PLANET OF THE APES ORIGINAL CESAR COSTUME
Roddy McDowall "Caesar" costume and display from Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. ( TCF, 1972 ) No actor is more associated with
the classic Planet of the Apes movies and TV series than Roddy McDowall, who created the role of patriarch "Cornelius" and also his rebellious son, "Caesar", who leads an uprising of oppressed simians in arguably the finest of the four sequels, 1972's Conquest of
the Planet of the Apes.
McDowall's screen-used jumpsuit from the film is mounted on a custom-built flexible mannequin with a stunning silicon head of
"Caesar" ( made using appliances from McDowall's mold ), prosthetics-grade glass eyes and hand punched human hair, with silicon
hands holding a very accurate M-16 rifle, raised to inflict maximum damage on some human's skull! A fantastic, lifelike display featuring McDowall's screen-used jumpsuit from the film. The display stands fully 5 ft. 8 in. tall.
