Other Info: Framed with a thin blue line in the outer white border, this poster is the one moviegoers would have seen at the initial release of the film. It has the famous tagline - "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." and the white outlined Star Wars logo on the dark blue background below. It also contains the 20th Century Fox and Dolby symbols, along with the PG ratings box. (Tag style info - Copyright ©1977 Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation / GAU Union bug / Printed In U.S.A. / Property disclaimer license / One Sheet - Teaser "B" Star Wars 77/21-0) Interesting Note* - This is the poster you would have seen during the initial opening run of Star Wars in May '77, because the Thomas Jung style "A" one-sheet, didn't appear at theaters until late June on into July.

Bootlegs*: There are bootlegs of this poster. Most common one - a version printed without the GAU Union label (Graphic Arts International Union) and the blue background color is slightly off, with some smearing of the white lettering. Note* - there are some advance posters that do not have a Union label that are in fact originals (unreleased proof of concept versions without NSS details at the bottom), however, most found in public are not legitimate. This one-sheet along with the Star Wars style "A" and "C", plus the Revenge of the Jedi Advance Teaser dated versions are the most commonly bootlegged "Star Wars" posters. These four Star Wars posters were all bootlegged in the mid / late 80's.
