The Davis Report-Patty’s Height


Many people argue about the height of the Patterson film subject. While nothing is exact, there can be a reasonable determination using known parameters. Here’s a still that uses the foot itself to measure the height. Click on the image to enlarge.

Here’s an animated fade image. The young man is Al Hogdson’s son Mike. He is six foot and one and three quarters of an inch tall. Now according to the image above, the film subject is going to be between 6’1″ and 6’5″ depending on how she is standing, straight or bent over. This image of Mike is approximately the same place and line of sight as that of the film subject. This should make this reasonably accurate. The film subject is now more erect so she is reaching her full height here. You be the judge. Click on the image to animate.

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.

The Davis Report-Walk Across, Walk Sequence One.


This clip was very hard to put together. There is a break in the film about midway. This is because the film went completely blurry and the frames could not be interpreted in any way. The film then continues until the film subject actually bends over forward. At that point the first walk sequence ends. It ends on a very blurry frame, so I back it up to the next clearest frame.

This clip will take you all the way to the last clear image on the first walk sequence. In that last image, the subject has fallen forward, with the buttocks showing toward the camera. The second sequence begins on another part of the sand bar, and need not be connected at all with the event seen here on this post. This file, at the last, oscillates back and forth so that the upright posture and the fallen posture can easily be understood. Click on the image to animate.

The Davis Report-The Whereabouts of the Original Film?


Many people wonder where that original film that Roger had is, and how it can be examined. There are many stories. Roger Patterson was a smart man. It has never made sense to me, that he would continue to show the original until it was damaged and destroyed. When I read the November, 1968 Argosy interview of Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin, Ivan T. Sanderson disclosed the information below regarding the original film and what was done with it. I tend to believe this. Click on the image to enlarge.

The Davis Report-Filmsite Perspective


I removed the post I had up earlier due to an error with some of the trees. Perspective can be one of the most difficult things to sort out. Rather than try it myself again, I am posting the image with no arrows. If you so desire, perhaps you can figure which trees in the aerial photo match the trees in the frame 352 inset. Print it out and draw lines and let me know what you come up with. The large image is from Chris Murphy’s book “Meet the Sasquatch” which can be purchased at Hancock House publishers.  Click on the image to enlarge.

The Davis Report-New Frames Added to Complete the Walk Across Sequence 2


When I previously posted this, I did not have all the frames to the walk across. I have since completed this with all the frames from this sequence of the film. Here it is for your perusal. Click on the image to animate.

The Davis Report-An Artist’s Rendering of What Patty Looks Like Without Hair


I was so taken aback by digital artist William Mayes’ rendition of the hair stripped Patty that I featured in a previous post, that I feel compelled to make it available here in a new post. This is not intended to offend, nor is it intended to be disrespectful in any way. This is a highly accurate rendition and is scientifically viable. The left hand was modeled after the next frame, that is, 353, that has the fingers a little more open. Many thanks to William Mayes for lending his artistic talents to this pursuit.

The Davis Report-Unusually Hairy People.


Body hair is not all that unusual among the large and extended human family. There are some examples, however, that seem to go against the accepted knowledge about genetics. For example, the Native American genetic makeup is not supposed to allow for beards nor for body hair. Or so they say? Here’s an example of a man from the Hupa tribe of Northern California. Once again, this is not the name that they originally called themselves, but rather was given them by the conquering whites flooding into the area. The Hupa, or Hoopa told me that there is neither an H nor a P in their ancient language which is fast disappearing. There was once over 120 different dialects in Northern California, and yet…most of them disappeared before much of anything was known about them. I must say that from what I’ve learned the anthropology coming out of the Smithsonian is tainted by the erroneous beliefs of the times. So…then…we don’t really know much of anything about the people or the peopleing of the Americas. This Hupa man certainly does have a beard. Rather than explain or accept that this is the case among some, it is explained away as…”There must have been contact with the Spaniards.” You be the judge here.

The last remaining member of the Yahi Yana tribe around the Mount Lassen area, Ishi the dawn man, stated that facial hair was a sign of disrespect and diligently plucked his every morning. Here’s a photo of him in San Francisco shortly after he gave himself up to authorities in Oroville California in 1911. In this photo Ishi has short hair. He burned his hair short in mourning for his sister and mother, who disappeared into the Northern California wilderness when their camp was discovered by surveyors. Once again, Ishi was not this man’s name. He never revealed his name. Ishi was proposed by his care giver, anthropologist Alfred Kroeber. Mr.Kroeber was close to Ales Hrdlicka the head of the department of anthropology for the Smithsonian. When Ishi tragically died of tuberculosis, Mr. Kroeber…against Ishi’s wishes, removed Ishi’s brain and sent it to Mr.Hrdlicka. Some Native American groups found out about this and lobbied for its return in the 1990’s. The Smithsonian at first denied having it, but eventually capitulated and removed it from a vat of formaldehyde where it was stored along with about 35 other brains, and sent it back. It is now with the rest of Ishi’s remains.

The photo below was taken by John Hillar, photographer for the Smithsonian. It was taken during the John Wesely Powell expedition to the American West. These unusual looking Native Americans were encountered somewhere in Nevada I believe. They had full beards and the gentleman on the left had been through a head shaping procedure when an infant. These photos were never published by the Smithsonian because they could not explain the appearance of these people, and they did not fit within the framework of the beliefs of the department’s head, Ales Hrdlicka. These photos finally saw the light of day in the 1960’s in Emory Strong’s “Stoneage in the Great Basin”. As you can see here, there was hairiness in the American West.

Here’s a man from China that was heralded as “The hairiest man in the world.” I certainly can’t argue that.

Here’s another example of a very hairy back.

Here’s a comparison photo with the man from China, compared to the film subject of the Patterson Sasquatch film. Notice that the lips look very similar, when surrounded by abundant facial hair.


Here’s a report from out of Canada, that was originally published by the International Bigfoot Society, and again later published in the book by David Paulides “Tribal Bigfoot”. It involves a Canadian sponsored expedition into the west, and this was found in their published report of what they saw.

The Davis Report-The Unusualness of the Human Gene.


There are many examples of unusual features found on humans from around the globe. This group below are the Yagans. Now that is not what they called themselves. They called themselves the Yamana. They lived at the bottom of the world, that is the southern tip of South America in the coastal areas of Tierra del Fuego. In that harsh environment, where it rains or sleets and snows over 300 days out of the year, and the water temperature is around 35 degrees, these people rarely dressed in anything at all. Occasionally an otter pelt shawl but most of the time completely naked. When Charles Darwin weighed anchor with the “Beagle”, that is his research ship, off shore in that area, the Yamana came out in canoes. He said that he was greeted by a woman with an infant at her breast. It was sleeting on them both, and neither thought anything of it. The Yamana have very unusual feet. They have very long toes that resemble the fingers of the hand. They were said to grasp rocks with their feet to anchor themselves in gale force wind. When they would get sleepy, they would curl up on a bare rock and sleep out in the open and wind. Here are some stills taken of the Yagans or Yamana, before they became extinct. The men were said to suffer from a mental condition called Psycho neurosis. They would go into a trance and become violent. Often they would have themselves tied up before the trance fully gripped them, and freed when it was over. The language was gutteral and very difficult to translate. They were gone, like so many other peoples…before anyone could adequately study them.

Here’s a larger version.

Now look at the unusual feet of the Yamana.

Here are some of the others.

Here’s another foot.

If you saw a track that was made by such a foot…what would you think?
