Other Info: This series of Italian "Fotobusta" lobby posters, all show different movie scenes that help to promote the sci-fi Star Wars film. 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 scene of Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker looking down into the Death Star chasm, from a slightly different angle of the movie scene versus the non-inset version, wondering how they will escape across the open mechanical drawbridge. Luke's tunic has also been turned bright orange. The inset picture, located in the upper left-hand corner of the movie still, has Luke Skywalker curled up in an overcoat garment while witnessing the demise of his homestead on Tatooine. His landspeeder is in the background, along with a vapor spire tower.
