MAKING OF PLANET OF THE APES HC
(W) J. W. Rinzler
Based on Pierre Boulle's novel La Planete de Singes, the original Planet of the Apes was one of the most iconic films of the 1960s. Starring Hollywood stalwarts Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowell, the movie captivated audiences and sparked a franchise. Now, five decades after its theatrical release, Jonathan Rinzler tells the thrilling story of this legendary Hollywood classic, a film the book's author thought would be impossible to make. With a foreword by Fraser Heston, Charlton Heston's son, The Complete Making of the Planet of the Apes is an entertaining experience that transports readers to the elusive alternate earth ruled by apes. Rinzler draws on material from a variety of sources, including early publications and interviews, Fox and Warner Bros.' studio archives, and records from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
