STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE (1977) - British UK quad film poster - Style C 'Oscar' Version - Tom Chantrell artwork - This is the "Awards Version" produced after the movie had won 7 Oscars. When George Lucas, Gary Kurtz & the Studio Executives realised just how successful this movie was likely to become their marketing strategy had to be re-assessed. The original Jung & Hildebrandt posters although iconic & artistic where not really that commercial in terms of characterisation. Tom Chantrell was drafted & in & produced this new look, all-action, bolder, brighter looking poster. Luke, Leia & Han Solo all bear an incredible likeness to their screen counterparts & the Star Wars merchandising phenomena was born - 30" x 40" (76 x 101.5 cm) - Folded (as issued)
