Thanks for that!

That's something a lot of the researchers don't talk about - most Sasquatch creatures have a zipper running up their back... :shock:

I like how the space people are watching Lee Majors and Sasquatch wrestling around in the forest. I can just picture Bart Simpson shouting, "This movie has everything!!!"

Yes. And I noticed his tight pants, which didn't leave much to the imagination. Why didn't Robocop dress so provocatively???

I'm about to watch this and relive a traumatic time of my life when I was five years old and saw this episode for the first and only time ... until now ... haha

Are you talking about the entire episode, or just the YouTube clip?

If its the whole episode, let me know if that "spinning tunnel" sequence is in this episode after all.

Yes, it's there. That whole story arc is one of the all-time favorites of the series.

I wish they'd release both Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman on DVD in the US. I think they've been available for quite a while over in Europe.

Here's that same clip, minus the stuff at the bottom. Enjoy!

The clip of the episode ... I can't remember the whole episode as I was very young at the time ... but watching the clip was quite nostalgic. Especially how much of a coincidence that Steve Austin bodyslammed Andre the Giant before Hulk Hogan did! lmao

There is a Brand-New Bigfoot movie playing at Cannes! But is it any good?
Oddest movie is Duane Graves and Justin Meeks’ THE WILDMAN OF THE NAVIDAD from Kim Henkel, famed producer of the original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. It’s a deliberately retro-styled BIGFOOT type Z movie that now only tests the patience.

From Greeks Productions and the producer of the original 70's horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre comes The Wild Man of the Navidad. This vintage horror tale is based on the real-life journals of Dale S. Rogers. Shot in a 70's style B-movie aesthetic, Mr. Roger's veracious accounts are brought to vivid, chilling life in this intelligent retelling of an old rural legend involving a small Texas community terrified for years by a mysterious creature inhabiting the nearby woods.

The trailer looks not bad!

Wow, Excellent find Sherb!!!!!! I can't wait.

Did you watch the YouTube documentary on the film? I guess it has a basis of an actual legend, i.e. the Texas Historical marker and the telling of the tale through generations. I have never heard of this case (not that means anything) but of course I want to hear more about it.

As far as the movie trailer, the Sasquatch looks like a vagrant covered in rags but hey....if this is one directors vision of the creature than who am I to judge? Besides, I am a B movie fanatic and this was meant to be shot in a 70s movie, B Grade style so therefore, I will love it!!!!!!!

Thanks for sharing
:D :D :D

Too funny! The creature in that poster doesn't look scary at all. It looks like someone making an advertising pitch. Looks like he's smiling. Reminds me of Jimmy Durante saying, "I got a million of 'em..." :D

LMAO Dan!

It also resembles something out of that old children's book "Where the Wild things are"

Hey Dan

Is this your troubled teenage Sasquatch delinquent scene? Fast forward to between 2:00 and 2:15 (or watch the whole thing....good stuff :D )

Sorry 13 -- I don't know how I missed your post from almost a year ago. :oops: The video has been removed now, so I don't know... Feel free to PM me if I don't respond to something -- sometimes I just miss stuff for whatever reason...

No problem Dan. That clip was from the 1977 movie "Sasquatch the Legend Of Bigfoot" and reenacts the attack on Fred Beck and a group of miners near Mt St Helens in 1924. One of the miners shot and killed a Sasquatch and they retaliated (sp) by pelting the cabin with rocks and tried to get in. I will keep an eye out for it. I will also own that movie someday. In the meantime, feel free to read about the incident here:

Yes, that sounds exactly like what I remember -- and 1977 would fit in with me seeing those types of films, as well. :D
