That's right, a monkey played the Emperor in Empire. Sort of.

If that original version of the Emperor freaked you out, this is probably why. As this original photo shows, a chimpanzee's eyes were superimposed over Actor Elaine Baker (Makeup Director Rick Baker's wife) to create the look. Clive Revill voiced the character in the unaltered version of The Empire Strikes Back.
