Bob Gimlin: "The film didn't impress me at all."


Most Bigfoot researchers consider the Patterson-Gimlin footage to be the single greatest evidence of the existence of Bigfoot. According to Bob Gimlin, seeing the film is not as impressive as seeing the actual creature.

Back in 1967, Gimlin met Roger Patterson  on the rodeo circuit where Patterson asked him to help out with investigating Bigfoot reports. During their excursion, the men made history when they encountered and film a female Bigfoot (with visible breasts) fleeing into woods. At the Ohio Bigfoot Conference, Gimlin explained what happened:

They rushed north to mail the film for processing.

"The film didn't impress me at all," Gimlin said.

This is compared to having been an eye witness to the creature, he added.

They would return to the scene with numerous cardboard boxes to protect the tracks they found in the soil. But heavy rains destroyed the boxes as they sat outside the truck (the men slept within). Gimlin improvised, using bark pulled from nearby dead trees to cover the tracks, protecting them from the rain until they could be cast.

The likeness of one of those tracks was crafted into a special framed and lighted box and presented to Gimlin.

  2. Of course any film is not going to capture the sheer mass and quality of what he was seeing in front of him at a very close distance.

    What is impressive is how vibrant Bob still is at his age. He answered several questions for me and jumped at the chance. Tom had to move me along after awhile as I was holding up the line up of people that was a half and hour long behind me. There was a sparkle in his eyes and excitement in his voice. I will always treasure these moments.

    2. So bigfoot is a profoundly stupid creature, as evidenced by the Bluff Creek footage. No wonder there aren't any left. A giant primate blundering around in the woods would be considered a threat, and hunted to extinction toot sweet. You can all go back to the mother ship now.

    3. The behaviour of the subject is in sync with thousands of reports... A high majority of the reports in fact.

    4. Ridiculous assessment. Since Bigfoot has not been captured, it's obviously not the stupid creature you'd like to presume. It is not a blundering creature, quite the opposite; they are very stealthy and highly evasive. And since it has not been hunted to extinction, you are also wrong on that point.

    2. Oh u we're talking about people finding feet washed up on the shores of west coast Canada ! Ttl

    3. Oh yes!!

      It's really bizarre, but feet in trainers keep getting washed up on shore or found near creeks in the PNW?! Really creepy!! One of be strangest re-occurances of the PCN, is shoes of dead people being found with ankles bones and single feet being found? Have you heard about this? Apparently... There are reports of people being hit in the region of 60 miles per hour, and their trainers and feet are left at the place where at the moment they were hit!

      "Since August 20, 2007, several detached human feet have been discovered on the coasts of the Salish Sea in British Columbia (Canada) and Washington (United States). The feet belonged to five men, one woman, and three other people of unknown sex, the two left feet having been matched with two of the right feet. As of February 2012, only five feet of four people have been identified; it is not known to whom the rest of the feet belong. In addition, a hoax "foot" was planted on Vancouver Island."

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salish_Sea_human_foot_discoveries

      And I've just came across this documentary here;

      http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/mystery-disembodied-feet/

      ... Obviously, there could be a very normal explanation for it, but a weird consistency no doubt!!

    4. That's to many feet to be just someone getting hit by a boat motor or car it doesn't make sense??? It seems something is eating people and they don't touch the feet like missing 411 ttl

    5. Well it's mentioned by David Paulides who wrote 411, so it's a definite strange one.

      A boat motor, now there's a thought!

      Ouch!!

      Delete
    6. I was just thinking if someone randomly threw bodies in the water and a boat drove buy they could loose a foot but that's so random and they probably would have figured that out and chances probably 1/100000000? I'll go with miss 411 ttl

    7. They've found feet washed up on shores around these parts, embedded in running shoes etc.

    8. Really ERNIE. I had not heard anything about all this until Joe recently put it out here and now you are confirming. Are they always in running shoes? Strange indeed.

    "American Antiquarian, April 1878
    Lake County Illinois
    Mr. W.B. Gray, of Highland Park, also mentions the discovery of a skull in a mound near Fox Lake, in Lake County, Illinois. This skull is certainly very remarkable; the frontal lobe or arch seems to be entirely wanting; the large projecting eye-brows, deep set eye sockets, the low, receding forehead, and the long, narrow and flat shape of the crown rendered it a very animal-looking skull. If it was not a posthumous deformation it certainly is a remarkable skull and might well pass for the "missing link."
    Oakland Tribune, August 24, 1896

    SEVEN SKELETONS
    A Remarkable Discovery Made at Shell Mound Park
    SKULLS RESEMBLING APES
    An interesting discovery has been made at Shell Mound Park, where the skeleton of a A prehistoric race of Indians was excavated. These skeletons are of a race unknown at present and are undoubtedly of great antiquity.

    Evening News, (Ada, Oklahoma) November 8, 1912
    PRIMITIVE MEN OF GIGANTIC STATURE
    Eleven skeletons of primitive men, with foreheads sloping directly back from the eyes, and two rows of teeth in the front of the upper jaw, have been uncovered at Craigshill, at Ellensburg, Wash. They were found about twenty feet below the surface, twenty feet back from the face of the slope, in a cement rock formation, over which was a layer of shale."

  14. I love reading all about Sasquatch'. I argue with my hubby at times because he's hell-bent on thinking BF is non existent. I follow so many blogs on everything BF. But my only question and I know I'm not alone here, for anyone who cares to answer is, why can't anyone someone come up with physical proof of sasquatch? Even a believable pic or video cam? People post stuff all the time but haters knock it all down saying fake pic, fake video on YouTube, it's endless really. Just seems all we have to rely on is people's stories.

  17. The PGF film was NOT shot in October. It was shot around the summer solstice, as an analysis of the shadows shows. Patterson and Gimlin are/were liars. I believe the firm to be real, but the time and details are an horrendous coverup. It makes me tend to believe the massacre theories. Bob, it is past time to 'fess up about the film's details.

    1. The only moron on the face of the planet who believes that Patterson and Gimlin were liars about when the film was shot, believes in a coverup and implies that the massacre theory has any validity, IS MK DAVIS, the most psychotic man in Bigfootery. Why don't you tell them how short you are MK, instead of lieing through your teeth abou it?

      Delete
    2. It's simple dipstick. You get the GPS coordinates of Bluff Creek. You look up the altitude and azimuth of the sun for late October. The minimum shadow for October is significantly LONGER than the shadows of Patty. They only way to get the shorter shadows in the PGF is to roll back the date to where the sun is higher in the sky. The film had to have been shot near the summer solstice ~22 June. Simple geometry and arithmetic, not refutable. I may post it sometime if the idiocy ever subsides.
