Film and sound reel canister number 769 from Francis Ford Coppola's war drama Apocalypse Now. A soldier in the Vietnam war (Martin Sheen) was sent up river with secret orders to assassinate a rogue colonel (Marlon Brando) who saw himself as a deity.
This circular gray metal film canister consists of two halves which separate around the circumference and was originally used to store elements from the film. One of the halves is affixed with a circular sticker placed over the brand label from the Technicolor facility in Rome, Italy identifying it as "APOCALYPSE NOW RULLO N 769." This half also features the number "6" hand-written in white. This canister is in good overall condition with some discoloration from age throughout and some fading on some of the text on the sticker.
