If you catch any of the films tomorrow, you might keep the little gem of information in mind that when one of Stewart’s most occult films appeared (Bell, Book, and Candle, image above) during 1959, this is the same year Stewart found himself enmeshed in the Yeti search.

Disney Yeti

The Pangboche Hand, the so-called Yeti Hand, has been the point of much discussion since 1959, in the West, which I summarized in Tom Slick: True Life Encounters in Cryptozoology (Fresno, CA: Craven Street-Linden Press, 2002). Some of it involves the late actor Jimmy Stewart arranging the transport of the Pangboche Hand from India to London. (The International Cryptozoology Museum has on display a letter from Jimmy Stewart about this episode.)

About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
