Signs was released August 2, 2002.
The modern history of the Loch Ness monster begins with a reported
sighting by George Spicer and his wife on July 22, 1933.
July 27, 1972 was the date of one of many of Frank Searle’s photos
of the monster that show it with two humps.
The July 14, 1951 Lachlan Stuart photo, the July 29, 1955 McNab photo
and the August 7, 1972 photo by Robert Rines were later found to be
physically impossible, a photographic hoax and massively retouched (respectively).
