Other Info: This poster has scenes from the movie that compliment the Italian (fotobusta) lobby poster series. If you look closely, you will notice that Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia have brightly colored pastel clothing. The re-coloring of their costume outfits was sometimes done in European markets to emphasize a promotional advertisement. At the top left of the poster is an illustration of a cosmic dogfight between a TIE-fighter and an X-wing, done by the Sicilian artist Michelangelo Papuzza. There is also an inset picture of Luke and Leia surveying the Death Star chasm for their escape options. In the middle-lower third of the poster is the Italian Guerre Stellari film logo, in blue, along with the two droids and the cast and credits billing block. The poster also has the common distributor stamp pinholes found on Italian movie posters of that era. (See pic below)
