THE PLANET OF THE APES (1968)
Celebrating The 50th Anniversary
A TRIBUTE TO OSCAR®-NOMINATED PRODUCTION DESIGNER WILLIAM J. CREBER ADG
The Egyptian Theatre, Hollywood
Sunday, June 24, 2018 at 5:30pm

Production Designer WILLIAM CREBER, nominated for three Oscars, is virtually the last of the Golden Age Production Designers. He is best known for his designs for PLANET OF THE APES as well as THE POSEIDEN ADVENTURE and THE TOWERING INFERNO, among many others.  

Celebrating its 50th Anniversary as a science-fiction classic, PLANET OF THE APES garnered two Oscar-nominations and combines sensational high adventure, "thinking man's" science fiction, and social commentary.

The film became a critical and commercial hit, and has spawned three sequels, a television show, a 90s remake, three acclaimed re-imaginings and a myriad of product tie-ins. William Creber’s sets for the original film, principally Ape City, set a high bar and have not aged a day in fifty years. ...Read More
 
PLANET OF THE APES was scripted by Rod Serling, famed creator of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, and directed by Oscar-winner Franklin J. Schaffner (Lionheart, Papillon, Patton).

PLANET OF THE APES maroons three astronauts on a desolate wasteland planet. Finding their way to a lush valley they encounter a tribe of mute, backward humans just as they are suddenly attacked by fierce, rifle-carrying gorillas on horseback -- a human hunting expedition. 

Taylor (Charlton Heston), the lead astronaut, is injured in the attack; now rendered mute, he is taken to a nightmarish Ape City and thrown into a human zoo.  Surrounded by apes walking upright and speaking English, Taylor is befriended by a sympathetic chimpanzee scientist -- whom he hopes might help him escape.
