Other Info: This poster was Larry Noble's submitted illustration to Lucasfilm Ltd.'s marketing chief Sidney Ganis for consideration to be the theatrical poster for the Empire Strikes Back. Although it wasn't selected, it was later used for the tenth anniversary one-sheet produced by Kilian Enterprises. This Empire Strikes Back concept art is signed by Larry Noble (there are copies without his signature, however, it appears that every time he did sign a copy he put the actual date by his signature - hence a lot of copies have different handwritten dates on them in the early to mid-80's) and has Noble listed as illustrator with personal logo, represented by John Steinberg, and Sidney Ganis - Art Director at the bottom.
