PLANET OF THE APES ORIGINAL TAYLOR ASTRONAUT COSTUME (CHARLTON HESTON)

Updated: September 19, 2023

An astronaut costume as seen worn by Charlton Heston in the role of "George Taylor" in the classic sci-fi film, Planet of the Apes ( 20th Century Fox, 1968 ).

Displayed on a life-size custom mannequin of Heston with a wooden gun in his hands and custom-made boots. Morton Haack designed costumes for the film, which follows a group of astronauts who crash-land on a mysterious planet on which apes are the dominant species bent on exterminating the human race.

The costume comprises an intentionally damaged astronaut uniform, provided by Western Costume Company: one zip-up white tunic with torn sleeves featuring an "ANSA" chest patch and one pair of matching pants with zipper-pockets ( the gun and boots are not from the production ). The mannequin features high-quality silicone skin with glass eyes and realistic, hand-placed hair ( on the head, face, chest, and arms ).

Heston can be seen wearing a uniform of this type following his crash-landing and prior to his being fitted with slave attire. When Taylor and his fellow scientists remove their uniforms to swim nude in a waterfall pool, the animalistic future-humans steal the garments and tear them to pieces. Item measures 74 x 38 x 28 inches.

Value: $10,000.
