The naked ape is only human. From executive producer Hugh Hefner comes this provocative adaptation of Desmond Morris’ pop-zoology bestseller. Through a series of animated and live-action vignettes starring Johnny Crawford (TV’s The Rifleman, Village of the Giants) and Victoria Principal (TV’s Dallas, Vigilante Force), The Naked Ape traces the evolution of sex and offers insight into why we behave the way we do. Part docudrama, part satire, part surreal countercultural experiment, The Naked Ape exposes the naked truth about love, courtship, jealousy and violence. Can you dig it? This Playboy-produced cult classic finally reveals itself in a glorious new HD transfer!
