Cast: Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter, Maurice Evans.
Based on the novel by Pierre Boulle, a spaceship crew commanded by Col. George Taylor (Charlton Heston) emerge from hibernation to find they have crash-landed on an unknown planet. The four survivors explore their new world, searching for the basics of survival, food and water. Soon, they discover that their new home is inhabited. There are other humans, but they are mute and treated like cattle by the dominant species. On this planet, evolution has favoured the apes, who have developed into the walking, talking, thinking rulers of a society where tolerance is minimal, and superstition is valued over science...
