EXCERPT: COLIN LIDDELL ON THE ORIGINAL "PLANET OF THE APES"



The Planet of the Apes franchise is back in the news with a new film, War For the Planet of the Apes, being released shortly. In this short excerpt Alternative Right Chief Editor Colin Liddell discusses the original film series, which ran from 1968 to 1973, with the help of Richard Wolstencroft and Andy Nowicki.

Made in 1968, the original film was very much a reflection of its period, with the ape society portrayed in the movie serving as a metaphor of an America engaged in the Vietnam War and deeply divided as a consequence. 

The excerpt is taken from Podcast 52: Cold Pizza Planet of the Oscars, recorded earlier this year.

Chimps channeling the 1960s "counter-culture."

  1. Planet of the Apes used to be my favorite science fiction franchise for a while, and back at college, I was part of a club where we watched the original five films in a single day. It took about 9 1/2 hours.

  2. I recall being very impressed with your take on the Planet of the Apes series. It's definitely something thatyou should follow up on, at least in the form of an article. For that matter, if Jay Dyer can do well with his ESOTERIC HOLLYWOOD book, why can't you publish something dealing with Alt-Right themes in cheesy exploitation movies?

  3. People re realising what is going on. Interesting that influential Jews have brought this on their own people. https://www.facebook.com/InfidelWContact/?fref=nf
