Personal Quote:

I think the worst thing I ever saw Brando do was Apocalypse Now (1979), which was just dreadful--the finish of that picture. The model for it, "Heart of Darkness", has no finish either, and the movie-makers just didn't find one either. It's very good for a picture to have an ending before you start shooting! See more »

Trivia:

Originally cast in Mr. North (1988), but was hospitalized with pneumonia. He personally requested Robert Mitchum' to play his part in the film. Mitchum did so on a break from filming War and Remembrance (1988). See more »
