Charlton Heston & Kim Hunter Signed Planet of the Apes Display

Somewhere in the Universe, there must be something better than man!

 

This great display from the iconic Planet of the Apes features a great scene from the film together with the signatures of two of the stars of the golden age of Hollywood - Charlton Heston and Kim Hunter - who played George Taylor and Zira respectively.  The display has been professionally double matted using acid free materials  to a size of 16x12 inches.

 

In the year 3978A.D. a spaceship with a crew of 4 crashes down on a distant planet. One of the crew members had died in space and the other 3 head out to explore the planet. They soon learn that the planet is much like their own. They then find the planet is inhabited by intelligent apes. One of the men is shot and killed and the others are taken to the apes' city. There, one undergoes brain surgery and is put into a state of living death. The other (Charlton Heston) befriends some of the apes but is feared by most. After being put through ape trial he escapes with a female human native to the planet. After helping his ape friends escape a religious heresy trial he escapes out into the wilderness with the female. There he learns the planet might not be so distant after all...

 

With features chiseled in stone, who else but Heston could you picture as Michelangelo, as Ben-Hur, as Moses? Heston's movie career took off with "The Greatest Show on Earth" and reached light speed with "Ben-Hur". Although Heston has played a pantheon of larger-than-life roles, he usually prefers to talk about the day- to-day daily grind of the movie business, and especially credits the writers and directors he has worked for much of his success. Though aging gracefully, the venerated Heston has lately been more interested in promoting causes than acting. He will forever be regarded as a true acting legend though - and this will make a great addition to any autograph collection.

Loosely adapted from the novel by French author Pierre Boulle, Planet of the Apes was released at the height of racial and political unrest in America, adding resonance to its story of a NASA astronaut (Charlton Heston) stranded on a planet where superior apes dominate inferior human slaves. The film's final image--in which a horrified Heston realizes the fate of humankind--remains one of the most indelible in all of science fiction cinema - and features prominently in this premium display.

 

 This is Commander Taylor, Astronaut. He has landed in a world where Apes are the rulers and Man the beast. Now he is caged, tortured, risks mutilation. Because no human can remain human on, The Planet of the Apes.
