Planet of the Apes

1968

Franklin J. Schaffner
Director
20th Century Fox Film Corporation
Production Company

The simian saga started here in this adaptation of Pierre Boulle's novel, Monkey Planet. Brilliantly directed by Franklin J. Schaffner who succeeds in keeping the audience off-balance throughout. Then there's Charlton Heston's full-of-piss-and-vinegar astronaut who manages to keep the whole thing credible. A classic.
