Original U.S. One-Sheet Teaser Movie Poster (27x41) Folded Very Fine Plus Condition

Original 20th Century-Fox Advance or Teaser one-sheet poster for the Irvin Kershner science fiction adventure, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (1980) starring 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 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. This original advance one-sheet is folded and is in very fine plus condition. A really nice example of the poster. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic, vintage poster for this film.
