The film was written by Creator/PaulSchrader and was inspired by a CreatorBreakdown he'd experienced in the mid-70s and which he hoped to get out of by "exorcism through art" (his words). The project was originally going to be directed by Brian De Palma and languished for years until it attracted the attention of Scorsese and Creator/RobertDeNiro and is notable for being one of De Niro's first massive roles and for Creator/JodieFoster's breakout role, as a child prostitute (she was twelve years old at the time). Cybill Shepherd, Creator/HarveyKeitel, Creator/AlbertBrooks, and Peter Boyle also appear in the film, and Music/BernardHerrmann composed the music score (his last). Both De Niro and Foster received Oscar nominations.)
