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!
- 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.
