Starring Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter, Maurice Evans, James Whitmore, James Daly, Linda Harrison,
Robert Gunner, Lou Wagner, Woodrow Parfrey, and Buck Kartalian. Directed by Franklin J. Schaffner. Based on
Pierre Boulle's satirical novel Monkey Planet, this Arthur P. Jacobs production was in development for many years
before finally being green-lit by 20th Century Fox. Star Charlton Heston was instrumental in getting the project
launched as one of its biggest boosters. Shown here is a series of many movie posters, featuring Maurice Evans as
the venerable Doctor Zaius. The film features one of the greatest twist endings in the history of motion pictures.
