Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: 1978
  • Filming locations: California and Hawaii.
  • BIG WEDNESDAY takes place in five acts: South Swell (summer 1962), West Swell (1965), North Swell (summer 1968), Great Swell (spring 1974), and finally Big Wednesday (1977).
  • BIG WEDNESDAY was released the same year as THE DEER HUNTER (which looked at the Vietnam war through the eyes of a group of friends in Pennsylvania), and its political content was amplified by the comparison between the two films.
  • There is rumored to be an R-rated version of the film, never shown in the U.S., from which 8 minutes of rescue scenes and dialogue between Sally and Bear were cut in order to achieve a PG rating.
