Planet of the Apes
I of course am referring to the 1968 original version of the film. Planet of the Apes was one of the most surprising delights I have ever discovered. I had heard the film was hokey, mostly due to costuming, but I was completely blown away by this film. Charlton Heston lives up to his tough guy image. He lands on a strange planet sometime in the very distant future to find that the Apes are the intelligent beings performing experiments on humans. If you like Sci-fi at all, you will really enjoy this film. The score is also enchanting and Kim Hunter's performance, endearing.
