There is a movie from the '50s which has a scene with two men sitting around a fire in a cave. One of the men reveals that he is actually a Yeti. Although he is shaven, with a haircut, he opens his collar to show a chest full of dense snow white hair. He hates his companion because they are different species and is about to kill him. The scene fades to black and the murder isn't shown.

Hope this meager description will be enough for someone to identify this movie for me.

  • There was probably a similar "Dr. Who" episode in the 1960's. Jun 10, 2021 at 16:26

I believe the film you are looking for is Man Beast (1956)

The group is attacked by the snowmen, with the treacherous Varga working against them behind the scenes. Hudson falls off a cliff while being chased by a yeti, and Dr. Erickson is lured into a cave by Varga, who then shoots him dead. When most of the party is dead, Varga reveals to Connie that he is actually a fifth-generation descendant of the Yeti, who for decades have been kidnapping human women and forcing them to breed with the male snowmen in an attempt to eventually wipe out the yeti strain from their DNA. - Wikipedia - Man Beast (film)

    That's... not how genetics works.

    @DavidW Actually, if yetis and humans are the same species, that's exactly how it works!

  • @CJDennis technically DavidW is correct, since "wipe out" is absolute, while Yeti DNA would only be diluted. For example, Denosovian and Neanderthal DNA still exist in humans. And if these part-Yetis unknowingly breed with each other then the Yeti DNA will definitely be preserved.

  • Thank you for quickly answering my question. My next question, is how do I watch this turkey of a movie without paying for it? Jun 11, 2021 at 3:16
  • @RonJohn Look up homeopathic remedies for how long it takes for dilution to become nothing left of the original.
