There is no doubting that this sweeping vista widescreen style perfectly suits the UK quad format. Printed on a heavier than usual stock paper the colour saturation is superb allowing the burnt orange sunset to really pop, add to this the addition of gold title and text detailing it is a poster that doesn’t fail to impress. Totally unrestored and rolled (as issued) this presents and displays to excellent effect with only minimal handling wear. A truly beautiful piece of original movie memorabilia from one of the finest film’s ever made…“Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that”

    Trivia: Francis Ford Coppola believed that Marlon Brando was familiar with Joseph Conrad‘s “Heart of Darkness”, the novel on which the movie is based. When Brando arrived on-set, Coppola was horrified to find that Brando had never read “Heart of Darkness”, did not know his lines, and had become extremely overweight. Kurtz had always been written as tall and very thin. After some panic, Coppola decided to film the 5’10” Brando as if he was a massively built, 6’5″ brute to explain his size, and kept the camera away from his huge belly.

    Trivia: John Milius explained how he had come up with the title “Apocalypse Now”. Apparently, this was derived from a very popular tattoo among the hippie community of a peace sign that said “Nirvana Now”. Milius, by adding just a couple of extra lines, edited the peace symbol to make it look like a circle with a B52 bomber in the middle, and changed the slogan to “Apocalypse Now”.
