After almost 45 years, the beloved Charles B. Pierce film classic readies for the 1st OFFICIAL HOME release in history, after being fully-restored & remastered at The George Eastman Museum and Audio Mechanics, resurrecting the wide-angle Techniscope format, along with the brilliant Technicolors, and pioneering sound! The film’s iconic poster art by Ralph McQuarrie (Star Wars) stands as a testament to the contributions ‘The Legend of Boggy Creek’ made to independent filmmakers, from ‘The Blair Witch Project’ to modern-day crime docudramas that mimic the format today. This true story follows reports of a “Bigfoot-type” creature said to lurk the swampy bottomlands of Fouke, Arkansas, and captures the atmospheric tone of the culture. Made in 1972 for about $160K, and grossing over $25M ($144M adjusted for inflation) in it’s original theatrical run between 1972-75, it’s one of the highest-grossing documentaries of ALL TIME!
