I just recently saw "Apocalypse Now" for the first time, and I've heard about a 5 1/2 hour workprint/rough cut that has been known to exist. Does anyone have this and/or know where I can find it? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

It's reasonably common because it's so infamous. I have a copy, but unless you have a trade list, I'm really too swamped to send out a freebie right now. Maybe in a few weeks, though.

I used to be very active on this forum. I’m not really anymore. Hi everybody. You’re all awesome. Keep up the good work.

EDIT: Never mind. Consider it a bump.....even though it was at the top of the page to begin with.....

Almost every known copy is poor quality at best.

Sorry for the blank response.

If anyone has the 3 Disk version from subcin I'd love to get a copy. I have a 2 disk version that's not that great. Looking to upgrade. I have LOTS to trade. PM Me please

Once I actually get this, I'm thinking of making my own better "Apocalypse Now Redux", as well as perhaps a shorter version of the original. It'd probably just be for myself, but would anyone else be interested?

if someone could take the best version from subcin which is on 3 single layers and put it on maybe 1 0r 2 dual layer discs it would be great.

Or maybe even someone could track the the vhs source used to master it and someone on these boards could do a reel good quality transfer of it.

this really should be known as the Coppola Roughcut or producers's cut because it was probalbly taken from a vhs dupe of one of the video masters and given to some producer on the film.

What I really would like to see is a comp of the Lucas/Milius script with the documentary and the Vietnam chopper footage from more american graffiti to show what his vision would have been. Maybe even a fan documentary could pan away from the script and comp in The Scenes that were put in return of the jedi with the ewok's against the imperials to show a bit of the flavor of his original vision of the little guy triumphing over the machine.

Too bad he never made it because it would've been brilliant directed by Lucas, co written by milius produced by Coppola, and the sound mix was going to be done by Walter Murch. Lucas probalbly would
have done what he did with graffiti and his friend later did with forest gump on the music part of it.

Interesting. I bought the "Complete Dossier" today, and I was surprised at how sparse the extras were. Sure, there's a couple interesting features, but no workprint or "Hearts Of Darkness" were included. That sucks. I'd be interested in obtaining a copy of the workprint, and I have stuff from here I could trade, I guess.

Although, it does have some of the deleted scenes from the workprint. Even the quality on the official DVD is lacking... obviously a 1970s U-matic with a timecode. One scene is presented newly mastered, but it's heavily damaged and partially faded.

Did anyone have luck getting ahold of the additional "bonus disc" from Circuit City which was in their ad last week? It was suppose to include an additional 20mins of deleted/extended scenes.

It's all the stuff that was on the original release of AN: Redux, minus the excerpts from the theatrical program, I think. I haven't watched it yet, but I have it. My disc says:

Added Scenes and Expanded Themes of AP: Redux
Destruction of the Kurtz Compound with Optional Commentary
1979 and 2001 Theatrical Trailers

Can people with copies of the wp post screencaps? As far as I remember there is a newer remastered one with good audio that's making the rounds on 3 discs but I haven't gotten it. With all the releases a large amount of footage could be replace but whatever.

id love to see someone put together a "more complete dossier", maybe a couple of bonus discs including the circuit city stuff, the workprint and hearts of darkness. If we could make disc art that matched this could be a realy awesome project.
I'm always looking to trade my edits, if you don't want to get them from a torrent. PM or e-mail!

According to Coppola, Hearts of Darkness will be coming but it's owned by another company so that may have prevented its inclusion. He also mentioned that he feels he was wrongly depicted in the documentary and would like to do a commentary on it...
