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,
