Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Folded Very Fine

Original 20th Century-Fox One-Sheet Poster for the Irvin Kershner science fiction adventure, STAR WARS: EPISODE V--THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (1980) starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Billy Dee Williams. This was the second film to be released in the STAR WARS series, and many critics consider it to be the best film in the original trilogy with a distinctive ÒdarkÓ side. The special effects were considerably better than the first movieÑfrom the amazing invasion near the beginning by the huge Imperial Walkers, reminiscent of Hannibal use of elephants in the Punic Wars, to the ultra-exciting light saber duel between Luke and Vader at the conclusion. In between, we are first introduced to Jedi master Yoda, who must try to train the impatient Luke in the ways of a Jedi warrior. While the first film is optimistic with a happy ending, this film explores the overwhelming power and relentless evil of the Dark Side. It begins gloomily and ends with just a glimmer of hope after a finale of betrayal and revelation. This original one-sheet poster was used in a theater, but has survived the years in remarkably good condition. We have graded it as very fine. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees this poster to be authentic. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
