FROM ABOUT 1979 TO 1984 ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTERS WERE PRIMARILY USED IN VIDEO STORES. THE FINAL DECISION ON VIDEO STORE RENTAL LAW WASN’T MADE UNTIL 1984. HOWEVER, BY THEN THE COURT AND THE STUDIOS SEEN THE INDUSTRY GROW OUT OF CONTROL WHILE STILL IN COURT. THEY WERE ALREADY PRODUCING THE VIDEOS AND JOINING IN THE BUSINESS IN A BIG WAY WHILE STILL IN COURT FIGHTING THE LEGALITY OF THE BUSINESS. The Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Sony v. By the end of 1983 there were eight million video recorders in use in the U. That number would soar as the legality of home recording seemed settled. Nonetheless, the studios lobbied Congress for a law that would attach a royalty or surcharge to the sale of VCRs and blank tapes. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL 14X36 “INSERT” POSTER FROM THE 1982 RELEASE ON VIDEO. VERY VERY FINE-NEAR MINT. THE ART ON THE VIDEO POSTER IS CROPPED DIFFERENT THAN THE CLEVELAND AND THE CALIFORNIA PRINTED ORIGINAL THEATRE RELEASE INSERT, IT IS VERY COMMON FOR THIS TO HAPPEN WITH DIFFERENT PRINTERS AND DIFFERENT PRINT RUNS. LOTS OF MISINFORMATION HAS BEEN SPREAD ABOUT MOVIE POSTERS. LUCAS HAD A NUMBER OF POSTERS PRINTED AWAY FROM THE NSS AND SOMETIMES NON UNION. SOMETIMES THE SAME PRINT SHOP PRINTED THEM AS THE NSS PRINTED ONES. I HAVE ONLY SEEN 8 OF THESE POSTERS IN 30 YEARS. The blue background gives the large photo a yellow tint on my monitor at the top, I do not know if it will on everyones, it is not yellowed at all, it is still close to minty white. BELOW IS THE THEATRE RELEASE BOTTOM. IF THE PICTURE DOESNT SHOW! IT IS BEING RAN PRIVATE TO ELIMINATE THE USE OF MY AUCTIONS BY SCANDALOUS PEOPLE.
