The Infamous "Muscle Apes"

Contributor unknown (found on the 'net)

A couple of the more interesting Apes stills that have come to light in recent years feature four, shirtless, muscle-bound stuntmen on the set of Planet of the Apes. In the first photo, they're wearing background-gorilla masks. In the second, they're holding the masks in their hands.

L->R: Seymour Koenig, Zabo Koszewski, Jerry Trayler, and Big Steve Merjanian.

The identification of the stuntmen came from the book West Coast Bodybuilding Scene: The Golden Era, by Dick Tyler.
