Original international style-C 1 Sheet movie poster 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…” According to the original print records, this poster was primarily for international distribution. Most of the posters were destroyed, but reports show that about 1000 of them were distributed to the general public with 100 of them having a PG ratings box. <Reference> because of this fact these style C posters tend to be more costly than all other original star wars style posters.
