A&E Ancient Mysteries: BigfootAN EXCITING ADVENTURE INTO THE DARK FORESTS OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST TO FOLLOW THE TRAIL OF THE MOST-SIGHTED, MOST-POPULAR MYSTHICAL BEAST IN THE WORLD.
This is the story of the hunt for Bigfoot and the four old-men who have been searching for the elusive, mythical creature for the last 40 years. Inspired by the discovery of Yeti (abominable snowman) tracks in Nepal in the early 1950’s, followed by giant footprints in Northern California in 1958, these young adventurers set out to find an animal which science said didn’t exist. Originally, working together on the Pacific Northwest Bigfoot Expedition of 1960-62, funded by a Texas oil millionaire named Tom Slick- these four men began a quest and a rivalry which to this day has resulted in endless arguments and theories about the existence of this creature. This humorous film poses fundamental questions about the origins of man, while reveling in the silly and absurd sub-culture which surrounds the Bigfoot mystery. Using archival film images from the actual search for Bigfoot, interviews, B-movie clips and scenes from modern-day Sasquatch conventions, the film explores the relationship between the old hunters ("four horsemen of Sasquatchery") while seeking truths about the creature itself.
In October 1967, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin filmed a Bigfoot creature at Bluff Creek, California. The full story of the filming, its aftermath and authoritative conclusions on the creature filmed are provided in this updated edition of Patterson's original 1966 book 'Do Abominable Snowmen of America Really Exist?'.
