Policemen beating hippies? What were the hippies doing... I mean, were they engaged in some corrupt activity comparable to the work of the Soylent company?

No, grandpa is just... old, he was old when the hippie movement started and probably thought they should cut their hair and get a job. In his mind it was a nice last image before he died, seeing hippies getting beaten up.

I noticed a couple terrific references to Charlton Heston and Planet of the Apes in an episode of The X-Files. Season three episode 12 entitled War of the Coprophages.

For some context, Agent Mulder and his partner Agent Scully have stumbled onto the subject of Mulder's obsession with investigating the extraterrestrial and paranormal.

Scully: Yeah, well. Don't look too hard. You might not like what you find.

Mulder: Isn't that what Dr. Zaius said to Charlton Heston at the end of Planet of the Apes?

Scully: And look what happened.


The next allusion to Planet of the Apes takes place at the end of the episode:
Spoiler:
It's strongly suggested in the episode that a strain of cockroaches found in a small town are actually alien artificially intelligent robots. A scientist named Ivanov interested in artificial intelligence, bug-like robots and their potential applications in space exploration asks Mulder if he can examine one of the bugs. Bambi is a researcher for the Department of Agriculture also interested in insects. The following exchange takes place:

Mulder: I've already had a similar sample analyzed. It's nothing but common metals. What do you hope to find from it?

Bambi: His destiny.

Ivanov: Isn't that what Dr. Zaius said to Zira at the end of the Planet of the Apes?

Bambi: It's one of my favorite movies.

Ivanov: Mine too. I love science fiction.

That's interesting, but the second reference is actually to the movie rather than the man. Good, anyway.

The man is remembered by his body of film, I think a reference within reason to one of his movies is a reference to him. I couldn't have left out the second reference as it's pretty much a second half to the first reference, and I would have considered it a good Charlton Heston reference even if in the first one he'd said George Taylor instead of Charlton Heston. The only place I'd really draw the line when it comes to what should be considered a reference to Charlton Heston through one of his films is a generic Soylent Green such and such is people type reference that gets used a joke at some point just about everywhere.

Nice one, better side! I really need to watch some X-Files, it's been over a decade since I watched that show!

A book titled Sites of Exchange: European Crossroads and Faultlines edited by Maurizio Ascari, Adriana Corrado offers a reference to Chuck and his discovery of the half-buried Statue of Liberty. The specific essay in which the reference occurs is "Egypt in England and America: The Cultural Memorials of Religion, Royalty and Revolution" by Edward Chaney. The author seeks to draw a traditional recapitulation of memorial architecture since the ancient civilisations, referring to the King Ozymandias' memorial, Edward Gibbon's description of the Roman Capitol and "looking ahead, of Charlton Heston discovering the 'half-sunk' (Egyptian inspired) Statue of Liberty at the end of The Planet of the Apes,.... "(p. 48)

Is here anybody who loves to read Asterix comics? Well, in the second book of the Asterix series, ' Asterix and the Golden Sickle', you may find an interesting, though indirect reference to Chuck. When Asterix and Obelix reach Lutetia, they found it a big and peopled city, with congested roads. A charioteer was driving at high speed across the crowded road, and a passer-by retorted, "What do you think you are, Ben-Hur?" (the page is given in image-format ) Now this is an anachronism, forthe Asterix stories are set in a time before Christ was born, and Ben-Hur is an exact contemporary of Christ. However, Goscinni's comics got serialised in 1960, just about the time Ben-Hur got awarded with so many OSCARS. Goscinny was sure to watch the film and got impressed, otherwise he would not have incorporated such a reference in his comics.

:lol: Awesome. Loved Asterix as a kid, both reading them and watching the movies.

The IMDb page on MADAGASKAR shows a reference to Chuck's famous lines in the POTA. Here is the sequence:

After Melman accidentally burns down the wooden Statue of Liberty we see Alex the Lion kneeling in front of it paraphrasing the famous Charlton Heston scene from the end of Planet of the Apes. Alex says "You maniacs, you burned it up. Darn you! Darn you all to heck!

By the way, has anyone posted it before?
