This awesome vintage movie tee was made by the company Serial Killer in the 90s and the shirt features a graphic and quote from the 1979 war film, Apocalypse Now. The movie was directed by Francis Ford Coppola and adapted from the novella Heart of Darkness written by Joseph Conrad. Against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, the movie tells the story of American soldier, Captain Benjamin L. Willard as he journeys into Cambodia to assassinate a renegade Green Beret, Colonel Kurtz who has been deemed insane.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest films ever made, Apocalypse Now was nominated for eight Academy Awards and starred Martin Sheen and Marlon Brando as Willard and Kurtz. The movie won the award for Best Cinematography at the 1980 Academy Awards and was later selected for preservation in the US National Film Registry.

The subordinate is wary that Vietcong may be lurking nearby but Kilgore insists the beach is safe via the now famous line.
