    "Apocalypse Now" Script Quote Collection. An extremely unique offering from this award-winning film, included in this lot are original, hand-written, and signed script excerpts from the most memorable scenes of the film. These excerpts have been completed in the hand of Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Milius, whose credits include "Dirty Harry", "Conan the Barbarian", "1941", and dozens of other well-known films. Nominated for an Academy Award for this very screen play, Milius has, for the first time, written out some of the most famous quotes from the film, including the now famous line "I love the smell of napalm in the morning." These signed script quotes were obtained directly by the consignor, a close associate of Mr. Milius, who received them at his Hollywood home several years ago. Also included in this lot is an original One Sheet movie poster for the film that bears Mr. Milius' credit. Cataloged and guaranteed by Startifacts.
