Other Info: This is an extremely rare and unique dual-sided test proof printing of the Return of the Jedi style "B" international one-sheet. Gore Graphics, Inc. created several variations of these posters while testing different designs. This particular proof has the international version credit information with the PG Ratings box omitted. They were also printed on a glossy stock paper, making the artwork much more vivid. These "Jedi" posters were then printed on the reverse side of some previously used paper stock. This one had the planned '83 re-release illustration of Hercules in New York, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger on the back side. Only a handful of these are known to exist. Making them even rarer than the reverse side "Android" proofs and the Return of the Jedi 3/6/24-Sheet proof backside versions. (See pic below) Interesting Note* - Although the re-release of "Hercules in New York" never happened, another film in 1983 titled "Hercules" did get released starring Lou Ferrigno.
