Description of Bigfoot in 1967 Patterson/Gimlin film
Now Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin offer the best evidence yet of the California "Big Feet." Gimlin, a part-Apache woodsman and tracker, has been searching with Patterson, a self-employed inventor, for the "Big Feet" for three years. From my careful viewing of the film footage, here is what the "Big Foot" or "Sasquatch" is like: The creature seen Is a fe male, judging from its clearly hanging breats. She is about seven feet tall, weighs about 400 pounds, and walks upright like a human, with straight legs. She is covered all over with shiny, jet-black hair and, as she walks along in the film, she swings her arms. HER HEAD is covered with hair which comes up to the bot tom of the cheek bones and down over the forehead to join with the eyebrows.- Her face is flat, not protruber-ant like a gorilla's, and with a wide, pug nose. The eyes , are small and deep-sunken. Her head rises to a crest. She has no neck, and the shoulders are three feet wide. The stomach is flat. The film last about one minute and shows the creature walking along a dry sand bank, littered with logs and driftwood. At one point she turned around and looked directly at the camera, Then, as Roger Patterson con tinued after her, holding his mov ie camera, she ambled off in the bush. She left clear tracks in the sand measuring 41 inches from left heel to right heel and each print is 16 inches long.
