Film stabilization helps enormously in being able to see the detail in a moving image. Another helpful tool to observe film such as the Patterson footage, is to create an oscillating file. This file simply rocks back and forth through the selected sequence so that the movement can be detected more easily with the eye. In this file below, the muscles of the shoulder and back area can be seen to move naturally as the film subject walks in front of the camera. This type of musculature movement bears the stamp of authenticity. What or whoever this is…is not likely a person dressed in a suit. Take a look for yourself.
