Oct 20th: A Special Day for Bigfooters

The Patterson-Gimlin film (also referred to as simply the Patterson film) is a short motion picture of an unidentified subject filmed on October 20, 1967 by Roger Patterson (Wall, South Dakota, February 14, 1926 – January 15, 1972) and Robert Gimlin (Missouri, October 18, 1931) who claimed the film was a genuine recording of a bigfoot. The film has been subjected to many attempts both to debunk and authenticate it. Some qualified scientists have judged the film a hoax with a man in an ape suit, but other scientists contend the film depicts an animal unknown to science, or cryptid, claiming it would be virtually impossible for a human to replicate the subject's gait and muscle movement.

Today, October 20th, 42 years ago, Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin filmed the most famous Bigfoot footage to date. Always at the forefront BLC is one of the first to recognize this anniversary today.

Perhaps throughout the day more sites will recognize this date. In the meantime, I thought I would share some links around the web that focus on the historical film. On top of our list is Cryptomundo, because Loren Coleman has an exclusive tale straight from Bob Gimlin: Roger Patterson's little known deathbed confession.
