Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall star in this legendary science fiction masterpiece. Astronaut Taylor (Heston) crash lands on a distant planet ruled by apes who use a primitive race of humans for experimentation and sport. Soon Taylor finds himself among the hunted, his life in the hands of a benevolent chimpanzee scientist (McDowall). Winner of an Honorary Academy Award for Outstanding Make-up Achievement, Planet Of The Apes is grand entertainment from its visually arresting beginning to the chilling last moment.


Beneath The Planet Of The Apes (1969)

In the acclaimed sequel to Planet Of The Apes, another astronaut (James Franciscus) crashes through the time barrier searching for Taylor (Charlton Heston). The daring rescue mission leads to a subterranean city where mutant humans, who practice mind control, worship a weapon capable of destroying the entire planet. Both an action-oriented sci-fi adventure and a wry commentary on today's world, this second Apes installment is imaginative entertainment for fantasy buffs of all ages.


Escape From The Planet Of The Apes (1971)

Roddy McDowall and Kim Hunter reprise their roles form the original Planet Of The Apes in this third chapter of the Apes saga. Two intelligent simians from the future, Cornelius and Zira, travel to present-day Earth. They become instant sensations, wined and dined and treated like celebrities -- until a high-level plot forces them to run for their lives! Featuring Ricardo Montalban and Sal Mineo, it's a delightful blend of humor, social commentary and suspense.


Conquest Of The Planet Of The Apes (1972)

Colorful, futuristic sets, a relentless pace and an action-packed climax highlight the fourth episode of the legendary Apes saga. The time is the near future. Apes have replaced dogs and cats as household pets, and servants as personal assistants -- until their continual mistreatment provokes one advanced ape from the future, Caesar, to lead a spectacular revolt. Starring Roddy McDowall and Ricardo Montalban, it's thrilling science fiction that delivers both a serious message and stirring entertainment.


Battle For The Planet Of The Apes (1973)

Roddy McDowall and Claude Akins star in the final chapter of the legendary Apes saga. Set in 2001 A.D., an idyllic society of man and ape is threatened by both a militant gorilla (Akins) and a tribe of still-intelligent mutant humans. Finally, simmering tensions dividing the primates erupt in an apocalyptic climax. When the smoke clears, the carnage is everywhere, but there is hope for a new beginning for man and ape.

Yeah, the first one was an absolute favourite of mine when I was smaller. As you say, some bits were just spectacular, and stayed in your mind forever, such as the Statue of Liberty scene. I watched the recent re-make, just for the craic, knowing it wasn't going to be so great after reading the reviews. I was sorely disappointed by the end - a stupid ape/monkey version of some blokes statue - I admit I still don't know who it was. The Statue of Liberty is a worldwide icon, known everywhere - and for then to chage that part was the ultimate disappointment.
