NEW EBOOK - Patterson-Gimlin Film - Fake or Fact (Cryptid Casebook)
In this book researcher Larry Jaffer investigates the famous
Patterson-Gimlin Film that was shot in 1967 and which purports to show a
Bigfoot, or Sasquatch.
The film remains the clearest moving picture of what is claimed to
be a Bigfoot. Unlike many other films it lasts more than a second or two
and the creature is not obscured by trees, shadows or poor light
conditions. Quite the contrary, the subject of this film walks across an
area of open ground in direct, bright sunlight. It is clearly visible
and can be studied in detail.
The Bigfoot seen in this film has become known as "Patty". This is a
female version of the surname of the man who shot the movie - Roger
Patterson. It was coined to distinguish the creature shown in this
footage from other Bigfoot. The female designation was chosen as the
film shows the creature has clearly defined female breasts.
Over the years the film has been analysed hundreds of times both by
people determined to show it is a fake and others wanting to prove it
factually shows a real Bigfoot. Neither side in the debate has been able
to prove their case simply by looking at the film. In this book we look
at the circumstantial evidence around the film. When was it shot? Why
was Roger Patterson there? Could Roger Patterson be trusted? Did
Patterson behave in a suspicious manner?
By looking at the circumstantial evidence this book comes to
definitive conclusions that have eluded those who have studied only the
