Planet of the Apes (Franklin J. Schaffner, 1968). Watching it again now it’s not hard to imagine how much it made an impression on my ten-year-old mind, especially seeing it on a big screen at that age. Some of it works well, some of it creaks, but I have to say the world it describes sounds more like the ignorant, superstitious one we live in today than the one born of the 1960s. Or so it seems right now. Also: the “funny” lines sound like somebody was trying to anticipate the eventual Mad magazine parody and beat ‘em to the punch.
