They each include a large blue stylized text film title logo, Guerre stellari, and they also have an illustration of a cosmic dogfight between a TIE-fighter and an evading X-wing starfighter, set in a starry spacescape, created by the Sicilian artist Michelangelo Papuzza. Included at the top are the 20th Century Fox emblem and the announcement, "20th Century-Fox presenta una produzione Lucasfilm Ltd.". You will also find a column list of the cast, directors, and music credits, along with the Italian document printing information, and the Dolby Systems - Technicolor - Panavision symbols. This particular poster shows the film scene of Luke Skywalker, Obi-wan Kenobi, R2-D2, and C-3PO sitting in their landspeeder when they first arrive at the Mos Eisley spaceport. They are being questioned by a squad of Imperial Stormtroopers. (See pic below)
