Star Wars (1977)
This is an original, rolled, rated, printer's proof, Style C one-sheet movie poster from 1977 for Star Wars starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Alec Guinness, James Earl Jones, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. George Lucas directed the classic, science fiction film. Tom William Chantrell is the artist for the poster.
The vast majority of Style C one sheets that were printed for use in theaters had blue title lettering and were international one-sheets without an MPAA rating. There was an alternate Style C that was printed in extremely small numbers with black title lettering and an MPAA rating. This poster is one of the scarce, rated Style C one-sheets.
The poster was sourced directly from a former employee of Gore Graphics which printed these one-sheets back in 1977. Printer's proofs are test posters that are printed in very small numbers to gain final apprival before being printed in large qualities. These posters are highly desirable for collectors as there is no risk of it being a reproduction. This poster was also stored away from air and light for over 45 years. It measures 28" x 41" and is in very good to excellent, unused condition with an extremely light crease on the upper-left corner of the white edge and a speck of discoloration at the top of the white edge (straight up from Dark Vader's helmet). The poster has never been folded. This test poster has been very carefully sourced and comes with a lifetime, money-back guarantee of authenticity.
Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image.
This extremely rare and collectible poster, printed in 1977 to promote the initial theatrical release of Star Wars, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
