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 »
As Virgil is taxiing the O-2 toward the runway the AP radios airport security that the aircraft is headed down taxiway 3. At all airports taxiways are lettered, not numbered. Numbers are used only for runways. See more »
We have the most charming and endearing non-human character in the history of cinema. Lassie, Benji or even Toto couldn't hold a burning piece of blue wax to the impossible not to love Virgil. We have two lead actors with enough charisma to hold their own, while maintaining the quiet humility necessary not to upstage the simian lead. We have many genuine laughs and just as many heartfelt tears. We have characters, human and non, that we love and care about. We have genuine and sincere passion and emotion. We have a powerful political statement and a film that's actually about something.
My affection and personal attachment for the musical, THE PRODUCERS is well known by everyone who knows me well. However, this not so well known gem is truly Matthew's shining masterpiece!
