A signed, framed, storyboard copy used in the production of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. This page features two illustrations of the Millennium Falcon passing Darth Vader's Star Destroyer. The top frame depicts the Falcon moving in from the right with the Star Destroyer to its left. The lower frame depicts three Imperial TIE Fighters travelling toward the front of the picture in pursuit of the Falcon. The storyboard is signed by Dave Prowse who played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, and features an official stamp from visual effects supervisor Brian Johnson, who would go on to win an Oscar for his contribution to the film. The stamp reads, “BRIAN JOHNSON - SPECIAL/VISUAL FX – ELSTREE STUDIOS/ILM SAN RAFAEL”.
The production used copy has a printed description beneath the illustration reading, “EXT. SPACE. Falcon and 3 Ties bank in from side and skim the surface of Vader’s ship. Lasers & flak.” It is scene numbered ‘V431C’, shot numbered ‘CE13’ and is page number ‘416’. Printed on dark yellow US Legal-sized paper, the page is hole-punched at the top, indicating that it would have been held together in sequence with the rest of the storyboard pages. It comes framed in a custom built display with laser-cut mount board etched with the iconic movie title.
