In February 1968, the film “Planet of the Apes” premiered in U.S. theaters. The movie, which was adapted from Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel, “Monkey Planet,” starred Charlton Heston as an astronaut aboard a spaceship that crash-lands on a seemingly foreign, desolate planet ruled by apes.

In December of 1967, the film “Valley of the Dolls” premiered in U.S. theaters. The film was a massive production that was shot in many locations on the East and West Coast, with glamorous costumes and trendsetting hair and makeup.
