Other Info: Printed by Galaxie Ltd. (Boston, Mass.) this poster contains ten iconic scenes from the original film cropped together into a montage. It includes - (Stormtrooper on a Dewback, Tie-fighter vs X-wing duel, Jawa getting ready to fire at R2-D2, Han and Chewie firing at incoming Stormtroopers at Docking Bay 94, Chewie and C-3PO playing Dejarik, etc.) At the bottom on a black background is the Star Wars logo in outlined white. There is also a white border that frames the poster. Interesting Note* - After researching the origins of this poster, we are still not sure the of the exact purpose of it's printing, because the Galaxie Ltd. (Boston, Mass.) company doesn't appear to be in business anymore and I can't find any records in the archives. Poster could have simply been a commercially available collectible to be purchased in New England or, I wonder if it was a cross promotional poster handed out by the Ford Motor Company at one of their 1977 / '78 auto shows. The Ford Galaxie is a full-sized car that was built in the United States of America by Ford for model years 1959 through to 1974, and the name, in a marketing attempt was to appeal to the excitement surrounding the Space Race. After '74 the Galaxie was slowly phased out and de-emphasized by Ford Motor Co. in an effort to push the posher LTD as a mainstream full size car which was in production until '86. So it could have been a movie tie-in. If you have more info about the poster drop us an e-mail. (See pic below)
