Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr. Zira: [to Dr. Dixon] You're the second human I have kissed. Cornelius: [to Dr. Branton] And you are the first.
  • Dr. Lewis Dixon: Can you read a map? Cornelius: I'm an archaeologist. I can even draw one!
  • Tailor: May I measure your inside leg, sir? Cornelius: No.
  • Chairman of the President's Committee of Inquiry: [testing Lewis's assertion that the apes can speak] What is your name? Dr. Zira: Zira. Chairman of the President's Committee of Inquiry: One might as well be talking to a parrot. Dr. Zira: A parrot? Chairman of the President's Committee of Inquiry: What did I tell you? Mechanical mimicry. Unique in an ape, vocally, without a doubt, but... does the other one talk? Cornelius: Only when she lets me.
  • Dr. Zira: Because I loathe bananas!
Movie Trivia:
  • The film's villain, Dr. Hasslein, had been briefly mentioned at the beginnings of Planet of the Apes (1968) and Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970).
  • Sal Mineo found the make-up uncomfortable, so the script was re-written to kill his character off earlier than planned. This was Mineo's final theatrical film.
  • The third of five Planet of the Apes movies starring Roddy McDowall and Kim Hunter.
