Overview
Roddy McDowall and Kim Hunter reprise their roles from the orginal Planet of the Apes in this third chapter of the Apes saga. Two intelligent simians from the future, Cornelius and Zira, travel to present-day Earth. They become instant sensations, wined and dined and treated like celebrities—until a high-level plot forces them to run for their lives! Featuring Ricardo Montalban and Sal Mineo, it's a delightful blend of humor, social commentary and suspense.
