Things get almost interesting when MacDonald (Austin Stoker) offers Caesar a chance to see his parents. Caesar, MacDonald and Virgil (Paul Williams), an ape elder, journey to a destroyed U.S. city to find the tapes that contain interrogations of Cornelius and Zira. While the trio searches for the tapes, they encounter a posse of mutant humans, who aren't fond of apes. The hairy triumvirate hurries back to their town to prepare for an eventual encounter and badly photographed battle sequences ensue!
The film is produced by Arthur P. Jacobs (of Doctor Dolittle fame) and Frank Capra Jr. (do you think his father ever understood?). Director J. Lee Thompson had worked with Jacobs on the producer's first picture, What a Way to Go and also did The Guns of Navarone before throwing his lot in with the Apes, beginning with Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.
