Apocalypse Now - Rolling Stone Magazine Display

A prop copy of “Rolling Stone” magazine used in the Oscar winning Francis Ford Coppola war epic Apocalypse Now. Various pieces of literature were specially created for the movie, such as the Time Magazine pages Col. Kurtz (Marlon Brando) serenely reads about himself and his guerrilla antics towards the end of the movie, and although this particular magazine does not appear clearly on screen the headline “The Mission of Madness, Colonel Kurtz, Green Beret Guerilla” gives no doubt as to it’s origin. It could have been meant for an alternative shot to the Time magazine scene, or during the early scenes of Willard’s (Martin Sheen) initial briefing on his mission. This custom prop is built around an actual copy of Rolling Stone from June 30th 1977 with the animated front cover of Kurtz and other relevant articles from the era. To show how thorough the production made these props, there is even a custom written feature inside on Col. Kurtz complete with pictures, correct date and actually reads very well, a stunning effort by the production. This great item comes presented in a custom built display featuring the movie title and stills of Marlon Brando as Col. Kurtz with a stunning frame in the design of bamboo, and the magazine itself is held inside a secondary acrylic frame for easy removal and examination. The display measures 46cm x 75cm (18” x 29.5”) and the prop is in a great but slightly aged condition. Pieces from this legendary movie are virtually non-existent and extremely rare to find, creating a wonderfully unique piece for any collector.
