Other Info: This silk-screened nylon banner, with grommets and yellow fringe, could be ordered from the National Screen Service by exhibitors. It contains the early outlined illustration images of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2, X-wings, and the tapered top pyramid Star Wars logo, centered in blue. (Designed by - typographer Dan Perri) The banner is quite rare because theater owners at the time opted out of spending extra money on this luxurious promotional item for this unheard-of science-fiction film's initial run. Interesting Note* - The films Jaws and Rocky, along with a few other movies during the late 70's time period, had similar silk-screened banners with the yellow fringe and grommets on top.
