ORIGINAL, RARE 1978 “STAR WARS”. One sheet (27″ x 41″). Movie poster to the blockbuster film starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Alec Guiness, Peter Cushing, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. This artwork is known among “Star Wars” poster memorabilia collectors as the “Style D” poster which is commonly referred to as the “Circus Artwork”, as the poster mimics an old circus poster that has been hung over a long period of time, exposed to the elements and has a ripped, tattered and torn appearance. This artwork was commissioned by the studio, Twentieth Century-Fox (and Lucasfilm) for the re-release of the film to theater chains in the summer of 1978. This beautiful painting was the work of long-time “Star Wars” and Lucasfilm artist, Drew Struzan and Charlie White III. “Star Wars” writer and director, George Lucas has stated this is his favorite artwork/painting that was created for “Star Wars” and is highly sought after among “Star Wars” poster enthusiasts and memorabilia collectors. This is the exact same poster artwork issued to theaters, with the exception of NSS (National Screen Service) number and property information, style D confirmation in bottom right corner and GAU Union logo since this is not an original movie poster, but it is an original movie soundtrack promotional poster. Also present is an advertising oval at the bottom left of the poster (please see photo # 5) stating that the original soundtrack was available on 20th Century-Fox Records. This poster was only distributed to record stores in conjunction with the film’s re-release and is very rare. The poster was machine folded by the printer (as almost all one sheet posters were up until the mid-late 1980′s and early 1990′s) and has been stored flat for the last 20+ years in an acid-free printer’s proofing box. It has never been displayed in any fashion. This is from my large personal collection of “Star Wars” movie posters. The condition of the poster is overall very fine + with light fold lines. There is no tape, holes, tears or missing paper. Colors are strong and robust. This is a beautiful, well-preserved copy that comes from a smoke-free, pet-free and climate controlled environment. The back of the poster has a slightly yellow hue to it (acid contained in the paper) (please see photo # 12) which is common for a poster that is 40 years old. Thanks for your interest.
