The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972) Poster


Nearly all of the cast never appeared in another film.
The film was a tremendous success at drive-ins. It grossed $22 million, making it the 7th highest grossing movie of 1972.
The film is based upon actual reported encounters with a Bigfoot creature in the Fouke-Boogy Creek area of Arkansas throughout the 1960s and early 1970s. Most of the actors in the film were the actual people from the encounters.
Though Vern Stierman narrates the film, it's actually director Charles B. Pierce heard interviewing some of the locals during audio clips. Pierce also sings the film's folk theme song.
Director / producer Charles B. Pierce received funding for the film by borrowing $160,000 from an Arkansas trucking company, and filmed it on an older-model movie camera the production acquired.
