Australian Star Wars Style "C" One-Sheet
Click to enlarge

Other Info: This one-sheet eventually superseded the rarer Thomas Jung artwork versions because of the mega box office Star Wars theatrical run in Australian cinemas, that stretched all the way up until 1982. It contains the Thomas Chantrell artwork which dominated the international advertisement campaign. The Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation felt this artwork showed the characters in far more adventurous and exciting 'action' poses, that would likely elicit filmgoers to check out the movie. It also shows the Australian film censorship "NRC" rating and it has, in yellow lettering, across the top, the "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away..." tagline. The cast and credits billing block uses black textual lettering, and it includes an even larger Star Wars logo in this area. The 20th Century Fox and Dolby Stereo emblems are found at the bottom and the printer's information - M.A.P.S. Litho Pty. Ltd. is seen on the right-hand bottom border. This one-sheet is more commonly found today, versus the 'Thomas Jung' versions.
