The Apocalypse Now (1979, artwork by Bob Peak) is a very popular poster.  The original is 27 1/8” x 41 1/8”, has a distinct red tone, and is “full bleed,” i.e. the artwork extends to the edge:

In addition to the obvious fakes of this poster (odd or small size, “fuzzy” printing, etc.), watch out for the late 1980s re-release/reissue poster.   The re-release is very easy to distinguish since it features prominent white borders around the edges and the color scheme is less red.  (There is no question this is a re-release since it has the late 1980s United Artists logo, see the red arrow below.)
