Bit part in a legendary film
Now known as a leading man, Ford played a small role in Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece about the Vietnam War, 'Apocalypse Now' (1979). As Colonel Lucas, he sent a group of soldiers to hunt down and eliminate Colonel Kurtz, who has clearly lost the plot. "This mission does not exist. It will never have existed," he told them in the movie that brought the Vietnam War to the public.
