From the Heritage Press Release:More than 50 lots of some of the rarest posters from the original Star Wars movie and its first two sequels are being offered at Heritage Auctions’ July 25 and 26 Vintage Movie Posters Signature® Auction.
The posters, originally released between 1977 and 1982, are among more than 1,300 lots of some of the rarest and most desirable vintage movie posters to come to auction, according to Grey Smith, Heritage’s Director of Movie Posters. They originate in the collection of the late John Williams (not to be confused with the composer of the same name), who passed away earlier this year.
“This once-in-a-lifetime selection includes the rare nylon banner produced for Star Wars’ initial release,” Smith said, “along with an autographed poster produced for the Star Wars concert series with artwork by John Alvin and signed by George Lucas as well as the scarce Howard Chaykin promotional poster autographed by the artist.”
The auction includes nearly all poster styles used at U.S. theaters for Lucas’ original three films, plus many used for worldwide distribution, including rare Russian, Polish, Japanese, French, British and German posters.
