A gift from my good pal Dae, this book had been on my wish list for quite a while. It tells the complete story of the making of the Planet of the Apes movies (and I've been an Apes fan forever!), all the way up to the disappointing remake. It includes great photos and extensive background material, such as summarizing each plot as it became refined into a script - the storylines that were abandoned are amazing! There's tons of information about the makeup, the actors, and just about anything else you can imagine - once I started reading, I couldn't put this book down!
