You talkin' to me?

Publié le par Lucie

It isn't strictly to do with translation, but since today's news seems to be that Robert De Niro will be this year's Festival de Cannes' president and since the French seem to be a little stuck on Taxi Driver, I thought I'd let everyone know that Bruce Springsteen first came up with that  world-famous quote. It's true, I'm not making things up! Clarence Clemons (Bruce's sax-player) writes it in his auto-biography. Apparently De Niro heard the Boss say it on-stage to his audience during a concert in 1975, and thought it sounded so good that he'd re-use it. Fact!

Rendons à César...
