Handbill from the movie, "The Endless Summer" released in 1966

Description (Brief)
Handbill advertising a screening of the “The Endless Summer” movie held on July 1st at the Beach Convention Hall and a July 28th screening at the Asbury Park Convention Hall. "The Endless Summer" movie was written, produced and directed by Bruce Brown. Brown also served as the narrator of this surf ‘diary’ following two young surfers for one summer, around the globe, in search of the “perfect wave.” It was in limited release in 1964 and released worldwide in 1966 grossing $5 million domestically and over $20 million worldwide. Its simplicity was part of its enduring appeal and while naïve and corny to today’s audiences it was an integral part of surf history. “The Endless Summer” introduced the world to surfing, a nation of bored teens to the idea of travel and created a popularity of surf culture that endures today.
