Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr. Zaius: You ask me to help you? Man is evil! Capable of nothing but destruction!
  • Cornelius: They will dissect you! And they will kill you! In that order!
  • Ursus: The only good human... is a dead human!
  • Cornelius: If you are caught by the gorillas, you must remember one thing. John Brent: What's that? Cornelius: Never to speak! John Brent: What the hell would I have to say to a gorilla?
  • Dr. Zira: Gorillas are cruel because they're stupid! All bone and no brain!
Movie Trivia:
  • The only film in the original series of five that does not star Roddy McDowall, who was committed to another project. Archive footage of McDowall as Cornelius is played at the start, and David Watson plays the character in the film proper. Despite this, McDowall is often pictured on video and DVD packaging for this film.
  • Orson Welles was offered the role of General Ursus, which he turned down. Burt Reynolds was considered for the lead role of John Brent before James Franciscus was cast due to his resemblance to Charlton Heston. Don Medford agreed to direct the movie, but walked out after the budget was halved.
  • An early draft of the script, called "Planet of the Men", and written by Pierre Boulle in his native French, featured a messianic Taylor 14 years after the events of the 1968 original. It involved an uprising against the apes, following which they revert back to their primal states.
  • Due to the smaller budget of this film, many of the extras cast as apes wore masks instead of the famous ape make up.
  • This was the first appearance of Natalie Trundy in the "Apes" series. She is the only person to play both a human and an ape in the series.
