Make-up of the Planet of the Apes

No, this isn’t the title of the next installment of the Apes franchise, but rather a cool home video of the late Roddy McDowall receiving his make-up for the 1968 original. Added to the visuals is a little of the film score which works surprisingly well in this context.

If you make it to 8:45 in the video, you’ll then be treated with more of McDowall’s home movies, giving yet more behind-the-scenes footage from the film.
