Planet of the Apes

<b>"Planet of the Apes"</b><br>
<br>
Remarkably fun, entertaining sci-fi adventure based on the Pierre Boulle novel about three astronauts who crash land on a planet where apes rule and humans are treated like animals. Charlton Heston gives one of his best performances -- and did his first nude scene -- as Taylor, the fiesty astronaut who famously tells his captors, "Take your stinking paws off of me, you damn dirty apes." John Chambers created the state-of-the-art makeup for the actors who played the apes, including Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter and Maurice Evans. Jerry Goldsmith penned the evocative score, and Franklin Schaffner provided the near flawless direction. And, of course, the final scene is one of the most memorable put on screen. "Apes" spawned four sequels, a live-action TV series, an animated series and the dreadful 2001 remake by Tim Burton.
