Planet of the Apes
Well, you know what they say. Human see, human do.
Fun trivia: Ever think that Planet of the Apes is kind of like an extended episode of The Twilight Zone? Well, there’s a reason. Rod Serling, the creator of The Twilight Zone, wrote the screenplay for it with Michael Wilson (It’s a Wonderful Life, Lawrence of Arabia), based on the book by Pierre Boulle.
Of course, Rod Serling was most recognizable for his role as the host of The Twilight Zone – you know, that guy with the very. precise. voice. who appeared suddenly at the beginning of each episode to introduce the story? Yep, he helped write the screenplay for Planet of the Apes. Intriguing, isn’t it…
Wait, is that a signpost up ahead? (sorry, couldn’t resist)
