MARLON BRANDO ARMY JACKET FROM "APOCALYPSE NOW"
United Artists, 1979
A khaki military-issue jacket adorned with eight patches including ones that read Kurtz and U.S. Army. Though not worn by Marlon Brando, who portrayed the intense Colonel Walter E. Kurtz and whose jacket this is, this piece was used as set dressing. At the end of the film when Martin Sheen, as Captain Benjamin L. Willard, finally reaches Kurtz, he stumbles across some of the Colonel's old military accoutrements including this jacket which can be seen hanging on a wall under a beret. Also included is a photocopied script from the film recently signed by John Milius, the screenwriter, who was on location throughout filming and who kept this jacket as a souvenir.
