“This is Commander Taylor, Astronaut. He has landed in a world where Apes are the rulers and Man the beast. Now he is caged, tortured, risks mutilation. Because no human can remain human on the Planet of the Apes.”
It’s not often I get a poster in that makes me go WOW ! Well this original 1968 UK quad is such a poster. The film is a personal favourite of mine and this poster is truly the best I have ever seen; absolutely exquisite. Considered the best design for the title it features four character panels – Charlton Heston (Taylor), Buck Tartalian (Julius), Linda Harrison (Nova) & Maurice Evans (Dr. Zaius) offset against an outer space background. The colours are stunning, deep & unfaded. “Planet of the Apes” is considered one of the pivotal sci-fi movies ever made and this original UK quad is presented in exceptional condition and would provide an incredible corner-stone addition to any movie fan’s collection. I doubt there is another out there in such fine condition…a true investment condition item of outstanding original film movie memorabilia.
Trivia: At one of the first test screenings, a woman walked up to Charlton Heston and asked him how he was. Heston had no clue who she was until she revealed that she was Kim Hunter. He simply hadn’t recognized her as he hadn’t seen her outside of her ape make-up.…more detail
