STAR WARS, Part IV: 1977. Original Australian 1 Sheet (26 3/4″ x 40 1/4″) movie cinema poster for sale and starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Alec Guinness, Peter Cushing, and directed by George Lucas. “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”
This Australian 1 sheet is the same Tom William Chantrell artwork featured in the infamous Star Wars (Style C) poster (also for sale on our site). The main difference is of course the light blue toning featured throughout the poster. In addition, the text on the bottom margin is completely different reading “M.A.P.S. Litho Pty. Ltd.” which stands for “Mailing And Printing Services” and was an Australian printing company located in Sydney. It was established in 1967 by David Seton and closed up shop officially in 2009, but stopped printing movie posters in the late 80s (Ref.) It is not known if this poster has been properly reproduced, but this is a guaranteed original that was purchased from the family of an Australian Cinema projectionist.
The poster has been immaculately preserved as can be clearly seen by clicking on the photo of the poster to enlarge it. There is the slightest wear along the fold lines with the most exagerated wear along the bottom horizontal fold and cross fold. This poster is folded and in near mint, investment grade condition.
Condition C9. For Sale $895
