The Empire Strikes Back (now known as "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back"), the classic 1980 Irvin Kershner science fiction (sci-fi) outer space action adventure sequel ("The Star Wars Saga Continues"; "Story by George Lucas") starring Mark Hamill (as Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (as Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (as Princess Leia), Billy Dee Williams (as Lando Calrissian), Anthony Daniels ("as C-3PO"), David Prowse ("as Darth Vader"), Kenny Baker ("as R2-D2"), Peter Mayhem ("as Chewbacca"), Frank Oz ("as Yoda"), Alec Guinness (as Obi-Wan Kenobi), Jeremy Bulloch (as Boba Fett), and John Hollis (as Lobot)

Artist: Tom Jung
Important Added Info: Note that this poster is clearly not the regular U.S. "style B" one-sheet. It has exactly the same image, and yet the coloring is different (on the regular U.S. "style B" one-sheet, the color is a light sky blue, while on this poster, the color is a darker lavender type color). The printing in the bottom border is also different. The title is on the lower left on this poster while it is on the lower right of the other poster, and this poster says "ONE SHEET B", while the regular poster says "STYLE B", and they are in different positions. Finally, the regular poster has an NSS number in the bottom right, and this one does not. This is because this poster was printed for internal use by 20th Century-Fox and LucasFilm, and these posters were never distributed to theaters. This information was confirmed for us by Steve Sansweet and Pete Vilmur, the authors of the "Star Wars Poster Book", and they say that there are fewer of these posters than there are of the NSS version (we have sold many times more examples of the blue version than we have of this purple variant style). We auctioned another example of this poster in similar condition in our special Star Wars auction held in May of 2014, and that example auctioned for $975!

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good to fine. The poster was never folded. It had a few of the most minor of tiny scuffs in the lower background area. Overall, the poster was in very good to fine condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was nicely backed, and displays well!
