He was filming scenery right before encountering Patty, wasn't he?

Goofing off and filming each other and the scenery is the stated reason for not having much film left for Patty.

It's mentioned the early radio interview transcript that they were filming that morning before they encountered Patty.

That morning would be correct. I misremembered things. He said they hadn't done any filming in the area up until that day.

This is supposed to show the toes of the right foot flexing upwards and then down. It's supposed to indicate something that you would not see with a costume foot.

IMO, I'm doubtful that we are seeing an up-down flexing or movement of toes whether it be a costume or a real creature.

We've discussed this before going back years ago.

Why would the toes flex upward after a step instead of during the step?
Maybe Patty has flipper feet.

Because Bigfoot that's why.

Bigfoot plays by his own rules and we must like it or suffer the slings of coloured lines.

Did any of the scientists who were first shown the film remark on these upward flapping toes?

Napier said he couldn't see Patty's feet.

The scientists who were first shown the film did not have access to video recordings or the film itself...


But, you know that ...

Did anyone ever question Napier about not seeing Patty's feet when he first saw the PGF?

Just a guess, but I think viewing the film full frame from a projector would make it easy to miss the few times that you get a glimpse of the feet. Patty was a fairly small portion of the frame.

The feet are critical...there should have been much interest in them with a new bipedal primate.

Besides, we are told in Argosy that Napier attended a four hour session where "films and stills" were shown, also under magnification, and blow-ups were shown. Out takes and blow-ups of all kinds were shown, apparently.

It's not like they showed it to him once in a theater and then he commented.

I don't know what to say. We've discussed this before. Napier may have been shown only a portion of the PGF. It's hard to imagine that he saw the feet and then said that he didn't see them.

Sometimes it seems that there is no limit to the crazy things associated with the film.

You know the answer.

Of course, they never saw this clip which has been digitally converted, is not in color, is greatly overexposed, is not shown in real-time normal speed, does not include frames before and after the flappy flap, and who knows what else.

Yes, I think that group of scientists was shown a different PGF cut.

I have brought this up a few times before.

But why? And which cut did they see?

Osman Hill was given his own screening where he said of Patty and her walk:

Quote:
The creature portrayed is a primate and clearly hominid rather than pongid. Its erect attitude in locomotion, the gait, stride and manner of that locomotion, as well as the relative proportions of pelvic to pectoral limb are all manifestly human, together with the great development of the mammary glands. This does not, of course, preclude the possibility that it is indeed a Homo sapiens masquerading as a hairy 'giant'. All I can say, at this stage, is that if this was a masquerade, it was extremely well done and effective.
So he thought Patty and her walk appeared very much human.

How could anyone miss "blockfoot" and "perfectfoot"? Especially scientists looking at a new bipedal primate for the first time?

Paddlefoot is no longer visible in that post I made. Here it is...

It's fun to watch Patty go like hell. MK Davis made this using non-consecutive frames.
