Scanning the press release of the upcoming 4 disc Ultra HD set for Apocalypse Now: The Final Cut I noticed there's a featurette tucked away on the supplementary disc that looks at the infamous, deleted monkey sampan scene. If you haven't had access to tape traders and their unofficial, workprint copies of the film (or, in this era of digital duplication, the ability to navigate to YouTube), the three-minute scene occurs just before the gunboat reaches Kurtz's compound, giving the crew a quick heads up on the kind of madness and horror they are about to submerge into.
