    Description

    Star Wars (20th Century Fox, 1977). Rolled, Very Fine. British Quad (30" X 40") Pre-Academy Award Style, Greg and Tim Hildebrandt Artwork.
    Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Darth Vader (James Earl Jones and David Prowse), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) have become household names, thanks to George Lucas' action-packed science fiction blockbuster. The Hildebrandt brothers were reportedly only given 48 hours to complete the artwork. The Star Wars Poster Book recounts that they both would paint the artwork featured on this poster, where one would paint while the other would sleep. They rushed the delivery a few days later and finished up the artwork at the studio by adding C3PO and R2D2 to the right of Luke and Leia. This poster was released in November of 1977 and was reportedly only used in London until New Years Eve when it was replaced with the Thomas Chantrell quad. This very scarce colorful quad displays such signs of handling as mild edge wear, slight creasing, as well as minor tears. Also visible are thin surface scuffs and some light foxing. There is a piece of paper tape on the verso.
