The Davis Report-When Working With the Film, Does it Matter Which “Copy” is Used?

The answer is a resounding yes! There are many copies of this film out there. Most of the better ones have never been seen in public. The location of the original copy is not known, but I suspect that wherever it is, it is in pristine condition. This plethora of copies that are circulating around are mostly amateurishly made, and even at that, are copies of other copies until the resolution is nearly gone. Not only that, but some have taken the liberty to crop the copies until there is hardly any usable information in them. Here are some examples. In the frame below, the field of view is considerable. This was taken from one copy, that came from a Bigfooter in Canada whom most have assumed had the very best from the film.

Now here is another “full frame” in other words this was what was shown on the projector screen with none of the image on the sides or bottom or top lost. It is from the same source. Clearly this has been cropped. But what kind of “professional” would crop away HALF of the film’s subject matter? Click on the image to enlarge

Here’s another frame, again…from the same source. Click on the image to enlarge.

Here’s the cropped image from the same source. Click on the image to enlarge.

And last but not least…click on the image to enlarge.

…and here is the crop. Click on the image to enlarge.

My point is that because it comes from a certain source in Canada, is this source beyond question?. If he tells you that he has provided the best there is…how do you know that this is true? I’ll give you an example…in 1968 he released this photo in a book that he had written. Click on the image to enlarge.

When you read the caption from the photo above…notice the disclaimer…”as released to the newspapers”. At the same time that this photo was being published, this same person had in his possession an image of the quality as the frame below…yet…did NOT release it. Thankfully this man does not possess everything of quality, or we would know NOTHING of any significance about the film. The image below was graciously provided by Patricia Patterson, the widow of Roger Patterson. It is of superb quality, and is a sample of what could have been. Click on the image to enlarge.

The fact is…that there is NO certification of the film as to whether it’s a degenerated copy or whether it’s the best there is or what. The fact that the above image exists simply means that what we have been told about the film and what it contains is simply UNTRUE. The film’s handlers as of late, have not explained the quality of the above frame other than to say that I have altered it in some way. …again… this is UNTRUE.

Here are some links to short clips in slow motion that demonstrate the cropped nature of some of the copies. Here is the wide field clip. Click on the image to run the video.

  1. Again, thank you so much for the work you have and are doing on this.

    As a late comer any information I found seemed to just beg more questions.
    And I see here now, that is the case for those who have looked into this deeply over time, the questions deepen.

    I am actually a bit incredulous that several key players are still alive and we don’t know “where” the original is? Nor have we seen the full original film?

    So, it is difficult to understand how these individuals who advance this film as authentic and desire serious scientific scrutiny (or do they?) stop short of fully disclosing the entire footage or the original?

    Ah, no wonder this film has never gained acceptance within the scientific (public) community, it is too much to ask with so many hidden matters!

    I have seen Tom Slick’s name associated with some of the same players as this film (and later releases?) and I know he started a Bio-Medical Institute in Texas that still exists and houses 3,900 non-human primates. I think it has been reported that his “Sasquatch Memorabilia” (the collection from his quests) has never been recovered or whereabouts know? Am I being naive (or misinformed) thinking maybe Tom Slick’s heirs might be in possession of items dealing with the PG event? It seems the same names crop up around that summer and yet those still living seem to know very little about very important evidence and events. (I apologize if the accurate information is out there and I cannot identify it among competing stories – I have read a few of the “classics” on this).

    I guess my above question is slightly off topic so feel free to delete this to retain your work’s focus.

  2. Thank you for your insights. The mission of this site is to provide the better images and clips and to provoke thought. This is how problems like this are solved, when people like yourself, are thinking and having ideas, the solution might be one good idea away. M.K.

  3. I think your mission is being fulfilled well with your efforts alone. This is excellent work and heads and shoulders above most Sasquatch inquiries. I look forward to more.

    Here is an idea (not mine): “Open Access” is a word I now see associated with Anthropological/Archeological efforts and a new research paradigm employed by the team involved in the recent Australopithecus sediba find (2008) and report (Science, 9-2011).

    On NPR (2011) the lead scientist stated the fossils and data were made available to all
    interested researchers prior to his full analysis or peer review. Open Access was the term he used.

    There seems to be a ground swell in the Anthropology community to end the type of hidden-data/competition that has been an integral part of that community, and which many feel is responsible for the slow progress in understanding Human Evolution through the last century.

    My exposure to Sasquatch “research” has reminded me of that same competitive, rather than cooperative, approach to scientific discovery.

    You have created “Open Access” to the PG film here in a way never before provided to serious researchers.

    I hope your work begins a ground swell for “Open Access ” among Sasquatch researchers.
