The Film Fatale

Scroll to Info & Navigation

The scene at the beginning of the 1979 classic Apocalypse Now, with Martin Sheen’s Captain Willard alone in his hotel room, was completely unscripted. Sheen told the shooting crew to just let the cameras roll. The actor was actually drunk in the scene and punched the mirror, which was real glass. Sheen also began sobbing and tried to attack director Francis Ford Coppola. The crew was so disturbed by his actions that they wanted to stop shooting, but Coppola wanted to keep the cameras going (x).
