Once a movie finished its theatrical engagement, theaters were instructed to return these posters to the NSS or destroy them! They were NEVER intended to be circulated among the general public. This Star Wars half sheet poster is a great investment opportunity!THIS IS A VERY RARE POSTER DUE TO THIS ALTERNATE ARTWORK BY ARTIST TOM JUNG AND IS HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER BY collectors and movie memorabilia enthusiasts. Also, the size of this poster is extremely popular with collectors due to its horizontal format and it's much less expensive to frame than a traditional one sheet. Half sheet posters (as well as insert, 30" x 40" and 40" x 60" posters) were all printed on a heavy card stock making them much more durable than traditional one sheet posters which could cause some light creasing due to the nature of the thick card stock. The poster has a tiny crease in lower left corner, two very minor creases on the top border, a very, very tiny tear (see photo # 11) and some very light creases in the body of the poster.
Otherwise, it's beautifully preserved! The poster is in EXCELLENT + condition. There are no pinholes, no staple holes, no tape and no writing on the front or back.
The colors are deep, bold and robust. This is a FANTASTIC poster and features what many consider to be the best artwork commissioned for the film! The poster has been stored flat in an acid-free printer's proofing box and comes from a smoke-free, pet-free and climate controlled environment. It's NEVER been displayed since I acquired it over 35+ years ago and comes from my personal movie poster collection. Ships to lower 48 states.
