Space Babe: Linda Harrison

Linda Harrison as the lovely Nova in the first two Planet of the Apes films. Though technically not a "Space Babe," she's definitely one of the few things in the Apes future worth living and fighting for.

I spent all day on Friday watching the five original Apes theatrical features and was once again struck by Miss Harrison's natural beauty and mute charisma. She may have got the part because she was producer Richard Zanuck's girlfriend (and later, wife), but she filled the role of the future's most lovely savage quite capably in both The Planet of the Apes and its immediate sequel, Beneath the Planet of the Apes.


  1. I highly agree! I had a tremendous crush on Ms. Harrison due to the two Apes movies. Wonder how she's doing these days?

  2. Still married to studio head Daryl Zanuck.

    ...and she was the FIRST tv Wonder Woman!

  3. Oops, my bad, she divorced Zanuck!
    Wonder how she feels about younger men... ;-)

  4. Man Nova I remember as a wee lad watching the APES and when she appeared...yeah...;)
