“Apocalypse Now: Redux” is a 2001 extended version of Francis Ford Coppola‘s epic war film Apocalypse Now, which was originally released in 1979. Coppola, along with editor/longtime collaborator Walter Murch, added 49 minutes of material that had been removed from the original film. It represents a significant re-edit of the original version. This ‘Redux’ release features for the first time in landscape format the iconic ‘helicopters in the sunset’ artwork created by Bob Peak for the original 1979 campaign. There is no doubting that this sweeping vista widescreen style perfectly suits the UK quad format. With incredible burnt orange sunset and brown colour tones this totally unrestored rolled (as issued) example presents and displays to excellent effect with only minimal handling wear that represents a 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.
