Roddy McDowall
With the Retroist publishing the Planet of the Apes Podcast today it seemed like a good time to share this home video of Roddy McDowall’s from back on May 31, 1965.

In this silent video you will see the likes of Polly Bergen, Lauren Bacall, Tuesday Weld, Anthony Perkins, Dominick Dunne, Suzanne Pleshette, Judy Garland, Rock Hudson, Anthony Perkins, David O. Selznick, and more.

They all seem to be enjoying a day at the beach and thanks to McDowall we and future generations can enjoy this behind the curtain look at some of our favorite celebrities.

  1. You don’t need to be a life-long lip-reader to know what Anthony Perkins says to the camera at around 3:40.

    Also, all those Marley’s being smoked, looks like a cigarette commercial. It’s amazing to me, watching videos like this, how anachronistic smoking is becoming. Soon it will be as dated as starched collars.
