Other Info: This small poster contains the famous unaltered 'Gone with the Wind' style artwork. Lando Calrissian, Boba Fett, the rebel 1.4 FD P-Tower light laser cannon, on the middle right-hand side, and the floating Cloud City, are all still in the illustration. This was different from the final key art used in the United States, which omitted these images and a few other key elements from Roger Kastel's original sketch. The tagline, in white lettering, is across the top and it says, "La Guerre des étoiles Continue..." (Star Wars Continues), and in the middle-lower third is the L'Empire contre-attaque logo in yellow, sitting atop the cast and credits billing block. At the bottom are the 20th Century Fox, Meccano, RSO Records, and Dolby Stereo emblems. This poster was used in the province of Quebec, and it contains a 'Bureau de surveillance du cinéma' seal found affixed in the lower section of the artwork, next to the right bottom corner.
