Planet Of The Apes

11:05pm Wednesday, May 11 on F4

Charlton Heston plays astronaut George Taylor, who is caught in a time warp and lands on a planet where apes rule, gorillas act as the army and humans are considered a sub-species. Taylor’s power of speech makes him the subject of curiosity and experimentation that could prove fatal, but he escapes with Nova (Linda Harrison) into the Forbidden Zone where, in one of cinema’s most iconic moments, he confronts the true nature of the Planet of the Apes. With Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter and Maurice Evans. Directed by Franklin Schaffner. And if men and women in monkey suits is your kind of thing, make sure to tune in tomorrow for a further triple-helping from the Planet of the Apes series.
