PLANET OF THE APES, THE (1968)

The Star Wars films may rule the international popularity contest for retro sci-fi franchises, but in my book PLANET OF THE APES has aged far better.  I've already placed CONQUEST on my 100 Essential list, but it would be a disservice to ignore the original, where the mythology was first introduced by the always electric mountain of manliness Charlton Heston.
