The Unofficial Oral History of Planet of the Apes

by Joe Russo, Larry Landsman & Edward Gross

Foreword by Charlton Heston


Twenty-three years after the publication of the critically acclaimed Planet of the Apes Revisited, authors Joe Russo, Larry Landsman and Edward Gross are back with the two-volume The Unofficial Oral History of the Planet of the Apes, a completely revised, thoroughly expanded definitive look at the world of the Apes from 1963 to the present.

These books are filled with hundreds of exclusive cast and crew interviews, unprecedented access to the archives of producer Arthur P. Jacobs, shooting schedules, rare photos and much more, all of which take you behind-the-scenes of the 10 films in the series and the two television shows they inspired, and presented in the actors and filmmakers’ own words.

Volume I covers 1963 to 1973, from the publication of Pierre Boulle’s original novel through the development process of the first film and, then, the comprehensive making of Planet, Beneath, Escape, Conquest and Battle. It also features a foreword by actor Charlton Heston.

Volume II, which spans from 1974 to 2024, is coming soon from Bearmanor Media.
