I vividly remember reading this interview on a beach in Santa Barbara back in '83, and the fact that it frightened Mr. Sumner so has (for some odd reason) never left me. Special thanks to quiz regular Mr. Mangold for locating it on the interweb!
I've always considered The King of Comedy as an alternate version of Taxi Driver, with Rupert Pupkin being Travis Bickle's separated-at-birth brother. A box-office failure for Scorsese, I find it to be one of those films that only gets better with age. It's got Jerry Lewis basically playing himself, Sandra Bernhard in her underwear, and Kim Chan uttering the unforgettable line, "I'm having a heart attack already." Plus, it features members of The Clash in a cameo. What's not to love? Congrats to those who recognized Rupert's photo of his pride and joy.
