Other Info: This original Russian release poster was used to promote the film in '91, during the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The dark/brownish surrealist artwork was done by Aleksandr Chantsev, who was one of Majstrovsky's protégés. (Igor Majstrovsky did the style "A" foreign poster for Russia, used for the premiere showing of the film in September 1990). This smaller lobby poster is known as the "Cantina" (Кантина) because of the three alien heads surrounded by the cosmic space flares. It is also referred to as #650. It was published by the all-union advertising-информационный enterprise "Reklamfilm". The Russian Star Wars title "Звёздные войны" is found across the top in white lettering, and below the logo it says, "Галактическии Вестерн Производство - Сша • Автор Сценария Джордж Лукас В Ролях: М. Хэмилл, Х. Форд, А. Гиннес, К. Фишер и др." (Galactic Western Production - USA • Scriptwriter George Lucas Cast: M. Hamill, H. Ford, A. Guinness, K. Fisher and others.). The red distributor emblem (dp) is on the lower left-hand side, and this poster can be found in both matte and glossy paper versions. Copyright information - Художник А. Чанцев. 1991. Редактор Л.
