Other Info: This glossy flyer or handbill was sent out to potential cinemas to advertise the film (sort of like a press book). It has a wide white border around the whole graphic design. This front image contains the classic international montage by Michel Jouin. At the top of the illustration is a blue starry background with several spacecraft (X-wings, Star Destroyer, TIE-fighters) speeding towards or flying away from the Death Star II image. The composition is segmented into different scenes from the film starting with Darth Vader's helmet in the middle and the Emperor's Royal Guard standing on duty. The Rebels are clustered below him with Luke Skywalker holding his lightsaber up in the air and Han Solo firing his blaster pistol. Just above them are several Ewoks and Jabba the Hutt in his palace. The battle on the Forest Moon of Endor is on the left-hand side, highlighted with green tones, and there are scenes from the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon on Tatooine on the right, highlighted by yellow and orange overtones. The poster illustration is cropped by a light blue semi-frame and at the bottom, in black lettering, it contains the cast, credits, and the 20th Century Fox, Fox-Hachette Distribution, and Dolby Stereo emblems. The Le Retour Du Jedi logo is at the top of the poster in white lettering, while there is an English title, "Return of the Jedi" just below the design in small lettering. On the back side, it contains a synopsis of the film along with several movie scene photos. It also lets the potential customers know the length of the film and what types of "materiel publicitaire" (promotional materials - posters /lobby cards) that could be used to promote the film.
