Thai Star Wars Style "C" Academy Awards One-Sheet
Click to enlarge

Other Info: This Thailand film poster replaced the original version and added the additional Seven Academy Awards information in the credits area along with this tagline - "The Master of the Space Universe". It also has a blue framed blurb that listed the three main actors - มาร์ก แฮมิลล์ (Mark Hamill), แฮร์ริสัน ฟอร์ด (Harrison Ford), and แคร์รี ฟิชเชอร์ (Carrie Fisher). The Thomas Chantrell artwork area has no Thai language text elements overlaid on it, unlike the original print version, and the title of the film was corrected to สตาร์ วอร์ส from "The War of the World" seen on the initial posters. In the bottom border it has the ฉายที่ and วันที่ text symbols (Projected at: / Date:) where cinemas could write-in manual theater information. This Thai poster was also featured on the front cover, along with several other international Star Wars movie posters, of an employees brochure folder put out by 20th Century Fox in 1994. If we hadn't ever seen that brochure photo, we might never have known to track down this poster version from Bangkok. It appears that this version is extremely rare and the copy we are showing here in the archive came from a collector in Thailand. He preserved the poster structure from the bugs and water damage by pasting it onto another less valuable Thai film poster.
