The Ape who said "No"!

Roddy McDowall and Ricardo Montalban star in this fourth chapter of the legendary "Apes" series.

Set in the near future, the story takes palce after a mysterious disease from space has killed off Earth's dogs and cats. In their place, apes have become household pets. Though their intelligence has quickly elevated them to the position of servants and errand-runners, humans show no appreciation of the apes, treating them like slaves. But among the cowering creatures is one advanced ape from the future. Caesar (McDowall) suffers one cruel indignity on top of anther until he leads a spectacular revolt of his fellow apes against their cruel human masters.


With its colorful futuristic sets, fast pace and action-packed climax, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes is a thrilling science-fiction adventure that offers both a serious message and stirring entertainment for all.
