Happy Anniversary, Patterson Film!

Patterson-Gimlin film - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The Patterson-Gimlin film (also referred to as simply the Patterson film) is a short motion picture of an unidentified subject filmed on October 20, 1967 by Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin who claimed the film was a genuine recording of a Bigfoot. The film has been subjected to many attempts both to debunk and authenticate it. Some qualified scientists have judged the film a hoax with a man in an ape suit, but other scientists contend the film depicts a cryptid, or animal unknown to science."

I think the guy that cooked up this clearly crappy effort finally recently admitted it.

jjs is correct. The maker of this hoax admitted it many years ago, yet the media and some crackpots continue to treat it as a real movie of Bigfoot. What fools these mortals be.
