Coffee With Jeff #100: The Patterson-Gimlin Film Part 1

32 mins - Published Sun, Aug 7, 2016 by Jeff Kelley

On October 20, 1967, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin were riding on horseback, round a bend near Bluff Creek, California. They said they came across a large, hairy beast known as Bigfoot. Roger was able to capture the creature on 16mm film. Bob Gimlin said his first thoughts were, “wow, they really do exist!”

Patterson thought he had proof of Bigfoot’s existence and really expected the scientists to accept it. But only a few scientists were willing to even look at the film! This is what they say happened in 1967.
