A purported bigfoot is filmed by Patterson and Gimlin. The Patterson-Gimlin film (also referred to as simply the Patterson film) is a famous short motion picture of an unidentified subject the film makers purported to be a "Bigfoot", that was supposedly filmed on October 20, 1967 by Roger Patterson (February 14, 1926 – January 15, 1972) and Robert Gimlin (October 18, 1931) in the Six Rivers National Forest outside of Crescent City, California. The film has been subjected to many attempts both to debunk and authenticate it. Most scientists have judged the film a hoax with a man in an ape suit, but other theorists contend the film depicts a cryptid, a creature unknown to science.
