Apocalypse Now (1979)
A former Napa High student reports: "The sound effects were done at Memorial Stadium using Napa High School students. We did a lot of yelling as a group for the riot scene with the USO. Several students were then kept after the group was released and were taped running on the steps and the grass with and without shoes."
Some exterior shots were also done in the valley.
