There was a team of over eighty make-up artists working on Planet of the Apes. The head of this team was John Chambers. Before filming began, he trained every make-up artists how to specially do the make-up for the apes. Because there were so many extras and actors who needed to have the ape make-up on, and because the make-up took such an extremely long time to apply, none of the actors or extras were allowed to remove the make-up until the shooting day was over.
