The 1970’s was a decade rich in Bigfoot movies and documentaries; this was most assuredly due to the popularity and influence of the Patterson film. To this day, the information contained within these films is still relevant and useful in Bigfoot history and research. I strongly suggest watching the documentaries contained in this portion of the website in order to familiarize yourself with the mindset of those studying the existence of Bigfoot and the authenticity of the Patterson film. One can’t help but compare documentaries from this era to modern day television shows about Bigfoot. It is obvious these films were made with entertainment in mind and with a certain amount of sensationalism; however there seems to be a much more serious and sober approach to the research and recreations in these films in comparison to most of today’s documentaries.
