Trivia: Charlton Heston is shot in the throat and captured by the apes. During his healing in captivity, Dr. Zira nicknames him "Bright Eyes," because of his obvious intelligence. A year earlier, when Charlton Heston appeared in the western "Will Penny," Heston's pack-horse was also named "Bright Eyes" in the film.
