1975-onward... THE PLANET OF THE APES "UNSAGA" ("ANTI-SAGA"...?) And some call it ''POTA''... ha! Proof that any actor can be a star and carry an entire franchise - given the proper vehicle and appropriate amounts of make-up wizardry...! (Yeah - that is a jab at the effeminate, late, "great" Roddy McDowell...! He was cool in Fright Night too, sure, but...!)
He's CORNELIUS - no ''Caesar''
sorry - discontinued!
TAYLOR - the likeness of the also
late, ''great'' (but not effeminate -
is well-rendered indeed...
He who was, also, Moses and Ben Hur...
The star of a sci-fi film, too...
AND, BELOW... ZIRA.
Kim Hunter's most recognized role -
too bad it was when she was at her
She who had co-starred with Brando
in A Streetcar Named Desire...
and won an Oscar and Golden Globe
for her troubles!
(Yes - she is Stella...!)
My question is... WHERE IS BRENT?!? My favorite protagonist in this series was the guy who carried the entire "BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES" 1969 sequel on his back - up to the point where Taylor reappears... Then, it becomes Taylor versus the Apes all over again - and Brent is thanked for his services by being unceremoniously killed off (shot full of holes too, he is! Granted, mere seconds before EVERYBODY SEEMINGLY DIES... But still! I can feel bad for Brent if I want to - right? It's a free country - correct? *lol*)
Don't tell me Brent was brushed off again - frowned upon, even for a damned action figure?!? Sheesh...
