CONQUEST OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
   Film (1972). Apjac/20th Century-Fox. Dir J. Lee Thompson, starring Roddy McDowall, Don Murray, Natalie Trundy, Hari Rhodes. Screenplay Paul Dehn, based on characters created by Pierre BOULLE. 86 mins. Colour.
   This was the fourth in the ever-weakening series of films beginning in 1968 with PLANET OF THE APES. Caesar (McDowall), the ape born in ESCAPE FROM THE PLANET OF THE APES (1971), is being kept in a circus but comes to resent the human exploitation of apes so much that, with the help of a sympathetic and all too symbolic Black man (Rhodes), he incites his fellow primates to revolt. The film ends with apes victorious over humans after a bloody battle, thus laying the ground for the future situation (there has been a time-warp) of Planet of the Apes. All this is crudely simplistic. The novelization is Conquest of the Planet of the Apes * (1974) by John JAKES.
