    Description

    The Empire Strikes Back (20th Century Fox, 1980). Radio Thirty Second Pitch Board (19.5" X 30").
    Fans of the Star Wars saga are in for a treat with this unique lot featuring an original "pitch board" for a 30-second radio and television spot. This particular example features a fantastic drawing of Princess Leia addressing a group of people, C-3PO, and R2-D2 on a giant "advent" TV screen. She warns that Darth Vader did not, in fact, die when the Deathstar was destroyed, and that he continues to plot evil and destruction. This special piece is a first time offer from Heritage and there is sure to be considerable interest from collectors. The poster is mounted on 1/4" foam board, and shows a bit of smudging in the bottom section and along the edges. Also offered in this auction is a 60-second pitch board featuring Darth Vader. From the collection of the late John L. Williams, noted Star Wars collector. Fine/Very Fine.
