Spoiler Alert #6: The Planet Of The Apes

One of the first romantic comedies that I ever saw, this simian masterpiece is best known for a shocking reveal at the end of its third act that people are still buzzing about forty years later:

The apes had built an exact scale model replica of the upper half of the Statue of Liberty on their sinister troglodyte-helmed planet.

I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we never saw that twisted masterstoke coming.

Bravo, Frankie Schaffner you magnificent bastard  Bravo.

Not Prescient,

Delvecchio you're the magnificent bastard.

Meaning that you don't know your father and you are a fantastic human being.
