USA Empire Strikes Back Style "A" One-Sheet

Other Info: Poster contains the famous "Gone with the Wind" style artwork by Roger Kastel. This one-sheet has the tagline at the top and it says, "The Star Wars Saga Continues". In the middle lower third of the illustration is the Empire Strikes Back logo, in all white, and the section below the art is the cast and credits area sitting on the icy Hoth blue background. The 20th Century Fox symbol and PG ratings box are found in the lower portion of this vertical poster. Poster was replaced rather quickly by the Empire Strikes Back style "B" version, because 20th Century Fox wanted to replace the "love themed" aspect with the "darker action theme" to keep the advertisement campaign fresh. This also helped to add other characters from film (eg. Lando Calrissian) that had been missing from the initial advertisements.
