FRANK MERRIWELL
1970

This is one of those shows that went by like a blur during 1970. As I recall, it was a pastiche melodrama based on the stiff-upper-lipped hero of the dime novels produced by Sandy Farber and starring Walter Bobbie. This is actually the color comp that I sent them which they had printed while I was awaiting their approval. The show ran for one performance which I was not even invited to see. But during this period I did a series of posters that were faces looking out at you, the viewer. Though all are different, they do make an interesting series, which I put together at the time in a folder called Heads. The series includes Follies; Godspell; Jesus Christ, Superstar; Frank Merriwell; The Survival of St. Joan and Soon.
