It really would be worth the time Earl, it is not all that long, half an hour would answer most of your questions.
No, you are wrong, suits were made even better much earlier than this. It's a myth. The only suit designer to say it could be real is Bill Munns, the best in the business, such as Chambers say they could have done the suit much better themselves.
No they are not real. I have spent considerable time investigating this field, and I feel in this instance my hard work has finally paid of. Although it was pretty rewarding as I went along.
No, Bob was a known prankster and had worn suits to the town pub before to make people laugh, he was the town joker. And Patterson siad he would get $1,000.00 for the prank, but never paid up.
It makes sense when you look at one of Patterson's favourite subjects - Bigfoot. When Ivan Sanderson managed quite some success with his article in Argosy, Patterson became inspired, and released a pamphlet/booklet of his own. It did not quite get te publics attention as Sanderson did, so he went bigger and better, and eventually did the film. Only 12 years earlier, a man called William Roe claimed to have seen Bigfoot, and he gave quite a detailed description. His Bigfoot drawing looked like this:
Going by his heavy set description, this seems to be Patterson's inspiration.
BF is human? I agree, Hobosapiens.
How conversant are you with analogue film and it capabilities.
