One of the most scarce and most desirable Star Wars Poster. The non-Oscar version of the UK Quad Style C film poster - a key item for any serious. Designed by Tom Chantrell, who was tasked with enhancing the star appeal and the merchandising opportunities for Fox and George Lucas. Was released in the UK ahead of the Oscar Awards, but as soon as these were announced, posters were printed with additional Oscar text.
The early non-Oscar version was printed in only limited numbers, making this version significantly rarer than the Oscars version. This poster is un restored, not line backed and in beautiful condition, languishing in a cupboard for the past 40+ years. Please see the photos for the condition. However a brief summary below.
Size 30 x 40 inches Standard UK Quad Size. Pin hole bottom left corner, very slight paper loss. Slight scuff bottom right corner resulting in white marks by the Fox logo. Slight scuff between the credits and the tile, small white mark (no paper loss).
Scuff on top right corner, no paper loss. Writing in biro (lightly) " Star Wars M Hayler" this does not bleed through. A very desirable poster that has appreciated significantly in previous years and will surely continue its upward value.
