The Yeti is a mythical creature, half man, half beast, who according to legend lived in the mountains of the Himalayas, also called the "abominable snowman". From extraordinary size, this being a cross between man and monkey. In 1889, Colonel W. Waddell found a giant footprint of 18.5 inches in the snow. In 1936, another explorer, Fank Smythe, also found footprints in the snow excessive. Since then, more or less regular expeditions take place in order to find other traces of sending certainty the existence of such a creature, but without convincing results (the last dating back to 1975). In 1967, Roger Patterson would have filmed the Yeti, but the film was reported very controversial and Patterson could never really prove the truth of it. Although exciting, this creature does not seem to have inspired writers and directors, excepted for Val Guest, with his movie The Abominable Showman in 1957, starring Peter Cushing who also plays for Eugenio Martín in Horror Express in 1972 alongside with Christopher Lee and Telly Savalas or recently Rob Cohen with The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor in 2008.
