Other Info: This one-sheet contains the Thomas Jung style "B" collage illustration framed with a white border. At the top of the "Action" themed drawing above Darth Vader and his outstretched hand is the tagline and it says, "The Star Wars Saga Continues". At the bottom of the artwork is the Empire Strikes Back logo, in black, and the section below the art is the cast and credits area sitting on a the blue background. The 20th Century Fox symbol and PG ratings box are found in the lower portion of this vertical poster. This is the poster that replaced the style "A" version, reportedly because Lando (B. Williams) was left out of the first artwork rendering, however, in reality this one-sheet was already scheduled to replace the "Romance Themed" style "A" with a more action packed illustration two weeks into the release of the film. (Tag style info NSS - Litho In U.S.A / Gau Union bug / Property disclaimer license / Style B / #800001 Empire Strikes Back) Interesting Note* - All copies of the National Screen Service version of this one-sheet have the 1 and K cropped off of the tag info in the lower right hand corner.

Variations*: Two version printings of this poster exist - a NSS version and the purple varient Studio version. Poster has been reprinted in different sizes.
