Star Wars 4: A New Hope


1976       Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Dir. by George Lucas

STAR WARS 1977 Original ADVANCE Movie Posters MINT! They are amongst the rarest and most sought after original Star Wars movie posters. Fox distributed all 3 of these posters in 1977 for the first Star Wars film. I have posted Interesting information and research about these posters is below:

The original press-book for Star Wars instructs theater managers to "wild post in and around campuses; on bulletin boards, in meeting halls, cafeterias, bookstores, music shops, everywhere students congregate." These SUPER RARE ADVANCE mini window posters were used for exactly that purpose, as well as being displayed at the movie theater ticket counters.

Mini window posters have been used by the motion picture industry since the silent film days. Not all films released had mini window posters. Mostly big films such as The Wizard of Oz, King Kong, Casablanca, all the way to 2001: A Space Odyssey used mini window posters. They are among the rarest of all posters made, MUCH RARER than the one sheets! Most were hung and used, few survived.

No Star Wars poster collection is complete without these!

When Fox began to market Star Wars in early 1977 they could not decide on how to market the film. Mark Hamill did a QVC television program on Oct. 28, 1992 and was quoted to say, "When [Star Wars] opened we didn't have any posters--we just had photographs outside the building." He elaborates by saying that, "Fox wasn't sure what campaign to go with--an adventure, a 2001 odyssey, etc."

The 3 mini window posters offered here demonstrate nicely the early Star Wars campaign in progress. The wordy Teaser pictured in the middle (see photo #1) speaks of "Odyssey" and "Imagination" but does not deliver. This poster was dropped from the campaign early on, before the film's release. The final version, taken from the film's lead-in, was only ready shortly before the May release date in 1977.

All 3 of these posters are in MINT condition! The first one with the May 25 release date measures 7 1/2" x 6 3/4". The "Odyssey" version with the PG logo measures 9 1/2" x 7 3/4," and the Final version with the Dolby logo measures 8x10 inches.
