Om This Date In Star Wars History: January 23, 1939

Bespin refugee - January 23, 2019
January 23, 1939, artists Greg and Tim Hilderbrandt (1939 - 2006) are born.

"In 1977 the brothers were approached by 20th Century Fox to produce poster art for the British release of Star Wars. A promotional poster had already been produced in US by the artist Tom Jung, but Fox executives considered this poster "too dark". The twins had to work to a very tight deadline, and worked together in shifts to produce a finished product in 36 hours. Their version of the poster, referred to as Style B, was distributed to be used on British cinema billboards for the UK release, and became possibly their best known work."
