What is the most deliciously nostalgic film scene of the 60s? Hands up for Planet of the Apes, when Charlton Heston finds the Statue of Liberty on the beach.*
We can all sympathise with Charlton’s bittersweet emotions as he punches the sand with his fist. He treasures fond memories of a happy former life, but his dreams of returning home have taken a sharp turn for the worse.
The evil apes have somehow travelled to Earth, stolen the Statue of Liberty and then callously dumped it on their own God-forsaken planet.
