Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1979. Vintage reference photograph of Francis Ford Coppola on the set of the 1979 film.
Loosely based on the 1899 novella "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad. "Apocalypse Now" remains the ultimate reflection of the American experience in Vietnam, taking Joseph Conrad's dark vision of an expedition up the Congo and transplanting it to Vietnam-era Cambodia. It is one of the few films ever to benefit from an expanded director's cut, released in 2001 and employing many sequences cut from the first theatrical release, adding both depth and context to the original version. Winner of two Academy Awards and nominated for six others, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay. Winner of the Palme d'Or.
Shot on grueling location in the Philippines.
8 x 10 inches, with wide vertical margins as struck. Near Fine, with light creasing in top margin.
