I must be getting old. I just looked back at the 1968 version and I am convinced that it is better than the remake. Even more it seems to me that the remake of rise of planet of the apes adds up nicely to the 68 version and not to the remake of planet of the apes. For in the remake of rise a virus smartens apes on earth and kills men on earth. Hence it is no longer needed to send up a smartened ape in space which is done in the remake of planet of the apes. What is inexcusable though is I watched Burke more closely than Linda Harrison. I did not know she played Wonder Woman later on by the way. For whom not haven't seen it yet: skip the remake and watch the 68 version. Pay SPECIAL attention to Linda Harrison for she is worth it. Here is the dame in distress.
