Karsh photographed on some Hollywood movie sets in the 1960s and ’70s. Our friends at the photo agency MPTV Images shared this wonderful photograph of Roddy McDowall and co-star Kim Hunter on the set of the film “Planet of the Apes,” which was released in 1968. Mr. Karsh can be seen in the background, in the dark suit, preparing his camera and lighting.

Make-up artist John Chambers received an honorary Oscar at the 41st Academy Awards in 1969 – his handiwork is seen below on Roddy McDowall.
