Planet of the Apes (1968)
Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall star in this legendary science fiction masterpiece. Astronaut Taylor (Heston) crash lands on a distant planet ruled by apes who use a primitive race of humans for experimentation and sport. Soon Taylor finds himself among the hunted, his life in the hands of a benevolent chimpanzee scientist (McDowall).

Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970)
In the acclaimed sequel to Planet of the Apes, another astronaut (James Franciscus) crashes through the time barrier searching for the missing Taylor. The daring rescue leads to a subterranean city where mutant humans, who practice mind control, worship a weapon capable of destroying the entire planet. Both an action-oriented science-fiction adventure and a wry commentary on today's world, it's imaginative entertainment for fantasy buffs of all ages.

Escape From the Planet of the Apes (1971)
Roddy McDowall and Kim Hunter reprise their roles from the original Planet of the Apes in this third chapter of the Apes saga. Two intelligent simians from the future, Cornelius (McDowall) and Zire (Hunter) travel to present-day Earth. They become instant sensations, wined and dined and treated like celebrities--until a high-level plot forces them to run for their lives.

Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972)
Colourful, futuristic sets, a relentless pace and an action-packed climax highlight the fourth episode of the legendary Apes saga, starring Roddy McDowall and Ricardo Montalban. The time is the near future. Apes have supplanted dogs and cats as household pets, and replaced servants as personal assistants--until their continual mistreatment provokes one advanced ape from the future, Caesar (McDowall), to lead a spectacular revolt. It's thrilling science fiction that offers both a serious message and stirring entertainment.

Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973)
Roddy McDowall and Claude Akins star in the fifth chapter of the legendary Apes saga. Set in 2670 A.D., an idyllic society of man and ape is threatened by both a militant gorilla (Akins) and a tribe of still-intelligent mutant humans. Finally, simmering tensions dividing the primates erupt in an apocalyptic climax. When the smoke clears, the carnage is everywhere, but there is hope for a new beginning for man and ape. Co-starring John Huston, Paul Williams, and Lew Ayres.

Planet of the Apes (2001)
Tim Burton's 're-imagining' of the 1968 original. Mark Wahlberg stars in Tim Burton's action-packed epic as an astronaut who crash lands onto a savage planet where talking apes rule over humans. Now he must defeat an entire gorilla army and reach a temple that holds the secrets of mankind's past... and the last hope for its salvation.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)
James Franco stars as Will Rodman, a genetic engineer working in present-day San Francisco who is performing scientific tests on apes in his attempt to find a cure for Alzheimer's. His first test subject is Caesar (Andy Serkis), the prototype of a new breed of apes with human-like intelligence. But when Caesar breaks free, a revolution is triggered and an epic war for supremacy breaks out between humankind and the primates of the world.

During the 1800s trains carried the nation's wealth throughout the east, but no one thought to rob a speeding train until 1866. In 1870 the first western train was robbed in Nevada and within hours a second train was robbed. Railroads made every alteration to their cars and changed every procedure they could imagine to thwart the robbers, but to no avail. Robbing trains became epidemic over the next five decades, even when the legislatures made train robbery a capital crime. A few of the hundreds of train robberies stand out as thrilling and dangerous affairs, and the greatest of these (15-20) are included in this book.

This box set contains all five films in the 'Planet of the Apes' series. In the original film, a group of Earth astronauts, led by Colonel George Taylor (Charlton Heston), are plunged nearly two thousand years into the future after passing through a time distortion. They crash land on a strange planet, where mute humans are treated as slaves by intelligent apes. In 'Beneath the Planet of the Apes', NASA send astronaut Brent (James Franciscus) on a rescue mission when Taylor's crew fail to return to Earth. Like Taylor, he is catapulted through time to the 'Ape' planet, where Taylor is now being held captive in the Forbidden Zone, an underground society whose telepathic mutant inhabitants dedicate their lives to their 'God': an atomic warhead. In 'Escape from the Planet of the Apes', the sympathetic chimps of the first two films, Zira (Kim Hunter) and Cornelius (Roddy McDowall), escape the nuclear devastation of the Earth by travelling back in time in Taylor's spaceship, arriving in Los Angeles in the year 1973. They are initially held in captivity in a zoo, but when they prove their intelligence they are released and hailed as celebrities. In 'Conquest of the Planet of the Apes', the year is now 1991. Following a plague which wiped out all cats and dogs, apes have been adopted as pets by humans, but when Zira and Cornelius' son Caesar (Roddy McDowall) sees them being treated as slaves, he leads his brother simians in rebellion against their overlords. 'Battle for the Planet of the Apes' opens in 2670 with the ape Lawgiver (John Huston) relating how, following the 1991 rebellion, mankind embarked on a terrible nuclear war. In the devastation which followed, Caesar and the apes seized control, ruling benevolently over the human survivors, and working to rebuild society. However, civil war was being fermented by ambitious gorilla general Aldo (Claude Akins). Also included is previously unseen footage and interviews with cast and crew members.

In this lively and inspiring adaptation by a rising star in the manga world, and with illustrations by a leading artist, Shoko Tendo's powerful story has been recreated. Yakuza Moon is a heartrending and eye-opening account of her experiences growing up in Japan's gangster society.
Born into the family of a wealthy yakuza boss, Shoko Tendo lived her early years in luxury. But labeled "the yakuza kid," she was the victim both of bullying and discrimination from teachers and classmates at school, and of her father's drunken rages at home. Then, the family fell into debt, and Tendo fell in with the wrong crowd. By the age of fifteen she was a gang member; by the age of eighteen, a drug addict; and in her twenties, a willing participant in a series of abusive and violent relationships with men.
Tendo sank lower and lower. After the death of her parents and her own suicide attempt, she began a tortuous, soul-searching reevaluation of the road she had taken. An unconventional act of empowerment (getting tattooed from the base of her neck to the tips of her toes) finally helped her take control of her life, leading to redemption and happiness.
Already an international success and translated into fourteen languages, Tendo's story is sure to appeal to many new fans in this outstanding graphic version.

From the authors of the successful Grand-Guignol and London's Grand Guignol - also published by UEP - this book includes translations of a further eleven plays, adding significantly to the repertoire of Grand-Guignol plays available in the English language. The emphasis in the translation and adaptation of these plays is once again to foreground the performability of the scripts within a modern context - making Performing Grand-Guignol an ideal acting guide. Hand and Wilson have acquired extremely rare acting copies of plays which have never been published and scripts that were published in the early years of the twentieth century but have not been published since - even in French. Includes plays written by, or adapted from, such notable writers as Octave Mirbeau, Gaston Leroux and St John Ervine as well as examples by Grand-Guignol stalwarts Rene Berton and Andre de Lorde. Also included is the 1920s London translation of Blind Man's Buff written by Charles Hellem and Pol d'Estoc and banned by the Lord Chamberlain. A brief history of the Parisian theatre is also included, for the benefit of readers who have not read the previous books.
