An Air Force pilot joins a top secret military experiment involving chimps, but begins to suspect there might be something more to the mysterious "Project X".
As the emotional sounds that chimps make do not in any way resemble those of humans, it was decided to create their vocalizations using actors. Every chimp sound in the picture, other than one very brief outburst, is ADR. The role of Goliath, the giant ape, was voiced by the African-American actor Arthur Burghardt, who played Dr. Jack Scott on One Life to Live (1968) and the smallest female chimp, Daisy, was voiced by Anne Lockhart of Battlestar Galactica (1978) fame. Norman B. Schwartz was the vocal effects director.
So I'm the new 'Lord Of The Apes'.
