During the famously chaotic filming of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now, another director was at work on the set: Documentary director Eleanor Coppola, the auteur's wife. Her footage, along with cast and crew interviews shot a decade later, became the celebrated documentary Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse, which premiered on the Showtime cable channel in 1991. (This interview first aired on Jan. 24, 1992.)
Eleanor Coppola filmed a documentary called "Hearts of Darkeness." It's a behind-the-scenes view of the making of "Apocalypse Now." Coppola is the wife of director Frances Ford Coppola. (REBROADCAST. Originally aired 1/24/92) "Apocalypse Now," has just come out on video; "Hearts of Darkness," will be released on home video next week.
