Found on eBay: Escape from the Planet of the Apes!

Time for another "Found on eBay" post, with photos of cool stuff I've seen offered on eBay!

And this week, we begin with this 8mm box art for Escape from the Planet of the Apes! I know digest versions of all the Apes movies were released on 8mm, but I've never watched them. Here's the trailer from YouTube, just to get you into the mood:



As neat as the US poster art for Escape was... some of the foreign posters are even cooler, I think!

Here's the Belgium poster, for example!

And here's one from France! Note that both used the "Family portrait" of Cornelius, Zira and Caesar (Milo was a decoy, you'll recall) in the artwork, but put their own spin on the main image.

Even the German poster included that image!

But it's not included in the Italian poster... still, there are similarities between this and the German poster, so there must've been that image used in the US posters somewhere, eh?
