Frame , the well-known look-back image, is in the public domain, having long been reprinted by others without protest by the copyright holder.
The whereabouts of the original is unknown, although there are several speculations as to what happened to it. At least seven copies were made of the original film.
Bill Munns listed four other missing reels of derivative works that would be helpful to film analysts. The second reel, showing Patterson and Gimlin making and displaying plaster casts of some footprints, was not shown in conjunction with the first reel at Al DeAtley's house,  according to those who were there.
Chris Murphy wrote, "I believe the screening of this roll at the University of British Columbia on October 26, , was the first and last major screening.
John Green suspects that Al DeAtley has it. A ten-foot strip from that reel, or from a copy of that reel, from which still images were taken by Chris Murphy, still exists, but it, too, has gone missing.
One factor that complicates discussion of the Patterson film is that Patterson said he normally filmed at 24 frames per second, but in his haste to capture the Bigfoot on film, he did not note the camera's setting.
His Cine-Kodak K camera had markings on its continuously variable dial at 16, 24, 32, 48, and 64 frames per second, but no click-stops, and was capable of filming at any frame speed within this range.
Grover Krantz wrote, "Patterson clearly told John Green that he found, after the filming, that the camera was set on 18 frames per second fps.
The Patterson—Gimlin film has seen relatively little interest from mainstream scientists. Statements of scientists who viewed the film at a screening, or who conducted a study, are reprinted in Chris Murphy's Bigfoot Film Journal.
Krantz countered the latter point, saying "a sagittal crest As anthropologist David Daegling writes, "[t]he skeptics have not felt compelled to offer much of a detailed argument against the film; the burden of proof, rightly enough, should lie with the advocates.
Regarding the quality of the film, second-generation copies or copies from TV and DVD productions are inferior to first-generation copies.
Many early frames are blurry due to camera shake, and the quality of subsequent frames varies for the same reason. Stabilization of the film e.
Davis to counter the effect of camera shake has improved viewers' ability to analyze it. Regarding "graininess," Bill Munns writes, "Based on transparencies taken off the camera original, Bernard Heuvelmans —a zoologist and the so-called "father of cryptozoology "—thought the creature in the Patterson film was a suited human.
Prominent primate expert John Napier one-time director of the Smithsonian 's Primate Biology Program was one of the few mainstream scientists not only to critique the Patterson—Gimlin film but also to study then-available Bigfoot evidence in a generally sympathetic manner, in his book, Bigfoot: The Sasquatch and Yeti in Myth and Reality.
Napier conceded the likelihood of Bigfoot as a real creature, stating, "I am convinced that Sasquatch exists.
The creature shown in the film does not stand up well to functional analysis. First, the length of "the footprints are totally at variance with its calculated height".
He adds, "I could not see the zipper; and I still can't. There I think we must leave the matter. Perhaps it was a man dressed up in a monkey-skin; if so it was a brilliantly executed hoax and the unknown perpetrator will take his place with the great hoaxers of the world.
Perhaps it was the first film of a new type of hominid, quite unknown to science, in which case Roger Patterson deserves to rank with Dubois, the discoverer of Pithecanthropus erectus , or Raymond Dart of Johannesburg, the man who introduced the world to its immediate human ancestor, Australopithecus africanus.
Esteban Sarmiento is a specialist in physical anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History. He has 25 years of experience with great apes in the wild.
He writes,  "I did find some inconsistencies in appearance and behavior that might suggest a fake There is no mammal I know of in which the plantar sole differs so drastically in color from the palm.
His most controversial statements are these: "The gluteals, although large, fail to show a humanlike cleft or crack.
In all of the above relative values, bigfoot is well within the human range and differs markedly from any living ape and from the 'australopithecine' fossils.
And: "I estimate bigfoot's weight to be between and lbs. When anthropologists David J. Daegling of the University of Florida and Daniel O.
Schmitt examined the film, they concluded it was impossible to conclusively determine if the subject in the film is nonhuman, and additionally argued that flaws in the studies by Krantz and others invalidated their claims.
Daegling and Schmitt noted problems of uncertainties in the subject and camera positions, camera movement, poor image quality, and artifacts of the subject.
They concluded: "Based on our analysis of gait and problems inherent in estimating subject dimensions, it is our opinion that it is not possible to evaluate the identity of the film subject with any confidence.
Daegling has asserted that the creature's odd walk could be replicated: "Supposed peculiarities of subject speed, stride length, and posture are all reproducible by a human being employing this type of locomotion [a "compliant gait"].
Daegling notes that in , movie and television special effects were primitive compared to the more sophisticated effects in later decades, and allows that if the Patterson film depicts a man in a suit that "it is not unreasonable to suggest that it is better than some of the tackier monster outfits that got thrown together for television at that time.
Jessica Rose and James Gamble are authors of "the definitive text on human gait",  Human Walking. They conducted a high-tech human-replication attempt of "Patty's" gait, in cooperation with Jeff Meldrum.
Rose was certain their subject had matched Patty's gait, while Gamble was not quite as sure. Meldrum was impressed and acknowledged that "some aspects" of the creature's walk had been replicated, but not all.
The narrator said, "even the experts can see the gait test could not replicate all parameters of the gait. A computerized visual analysis of the video conducted by Cliff Crook, who once devoted rooms to sasquatch memorabilia in his home in Bothell, Washington,  and Chris Murphy, a Canadian Bigfoot buff from Vancouver, British Columbia, was released in January and exposed an object which appeared to be the suit's zip-fastener.
Humbell noted "Longtime enthusiasts smell a deserter. Krantz also showed the film to Gordon Valient, a researcher for Nike shoes, who he says "made some rather useful observations about some rather unhuman movements he could see".
A first-season episode of MonsterQuest focuses on the Bigfoot phenomenon. A second pair, Daris Swindler and Owen Caddy, employs digital enhancement and observes facial movements, such as moving eyelids, lips that compress like an upset chimp's, and a mouth that is lower than it appears, due to a false-lip anomaly like that of a chimp's.
Unfortunately, the show's narrator falsely claims, three times, that the original film shot by Patterson was used.
The episode concludes, "the new findings are intriguing but inconclusive, until a body is found. Bill Munns, retired, was a special effects and make-up artist,  cameraman, and film editor.
He says that Fox, MGM , and special effects artist Stuart Freeborn in England, "who had just completed his groundbreaking ape suits for A Space Odyssey ," would have been preferable.
Munns started posting his online analysis of the film in and summarizing it in the online Munns Report. He argues the film depicts a non-human animal, not a man in a fur suit.
He proposes a new diagnostic test of authenticity, at the armpit: natural concave skin fold vs. In , Philip Morris, owner of Morris Costumes a North Carolina -based company offering costumes, props and stage products claimed that he made a gorilla costume that was used in the Patterson film.
Morris says he discussed his role in the hoax "at costume conventions, lectures, [and] magician conventions"  in the s, but first addressed the public at large on August 16, , on Charlotte, North Carolina, radio station WBT.
Morris said that he sold an ape suit to Patterson via mail order in , thinking it was going to be used in what Patterson described as a "prank".
After the initial sale, Morris said that Patterson telephoned him asking how to make the "shoulders more massive"  and the "arms longer". The Bigfoot researchers say that no human can walk that way in the film.
Oh, yes they can! When you're wearing long clown's feet, you can't place the ball of your foot down first.
You have to put your foot down flat. Otherwise, you'll stumble. Another thing, when you put on the gorilla head, you can only turn your head maybe a quarter of the way.
And to look behind you, you've got to turn your head and your shoulders and your hips. Plus, the shoulder pads in the suit are in the way of the jaw.
That's why the Bigfoot turns and looks the way he does in the film. He has to twist his entire upper body. Morris' wife and business partner Amy had vouched for her husband and claims to have helped frame the suit.
Morris wouldn't consent to release the video to National Geographic, the re-creation's sponsor, claiming he hadn't had adequate time to prepare and that the month was in the middle of his busy season.
However, he has not attempted to create a suit more to his liking since that time. Bob Heironimus claims to have been the figure depicted in the Patterson film.
After speaking with his lawyer he was told that since he had not been paid for his involvement in the hoax, he could not be held accountable.
I'm tired after thirty-seven years. Heironimus's name was first publicly revealed, and his allegations first publicly detailed, five years later, in Greg Long's book, The Making of Bigfoot , which includes testimony that corroborates Heironimus' claims:.
Long argues that the suit Morris says he sold to Patterson was the same suit Heironimus claims to have worn in the Patterson film.
However, Long quotes Heironimus and Morris describing different ape suits in many respects. Among the notable differences are:.
Long speculates that Patterson modified the costume, but only by attaching Morris's loose hands and feet to the costume,  and by replacing Morris's mask.
There's no evidence or testimony that Patterson changed the Morris suit to horsehide, or dyed it a darker color, or cut it in half at the waist to agree with Heironimus's description.
Some film proponents    say that Heironimus' arms are too short to match that of a Bigfoot and that he was a few inches shorter than the creature on the film up to 14 inches shorter.
It has also been said that Heironimus was not as bulky as the creature, but film critics claim that a suit could correct for that  and for height.
Polygraph tests regarding their claims have been passed by both Heironimus  and Patterson. After the death of Ray Wallace in , following a request by Loren Coleman to The Seattle Times reporter Bob Young to investigate, the family of Wallace went public with claims that he had started the Bigfoot phenomenon with fake footprints made from a wooden foot-shaped cutout left in Californian sites in From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
