Other Info: This daybill has the advance photo layout of the floating Darth Vader head on a black starry background. Across the top it says, "The Star Wars Saga Continues", and below the Empire Strikes Back logo is the cast and credits along with the "NRC" censorship emblem. The 20th Century Fox and Dolby Stereo emblems are seen in the middle. In the bottom third of the poster, it has a square green/black duotone photo image of the initial meeting between Luke Skywalker, Yoda, and R2-D2, on the planet system of Dagobah. At the bottom is the printer information - M.A.P.S. Litho Pty. Ltd., seen in the right hand bottom border. Interesting Note* - 20th Century Fox had kept the Yoda character out of most of the pre-theatrical advertisements, so movie-goers wouldn't see him until watching the movie for the first time on the big screen. In the USA, he didn't appear on any of the theatrical posters until the summer '81 re-release, so that makes this daybill quite unique, with him appearing early on in the Australian market.
