In honor of its 43rd anniversary month we present a slightly down-scaled historical research copy of the rare and important Ivan Sanderson article on the Patterson-Gimlin Film from the now long-defunct ARGOSY MAGAZINE, first published in February, 1968. This was the first major publication of the film images in color, and an fine initial presentation of the story and the early scientific reaction to the film and its controversial subject.
We hope this clears up certain conspiracy theories about where and when the film was shot. Some have suggested that the Yakima footage shot by Roger Patterson was actually filmed in Bluff Creek, trying to substantiate the tenuous and dubious notion that Bob Hieronimus, Jerry Merritt and other Washingtonians were present that day in October, 1967. Not having access to the original pictorial parts of this article, these "theorists" have stated that the article confirmed the presence of individuals from an earlier 1967 Yakima project were actually there in Bluff Creek in October. No, folks--that image on the cover showing Bob Gimlin in "Indian Tracker" garb was for a fictionalized docudrama filmed around the Yakima area before the non-fictional expedition the two (NOT three, not more) took down to Bluff Creek later that same year. The image on the magazine cover was only put there for popular appeal by the publishers. It is not from "Film Roll Two," or anything like that. Look at the setting... that is NOT Bluff Creek in extreme Northern California.
Again, we say, "for historical research purposes only"--this article is too important for it to languish only in tattered copies found on eBay, or in the entrance lobby to Cinnabar Sam's Restaurant in Willow Creek.

OK FBF-FB!!! Will do. It's done. We know the truth now. It's over. Sorry.

CAMOUFLAGING FBF-FB ERRORS?
Someone should really start trying to save initial copies of the videos these guys post, as they make some really goofy errors which are later edited out to avoid embarrassment. This last week featured a video on camouflage, claiming that Bigfoot was 100 times more effective at camouflaging itself than other animals, even after showing some really amazing video of how effectively the octopus can change color to blend in with the most challenging settings. Bigfoot is normally reported as brownish, and doesn't change color to, say, blend in with red leaves, blue in water, or whatever. Guys, please, how many degrees do you supposedly hold from accredited universities? Are they really in wildlife biology?

Here is the SNOPES.COM page totally debunking the "urban legend" of the CHAMELEON CHANGING COLORS, complete with the video of the sunglass ad embedded. If FindBigfoot believed this, ask yourself: WHAT OTHER STUPID ASSUMPTIONS ARE THEY MAKING? We leave the conclusions to you.
ANGRY BIGFOOT SPEAKS!
