Apocalypse Now: Cast and Crew

This lot has closed

Estimate: $100+


Group of nine DSs, each one page, 8.5 x 11, dated from 1977 to 1979. Documents waiving the rights to screen credits in Apocalypse Now signed by five minor cast members—Frank Villard, David Olivier, Christian Marquand, Chrystel Le Pelletier, and Aurore Clément—and four producers and crew assistants—Gray Frederickson, Fred Roos, Jerry Ziesmer, and Joe Lowry. In overall very good to fine condition.

Ziesmer served as the assistant director, and took over the filming of the scenes with Marlon Brando after Francis Ford Coppola became fed up with the actor's antics; Ziesmer also uttered one of the film's most memorable lines—'Terminate, with extreme prejudice'—after Coppola failed for months to find a suitable actor. The five French actors were cut from the original release, but appeared in the film when Coppola revisited his masterpiece with the revised and extended version, Apocalypse Now Redux, released in 2001. The significant re-edit added 49 minutes to the original's runtime, among them a long French plantation sequence in which Villard, Olivier, Marquand, Le Pelletier, and Clément appear on screen.
