Wasn't Planet Of The Apes series of movies scheduled?

The 3rd entry Escape from the Planet of the Apes although intriguing and very entertaining simply is not believable. No way that ape scientist Dr. Milo, who gets knocked off by a gorilla, could have figured out our superior human technology enough for the three of them to have travel back in time to the 20th century let alone raise that spaceship from their inland sea. The 2 follow-ups just waste too much time running down us humans although I do enjoy Don Murray sticking it to Caesar with *"When we look at you, we see ourselves!*" Too much self-criticism always was the problem with the planet of the apes movies.

*Detroit connection:*

 

 

BILL BONDS, a long time favorite of Detroit's WXYZ TV station's news team, before his tenure in Detroit, appeared in one of the "APES" movies as an LA newscaster. Here, Bonds was controversial, acerbic, and a public favorite, and once, on air, challenged then Detroit mayor Coleman Young to a boxing match.

 

 

Another Detroit connection to movies is the same station's DIANA LEWIS, who before her Detroit tenure, appeared in *Rocky* . She was the news reporter who held up Balboa's bloody fist after he beat the crap out of a side of beef at the packing plant Paulie worked at. Her daughter GLENDA has taken her place at the station since her retirement. She too was a well loved personality in these parts.
