PLANET OF THE APES ORIGINAL JULIUS COSTUME

Updated: March 27, 2005

"Julius" costume and display from Planet of the Apes. (TCF, 1968) The cigar-chomping, hose-wielding Julius the cagekeeper, who famously tells Charlton Heston, "Shut up, you freak!" before blasting him with high-powered spray, is one of the most memorable of all Apes characters. As played by actor Buck Kartalian, Julius is a comic figure - alternately threatening and dimwitted - and with a very distinctive look.

This figure features a custom steel and foam body with silicone hands and hand-punched human hair, holding an antique brass firehose nozzle. The silicone head was developed from the only known copy of Kartalian's makeup, and also features hand-punched human hair along with prosthetics-grade glass eyes. The costume is one of only two Julius "hero" outfits to have survived from the original Planet of the Apes film, and features his named tunic with leather glyph, pants and boots. The entire costume and display is mounted on a custom wooden base.
