Does the infamous 59-seconds of shaky, grainy Bigfoot footage shot by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin in 1967 the woods in Northern California prove the existence of Bigfoot? And more importantly is the footage real, and if so how was it made and originally distributed? Those are just some of the questions that guest Phil Hall researched and answered for his new book, “The Weirdest Movie Ever Made: The Patterson-Gimlin Bigfoot Film.” Phil details what he discovered and uncovered about the film, the conspiracies surrounding it, and even the filmmakers themselves (who were actually rodeo riders; not filmmakers). He shares other Bigfoot sighting stories he stumbled across as he worked on his book, and offers his own theory about whether or not Bigfoot really exists, including the one featured in the Patterson-Gimlin film.
