Original U.S. Lobby Card Set Eight 11x14 Cards Very Good to Very Fine Theater-Used

Original Twentieth Century Fox Lobby Card set for the science fiction film STAR WARS: EPISODE V - THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (1980). The film was directed by Irvin Kershner and starred Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Billy Dee Williams. This was the second film to come out in the STAR WARS series, and many critics consider it to be the best film in the original trilogy with a distinctive ÒdarkÓ side. Of course, the film was produced by George Lucas. The special effects were considerably better than the first movieÑfrom the amazing invasion near the beginning by the huge Imperial Walkers, reminiscent of Hannibal's 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 STAR WARS 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. These lobby cards came from the archive of a theater that played the film. These cards - Nos 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 8 - we have graded in very fine condition. Card 4 and 6 have some minor flaws - small holes and a bent corner - and we have graded those in very good condition.
