1966 Studio Pitch (Part 2)

In early March 1966, Arthur P. Jacobs produced a nine-minute “studio pitch” in an attempt to gain funding for his fledgling film project Planet Of The Apes
The last six minutes of the presentation was a live-action sequence featuring Edward G. Robinson as Dr Zaius and Charlton Heston as Thomas, with James Brolin as Cornelius and Linda Harrison as Zira. The footage successfully showed that actors in ape make-up (here designed by Ben Nye) could be credible to audiences.
