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 Burghart', who played Dr. Jack Scott on "One Life at a Time" and the smallest female chimp, Daisy, was voiced by 'Annie Lockhart' of "Battleship Gallactica" fame. Norman B. Schwartz was the vocal effects director. See more »

Much to my surprise, it was easy to like this film. All of the primates did a great job, and although some scenes were a little hard to believe, the overall story had a good message and many terrific moments, especially towards the end. It was a very funny film at times, but for me, the more dramatic moments worked the best. A very enjoyable experience.
