These photographs were taken on the set of the 1968 film Planet of the Apes. It’s really bizarre to see these simians just relaxing in full ape makeup between shooting scenes. These 1967 behind the scenes pictures were shot in California and show the apes smoking, eating, drinking, relaxing in the shade and doing other very human things.
It’s kind of amazing that they could do anything in those masks when not filming. They don’t even seem to mind all that much. Of course this film had a score of big name actors who were all professionals.
