    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.

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”.
