Today, Friday October 30, the Fox Movie Channel (USA) will show back-to-back Planet of the Apes films beginning at 6:00 AM and continuing into tommorow.

Not only will all five original Ape feature films be shown, but Fox will also telecast the films edited from episodes of the short-lived 1970s Ape TV series starring Roddy McDowall, James Naughton, and Ron Harper. These are definitely worth watching. I like the series better than the 3 later Apes movies especially to see a young Naughton (pictured at left) in his butt-hugging pants running through the countryside and grappling with those gorillas! Sorry, I digress. There will also be several telecasts of the Fox Legacy episode that tells the history of the franchise.
