Daily Doodle : Cornelius

We now live in an age where every film that hits the cinemas has elements of CGO within it. Some films rely heavily on CGI with sets and even characters being created completely by computer. Over the last several years we saw the "Planet of the Apes" films rise up once more, first with Tim Burton's re-imagining and then with the new versions and Andy Serkis's movements with CGI apes. It's hard to believe that in 1968 they made the first ever "Planet of the Apes" film the hard way. Actors, costumes and plenty of incredible make up by John Chambers. Roddy McDowall appeared in four of the original five films. His performances were superb and his portrayal of Cornelius is destined to forever be a classic piece of cinema.
