Escape From The Planet of the Apes: Cornelius and Zira are put up in luxury: Beverly Wilshire, Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles
In a reversal of the premise of the first film, three of the futuristic apes travel back to the 20th century in this second sequel to the original The Planet of the Apes.
Arriving, conveniently, in Los Angeles, Zira (Kim Hunter) and Cornelius (Roddy McDowall) are treated like celebs and find themselves ensconced in the Regent Beverly Wilshire, 9500 Wilshire Boulevard, at the foot of Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills. So, of course, they get kitted out in style. And, of course, this is where Julia Roberts stayed in Pretty Woman.
