    Description

    Big Wednesday (John Severson, 1961). Very Fine/Near Mint. College Poster (8.5" X 14") John Severson Artwork.
    The delightful piece of artwork by film director John Severson highlights this rare college movie poster and is considered extremely collectible today. Severson, who holds a MA for Art Education, displays his imagination with his vision of a hand-drawn surfer awkwardly charging down the face of a giant wave. The film displays the unharnessed power of Hawaii's North Shore, especially Waimea Bay, and is now considered one of Severson's greatest films. In 1978, famed Hollywood director John Millius "borrowed" the movie title for his own big screen surfing film that had no other relation to the Severson film from 1961. The poster is in excellent condition.
