The Endless Summer, the classic 1964 Bruce Brown surfing sports documentary ("A true motion picture about surfing!"; "Filmed in Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Hawaii and California"; "A Bruce Brown Film in Color"; "On any day of the year it's summer somewhere in the world. Bruce Brown's latest color film highlights the adventures of two young American surfers, Robert August and Mike Hynson who follow this everlasting summer around the world. Their unique expedition takes them to Senegal, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Hawaii and California. Share their experiences as they search the world for that perfect wave which may be forming just over the next Horizon.") featuring Mike Hynson, Robert August, Lord 'Tally Ho' Blears, Terence Bullen, and Bruce Brown (as narrator). Note that when Bruce Brown first made this documentary, he had already made similar documentary surfing films (first with an 8mm camera, and then with a 16mm camera), starting in the late 1950s. None of those received a nationwide release, but instead were shown wherever Bruce Brown could get them booked (mostly in small venues in southern California)! In 1963, Brown began filming this movie, and it was completed in 1964, and he began showing it in small venues, just like his previous films. He continued showing it to enthusiastic audiences throughout 1965, and in 1966, Columbia Pictures made a deal to give the film a nationwide release, and the first one-sheets for the movie were printed at that time, using the same John Van Hamersveld art that had been on the small posters used in small venues (Bruce Brown was friends with John Van Hamersveld in 1964, and Brown hired him to do the art for the first release small venue posters, because, as Brown has been quoted saying, "He was the only artist I knew"). He paid Van Hamersveld $150 for the art, and it was one of the greatest deals ever made, because it is certainly one of the most iconic images of the 1960s, and this poster image is one of the single most recognizable movie poster images ever made!
If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: very good. The poster is linenbacked; prior to restoration the poster had extra creases down the left foldline (with a few small areas of paper loss) and extra creases across the bottom foldline; the poster was well linenbacked; you can still see evidence of restoration at the top of the left foldline, but overall, the poster looks quite nice and it has truly not had much restoration!
