24:40 Planet of the Apes 3979HT

Why is it called the Forbidden Zone? No one knows. That's never a good reason.

I love how Cornelius and Zira know all along that they have to follow the truth as evidenced by Taylor, but Zaius struggles stubbornly with his religion vs. science and deciding what to do. And in the end, he'll be a prick (I have a feeling).

Taylor is a GREAT SHOT with that rifle.

Whenever anybody says Dr. Zaius, we usually lapse into "Dr. Zaius, Dr. Zaius", to the tune of "Rock Me, Amadeus".

Linda Harrison was 21 or 22 when this was filmed.

If Edward G. Robinson had been Zaius, his dialog would have had to be different. This wouldn't have worked for him.

And the big, big, BIG finish. "We finally really did it."
