I've been cycling back and forth between viewings of Apocalypse Now and Finian's Rainbow. I can't wrap my head around the fact that the same guy directed both. AN was the most influential movie of my late teens and early twenties.

I've watched both so many times, now, that I'm starting to swap sections of each in my head. Think of certain scenes from AN with "Look to the Rainbow" from FR.

"Look. Look. Look to the rainbow.
Follow the fella' who follows a dream."

Goofing aside, I stumbled on this on Youtube. I'm glad someone put it on:

Shortly after this film was released, the end of the new Hollywood era was upon the land... actor/musician Kris Kristofferson was the lead in HEAVEN'S GATE and witnessed the excess that bankrupted a studio. Upon learning that the collective authority figures of the corporations that gained control of the studios would never again fund such productions, never again trust the "creative types" with that sort of freedom and money ever again, he quipped, "Well, what are they going to do now, give it all to the UNcreative types?"

Indeed.
