Planet of the Apes

One of the most famous movie endings of all time is that of the Planet of the Apes in 1968.

As the film ends Charlton Heston discovers the remnants of the Lady Liberty, half-submerged on the shore. Today that wouldn’t be so impressive because the ruins of New are just well known icons. But in 1968 it was probably the first time that it was used by Hollywood.

Above all it was this image, which made the film famous, much more than the quoted apes.
