Oahu Pearl Harbor Experience

ImageYour day starts in the Pacific Historic Parks Visitor Center at the historic Pearl Harbor, which leads you to the USS Arizona Memorial for a time of reflection and remembrance. There you will learn of the “date which will live in infamy,” as proclaimed by US President Roosevelt, referring to the surprise military strike conducted by the Imperial Japanese Navy on December 7, 1941. Learn about the history and devastation of the tragic day, as within the grounds of Pearl Harbor there are a number of exhibits, displays, memorials, and museums, honoring not only the 1,177 victims of the Japanese attacks, but all of those who bravely served in the US during World War II.

In a moving balance of life and death, you may spot Hono green sea turtles and colorful fish swimming in the active reef around the USS Arizona, even as it serves to memorialize those entombed below.

STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (1980) Advance U.S. one-sheet regular 27×41 with NSS coding

ImageImageImageImageSTAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (1980) original issued folded Advance U.S. one-sheet regular 27×41 with NSS coding; 1980 poster numbered 800001; Vintage unrestored movie poster autographed by David Prowse, who played the role of ‘Darth Vader’ in the film.

This poster features original artwork created for the films first-run to the theatre from its U.S. release on May 21, 1980. This is guaranteed to be an original movie poster issued by the studio and meant for theatrical display. In addition, the poster is autographed by David Prowse, who played the role of ‘Darth Vader’ in the film (though James Earl Jones voiced the character). Prowse spoke the dialogue during the making of the film and didn’t actually know Vader was Luke’s father until he saw Empire in the theatre, which he considers to be his favourite of the original trilogy. In the script, Darth Vader’s famous revelation read, “Obi-Wan killed your father.” Only Irvin Kershner (film’s director), Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Lucas knew what the real overdubbed dialogue would be.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, later released as Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, is a 1980 American epic space opera film. It is the second film to be released in the Star Wars series and the fifth in terms of internal chronology of the storyline. Like its predecessor, Empire draws from several mythological stories and world religions. It also includes elements of 1930s film serials such as Flash Gordon, a childhood favorite of Lucas’, that similarly featured a city afloat in the sky (i.e., Cloud City). George Lucas’ 1977 Star Wars exceeded all expectations in terms of profit, its revolutionary effect on the film industry, and its unexpected resonance as a cultural phenomenon. Lucas hoped to become independent from the Hollywood film industry by financing Empire himself with $33 million from loans and the previous film’s earnings, going against the principles of many Hollywood producers never to invest one’s own money. Now fully in command of his Star Wars enterprise, Lucas offered the role to director to Irvin Kershner, one of his former professors at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Lawrence Kasdan, who Lucas was impressed from his script draft for Raiders of the Lost Ark was hired as writer after Leigh Brackett died of cancer after finishing her first draft of Empire in February 1978. After the various increases in budget, Empire became one of the most expensive films of its day and after the bank threatened to pull his loan, Lucas was forced to approach Alan Ladd Jr., then president of 20th Century Fox. Lucas and Ladd made a deal to secure the loan in exchange for paying the studio more money but without the loss of his sequel and merchandising rights. A deal the studio later squawked about, which pressured Ladd to quit. The departure of his longtime ally caused Lucas to take Raiders to Paramount Pictures. The Empire Strikes Back became the highest-grossing film of 1980. The film received mixed reviews from critics upon its initial release. However, fans and critics alike have widely come to consider Empire to be the franchise’s best film and one of the greatest films ever made.

The poster measures 27×41 inches and printed single-sided issued folded. All original theatre release issued Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back one-sheets posters will measure 27×41. This vintage unrestored poster is in near mint plus – Never Used condition.

No tears, tape, pin holes, stains, yellowing or color fading. Further pictures are available upon request.

STAR WARS: REVENGE OF THE JEDI (1983) Recalled Advance one-sheet version with date

STAR WARS: REVENGE OF THE JEDI (1983) Recalled Advance one-sheet version with date; An original vintage unrestored movie poster with “Coming May 25, 1983 to your galaxy.” ‘date version’ with poster art by Drew Struzan.

 A genuine original issued rolled U.S. Teaser Advance one-sheet 27×41 (exact measurements 27 1/8” x 41 1/16”) with “Coming May 25, 1983 to your galaxy.” known as ‘date version;’ STAR WARS: REVENGE OF THE JEDI (1983) vintage unrestored movie poster.

There are two original versions of the Revenge of the Jedi Teaser Advance one-sheet printed in 1982. The first version with ‘No Date’ was printed only once, issued by the studio, and meant for theatrical display (issued exclusively to movie theatres). The first printing was issued prior to a release date announced by 20th Century Fox. Once a release date was announced, a second version of the poster with the date printed near the bottom of the poster: “Coming May 25, 1983 to your galaxy.” was issued. In December 1982, Lucas decided that Revenge was not appropriate and returned to his original title, Return of the Jedi. (It was suggestion from writer Lawrence Kasdan that the original title was ‘weak’ so Lucas decided to use Revenge.) By the time of the title change, there were thousands of Revenge teaser posters that had been printed and distributed. (Note that the poster reverses the correct color of the light sabers; Luke is seen wielding a red lightsaber while Vader wields a blue one.) The poster was recalled and pulled from the films advertising campaign. The remaining stock of 6,800 posters were sold to collectors through the Star Wars Fan Club. The 2005 prequel trilogy film Revenge of the Sith later alluded to the dismissed title of Revenge of the Jedi.

The Revenge of the Jedi Teaser Advance one-sheet, along with the Star Wars Style ‘A’ one-sheet are the most commemorated and counterfeited movie posters in history. Bootleg of these posters exist and can be differentiated. One of the first bootleg versions were copied from a folded poster, so the fold line are evident. Other bootlegs are undersized. Another version has a lighter area on the black background found in the far bottom right corner of the poster. All bootlegs are on a different paper stock and colors and sharpness are dull compared to an original print. This print is a genuine original unused theatre issued Teaser Advance one-sheet.

This poster features original artwork created for the films first-run to the theatre from its U.S. release on May 25, 1983. This is guaranteed to be an original movie poster issued by the studio and meant for theatrical display. The poster art is designed by the popular American artist Drew Struzan. Struzan is known for his more than 150 posters, which include all the films of the Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Rambo, and Star Wars filmseries.

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, later released as Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, is a 1983 American epic space opera film. It is the third film to be released in the Star Wars series and the sixth in terms of internal chronology of the storyline. The film is set approximately one year after where The Empire Strikes Back storyline ends. The film received mostly positive reviews when it was released and was one of the years highest-grossing films of 1983.

The poster measures 27×41 inches (exact measurements 27 1/8” x 41 1/16”) and printed single-sided issued rolled. The poster was issued rolled and folded. This vintage unrestored poster has minor side border wear/wrinkles only near bottom right side of poster and is in excellent to near mint – Never Used condition.

STAR WARS (1977) Style ‘A’ original U.S. one-sheet movie poster, numbered 77/21 with ‘STAR WARS’ written under NSS coding in funky typeset; The vintage unrestored movie poster is autographed by Carrie Fisher, who portrays the character ‘Princess Leia’ in the film.

There were at least four different original printings of Style ‘A’ one-sheet regular. As this poster contains the lettering ‘STAR WARS’ written under the NSS coding in funky typeset including ONE SHEET – STYLE “A” spelled-out across the bottom border on the poster, movie poster historians have labeled this printing as ‘version 2.’ However, it is believed by some that this may be the first printing, although it cannot be proven. This version has No known bootlegs. In addition, the poster is autographed by Carrie Fisher, who portrays the character ‘Princess Leia’ in the Star Wars film.

This poster features original artwork created for the films first-run to the theatre from its U.S. release on May 25, 1977. This is guaranteed to be an original movie poster issued by the studio and meant for theatrical display. The poster art is designed by Thomas Jung, an American advertising art director, graphic designer and illustrator. One of Jung’s early assignments was on the one-sheet theatrical poster for the 1959 movie Plan 9 from Outer Space, dubbed by many as the ‘worst movie ever made.’ Since Jung would go on, to design and illustrate the one-sheet “style A” theatrical poster for one of the most widely acclaimed films ever made, Star Wars, he carries the unusual distinction of having worked on perhaps the worst and best movies made during the last fifty years. Some of Jung’s other illustration work includes movie poster art designs for: Doctor Zhivago, The Omen, The Lord of the Rings (1978 Style ‘B’ Version), and Raging Bull.

Star Wars, later retitled Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, is a 1977 American epic space opera film written and directed by George Lucas. It is the first installment in the Star Wars series. Lucas began writing the script after completing his previous film American Graffiti and based the plot outline on Akira Kurosawa’s The Hidden Fortress. Filming began on March 22, 1976, and shot in various locations in Tunisia, England and Guatemala. Lucas has often stated that the entire original trilogy was, in essence, intended as one film. However, he said that his story material for Star Wars was too long for one film, so he opted to split the story into multiple films. The film garnered ten Academy Award nominations, winning six; the nominations included Best Supporting Actor for Alec Guinness and Best Picture. The film is often ranked as one of the best films of all time. Star Wars has since been preserved into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in its first year of opening (being the most recent one to do so at the time).

The poster measures 27×41 inches and printed single-sided issued folded. Generally, posters at this time were issued folded, although rolled ones do exist but are quite rare. All original theatre release issued Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back one-sheets posters will measure 27×41. This vintage unrestored poster is in near mint – Never Used condition.

No tears, tape, pin holes, stains, yellowing or color fading. Further pictures are available upon request.
