I loved the original Planet of the Apes. There were so many funny lines. One of the most memorable and famous was spoken by Julius, the gorilla soldier in charge of security at the animal hospital. He told astronaut George Taylor, played by Charlton Heston, to “Shut up, you freak!” before dousing him with a firehose.

This unused foam appliance was created for the film but not used, which accounts for its condition. The appliance is displayed, as it was on the set, on a vacuformed lifemask of the actor portraying the character to help retain its shape. The makeup artist, John Chambers, kept it in his own collection and gifted it to his sister. It is two parts. For a few photos I separated the two parts enough to show that even the teeth are depicted quite realistically.

Size: Approximately 12" by 8" by 6".

Marked: "BK" for Buck Kartalian, who played Julius.

Condition: Very Good.

Circa: 1968.

Provenance: Julien's Auctions.

Item ID: A5845
