1980 STYLE "A" GWTW 40x60! Here is one of the top 10 Star Wars originals of all time! In fact, it's considered the #1 BEST Harrison Ford film poster ever issued by the NSS (National Screen Service): A BONA FIDE ORIGINAL. 1980 Empire Strikes Back Style "A" 40x60 inch Movie Theater ONLY poster display! Originally referred to as the "Gone With the Wind, " this artwork became known as the style "A" only by default.Billy Dee Williams questioned why he wasn't pictured on it (along with all of the other billed actors) at the film's premiere. 20th Century-Fox and Lucasfilm didn't have a good answer to Williams' surprise inquiry, leaving both studios standing there with a mess of egg splattered all over their faces.
They scrambled quickly to issue the style "B" artwork with a small but clear image of Lando Calrissian, Billy D's now famous movie character. This glorious style "A" artwork was then immediately suspended - both companies dropping it from their primary campaigns to avoid any chance of undo publicity - rendering the "Gone With the Wind, " gone with the wind. THIS IS 100% GUARANTEED ORIGINAL RARE 1980 PRINTING. This more than amazing 40x60 is one of the few originals that was issued to the theaters before all that hubbub broke. It was issued by the National Screen Service directly.
This particular original was immediately paced in a tube way back then, over 35 years ago! It hasn't seen the light of day until now.Hopefully, some lucky new owner can enjoy it for the next 35 years. I ONLY sell genuine rare originals.

A 40x60 MOVIE POSTER DISPLAY. Is a Premium deluxe poster used exclusively for display at premiere movie theaters. The format dates back to the 1930's and they were ALWAYS the highest quality movie posters made for in-theater use. They were also the most costly for theater owners to rent, as they were NEVER issued for sale - as much as ten times - or even more - that of a one sheet movie poster rental!
So needless to say, only the flagship theaters got these. Less than one 40x60 for every 100 one-sheets were printed in this size by the NSS, making them the rarest of the theater posters.
Finer printing on deluxe art quality pape. R as well as the eye catching size made the cost easy to swallow for those who justify the added expense and space.
