About Planet of the Apes (2001)

After a spectacular crash-landing on an uncharted planet, brash astronaut Leo Davidson (Mark Wahlberg) finds himself trapped in a savage world where talking apes dominate the human race. Desperate to find a way home, Leo must evade the invincible gorilla army led by ruthless General Thade (Tim Roth) and his most trusted warrior, Attar (Michael Clarke Duncan). Now the pulse-pounding race is on to reach a sacred temple that may hold the shocking secrets of mankind's past - and the last hope for it's salvation! Based on Pierre Boulle's classic novel "Planet of the Apes," the premise for this film has become one of the most recognized and provocative concepts in the canon of science fiction literature and cinema. Visionary filmmaker Tim Burton (Batman, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow) has taken Boulle's basic idea and built upon it a uniquely envisioned journey to an incredible upside-down world.

In July of 1965, Linda was the first runner-up in the Miss American Pageant in Long Beach, California.

Linda's big break came in August of 1965 when she went for a Personality Screen Test at 20th Century Fox with a 60-day option. In November of the same year, Linda was signed to a seven year contract with 20th Century Fox. Several small roles came her way with the pilot of Men Against Evil, Way, Way, Out with James Brolin, and A Guide for the Married Man with Carl Reiner, which was directed by the legendary Gene Kelly.
