a movie about a man in a city of talking apes,
but the subtext also served as an allegory to the
civil rights movement of the 1960s.
• The man hired to design the ape makeup for
the movie was John Chambers. After World
War II ended, Chambers worked at a veterans
hospital where he helped design prosthetics and
facial restorations for disfigured soldiers. He
made a name for himself by working on shows
including “The Munsters,” “The Outer Lim-

designed Spock’s ears.
• The makeup for the movie cost less than
$500,000 out of the total budget of $5 million,
but producers made everyone think that it cost a
million because they thought it was good PR—
and it was.
• At its height, the movie’s production required
around 100 makeup artists, wardrobe workers,
and hairstylists to be on set to get all of the apes
in costume and ready. For some of the larger
scenes, there were around 200 actors to get in
full ape garb. When the production started, it
