Vintage Photo Friday - Apes

I see Lytel's Coffee Shop in the background, so I know this must be the corner of Sepulveda and Washington on the edge of Culver City. That appears to be the character, Cornelius, played by Roddy McDowall, sitting on a bus bench, in full Apes make-up. There's also a big donut in the background. Maybe this is another location? Help! I know it's Los Angeles. LOVE seeing the apes in my Los Angeles.
Speaking of apes, yesterday, Larry and I visited Creature Features in Burbank to view the show, "Art of the Apes." We LOVED the art and the shop. This place is a must-see for sci-fi fans.
A few of our friends had art exhibited and for sale. We loved Shag's piece. The painting depicting Charleton Heston as lead singer in a rock band is epic.

My most fave pieces are those of artist, Lili Chin called "Red Apes Ballet." I purchased a print of the largest piece.

Lili is so talented. When I look at Lili's pieces, I'm reminded of my other favorite movie, "West Side Story." I can just hear the apes singing and leaping into the air, "When you're a Jet, you're a Jet all the way...."
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
