Smile!
— The Gorilla Photographer

The Gorilla Photographer takes a picture of the Hunt Leader and two of his colleagues, standing over the corpses of the humans they have just killed during the hunt. As such, he is the first ape we hear speaking ("Smile!").

NotesEdit

  • Bob Lombardo also played Marcus. It's possible that the photographer and Marcus are the same character.
  • In the 2011 novel Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes, it is revealed that Marcus and the photographer are half-brothers, sons of Digby.
  • 'The Ape' promo newspaper used in publicity at the time refers to him as "famed Ape cameraman Simka, on an assignment with the Gorilla guards".[1]
