Was there ever a cut of the 1972 movie Conquest of the Planet of the Apes in which Armando addressed Roddy McDowall's character as "Milo" at the beginning?
I could swear that the first time I saw this film (on PBS in late 1989 or 1990), the circus owner calls him "Milo" at least once early on. And so, when I saw it again a few years later on home video, I was surprised to see him called "Caesar" all the way through.
Maybe my memory is faulty, but I'm not convinced. I saw the previous movie in the series, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, out of order. At the time, I didn't know Caesar was originally named Milo by Cornelius and Zira. (Conversely, when I did see the earlier film, I already knew what they were going to call him.)
If there was, at some time, an editing change made to the film, then it changes the significance of Milo selecting the name "Caesar" out of the dictionary. He was accepting his destiny as the conqueror of the human race. If he was already named Caesar, though, he was merely looking up his own name.
Tell me I'm not imagining things.
