Planet of the Apes Home Movies

In the days before home video became a thing, you could still enjoy the movies you love at home.  All you needed was a super expensive projector and reel to reel copies of your movies.  At $7.95 they were not too expensive.  Look more closely though, and you'll notice that each movie runs for 12 minutes, for a total screen time of one hour for all five movies.  I think some vital story points must have been cut out.My favorite thing about this ad is noticing that Conquest of the Planet of the Apes takes place in 1990.
