This lot comes from the collection of Charles "Charley" Lippincott. Lippincott is considered among the foremost marketing and merchandising experts in the history of science-fiction. After an early start in traditional Hollywood publicity, his career exploded when college friend George Lucas hired him as Lucasfilm's VP of Advertising, Publicity, Promotion & Merchandising, a role he used to create arguably the most successful - and bombastic - marketing campaign ever for Lucas' original Star Wars trilogy. Lippincott subsequently masterminded the publicity strategies for such era-defining properties as Ridley Scott's Alien and Mike Hodges' Flash Gordon, both of which are represented in this auction. The popularity of these projects further propelled him into the top ranks of film executives, leading him to produce Danny Cannon's cult classic Judge Dredd, which is also heavily featured in this catalog. While Charley Lippincott passed away in 2020, his personal collection reflects a legacy of rare influence and lifelong fandom.
