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 »

A very touching and uplifting movie, regardless of what PETA says...
I really enjoyed this movie, despite what cynics, bigots and critics say, who can't appreciate a drama that stands on it's own two feet.
It may be regarded as a "chick flick," but it's designed for those who have a heart, who have feelings. I saw this movie as a kid and recently bought it on DVD; I enjoy it now, just as much as I did when I was younger.
I realize that what was done in this movie has been done already in real life years ago, by the US Air Force, but this is a movie--it should be taken lightly as one.
The soundtrack is important in most movies and does great justice to this one. You'd have to appreciate composers of classical music, such as Horner, to appreciate this one. The acting was good and the chimps steal about half of the scenes because it's mostly about them.
I wonder how PETA felt about this movie. I just don't want to hear or read about them whining about anyone harming the chimps...
