PLANET OF THE APES ORIGINAL CRUCIFIED APE COSTUME

Updated: March 27, 2005

Crucified gorilla figure from Beneath the Planet of the Apes. (TCF, 1970) This crucified gorilla figure, famously featured in a mutant-induced vision in Beneath the Planet of the Apes, is the only existing life-sized ape figure ever made for the original classic movie series. The figure is in near-mint condition, and was originally given away at an automobile trade show in 1970. It was then on display at a car dealership in Minnesota for 30 years before it was re-discovered and mounted on this stunning custom display.

The head is a foam-filled master pull of a Gorilla background mask. Because it was originally foamed in one solid piece, there has been virtually no deterioration, making this the finest example likely to be found of an original Apes background mask, married to a one-of-a-kind gorilla body and mounted on a remarkably accurate base.

Value: $12,000 - $15,000
