years... Heroes and Villains.
Watching the movie "Taxi Driver" at least 15 times, especially the scene where Travis tries to assassinate a president, gave John Hinckley Jr. the idea of assassinating then-President Ronald Reagan.
