Other Info: This quad has the traditional Tom Jung style "B" illustration with Darth Vader standing over the cast with his outstretched hand. The tagline, "The Star Wars Saga Continues" can be found in the upper left hand corner of the poster and below it is the silver / black Empire Strikes Back logo. The silver ink that was used to print the title on this original printing was a metallic ink that had to be applied to the quad via a special extra run through the printing press. Cast and crew information is on the left hand side in black lettering and this particular poster is usually found folded, when it turns up for sale at auction houses. Also notice the other colors on the poster. They are a bit more vivid than the other variation of this poster, because this one is considered the original first printing.
