Synopsis by Rob Ferrier

This documentary takes a look back at the making of Planet of the Apes. Not just a campy sci-fi thriller, the film was also an expression of sublimated fears of a world wracked by the Cold War. Special attention is paid to the makeup that made viewers forget they were watching people in ape costumes. Scattered throughout are interviews with cast members like Charlton Heston and scenes that never made it up from the cutting room floor.
