Claude Akins (Aldo)

Claude Marion Akins, born in Nelson, Georgia on May 25, 1926, died in Altadena, CA, January 27, 1994, is best known to Apes fans from his brilliant portrayal of the brutal, belligerent and semi-literate gorilla General Aldo in Battle For The Planet Of The Apes (1973). To everyone else, he's probably best remembered as Sheriff Lobo in B. J. and the Bear. Among his many film and TV appearances are Movin' On, Maverick, The Twilight Zone, From Here To Eternity, McCloud, Macmillan And Wife and Fantasy Island (with Escape and Conquest star Ricardo Montalbán).
