PLANET OF THE APES ORIGINAL CHIMPANZEE MASK
Original full-head chimpanzee background mask from Planet of the Apes. (TCF,
1968) This original full-head chimpanzee background mask is made of latex
with original hand-set hair, and still retains the original Velcro backflap.
In absolutely pristine condition! This mask was acquired directly from the
family of Dan Streipeke, the make-up department supervisor who worked
directly underneath John Chambers on the film. Full chimp masks are
exceedingly rare, and this superb example, in mint and virtually unused
condition, is especially desirable. A fantastic artifact from the film.
