    The Wild Country Poster Concept Painting by Paul Wenzel (Walt Disney, 1970). "The newcomers, green as the mountain country. They stood together to claim a dream" states the theatrical poster for this movie. This film had the distinction of starring a young Ron Howard with his younger brother Clint. Steve Forest and Vera Miles played the parents, with Jack Elam as the villain. It was released on 12/15/70. This is a Paul Wenzel original acrylic design/concept painting of the family fleeing from the monstrous cyclone hitting their ranch home. The image of the family was repeated on the final version of the three sheet poster for this film. Art is in acrylics on board, matted with an opening of 11" x 14"; overall mat size is 18" x 21". Mr. Wenzel has signed the mat, which also includes a pasted-on Walt Disney Productions copyright notice. Art is in Fine condition.
