Harry and the Hendersons, a 1987 Americanmarker film directed and produced by William Dear, and starring John Lithgow, Melinda Dillon, Lainie Kazan and Don Ameche, is the tragi-comic story of a family's encounter with the cryptozoological creature Bigfoot. The film won an Academy Award for Makeup, and inspired a follow-up TV series, also called Harry and the Hendersons.

The film was released as Bigfoot and the Hendersons in the United Kingdommarker, though the TV series retained the American title.

Bruce Broughton composed the music throughout the entire film, and Joe Cocker performs "Love Lives On" (later released in 1989) during the end credits.


On their way home to Seattlemarker from a camping trip, the Hendersons accidentally run over a strange and unknown creature. Unsure what else to do, they strap it to the roof of their car and take it home. Once there, the revived creature goes wild, rampaging throughout the house. Eventually, the family realizes that the creature is the legendary Bigfoot, and is actually very gentle. Given the name "Harry", the creature's curiosity leads him to escape, running through the city as sightings of him strike fear into the populace (and greed into the heart of one French Canadian). Trying to hide Harry from the Seattle authorities and the hunter who wants his hide, the Hendersons come to realize that the best thing for Harry is to return him to his home in the wilderness.
