Star Wars scanned from a slide in the Kurtz/Joiner archive for EmpireCon
LA.

Los
Angeles, CA, September 12th, 2019 -Today, September 12th, Empirecon LA is
releasing a never before seen image that’s been scanned from the private film
collection of the late Gary Kurtz (producer on Star Wars & The Empire
Strikes Back). Standing defiantly against his adversary, Dave Prowse (Darth
Vader) faces an advancing Sir Alec Guiness (Obi-Wan Kenobi) while wielding
stand-in lances for their iconic lightsaber showdown in the very first Star Wars
film.

This
photo showcases the exclusive nature and rarity of the images photographed by
producer Gary Kurtz during the production of the original Star Wars trilogy
which has not yet seen the light of day. Gary always had at least a couple of
cameras around his neck, one B&W, and one color. Many of these photos have
never been revealed to the public.

This
image is one of many that will be on display at a special exhibit at EmpireCon’s
inaugural year, to be held at the Marriott LAX this December 6 –
8th.

Other
special exhibits will source from the Kurtz/Joiner Archive, the private
collection of Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Kenny Baker to create a truly unique
experience of rare and previously unreleased materials for guests to enjoy. The
official Memorial of Peter Mayhew as announced by Peter’s family on his passing
will be held at the convention. There will also be rare autograph signers,
vendors, cosplay, crafting, charity auction, photo ops, trivia contest, themed
parties, and more.

EmpireCon
LA will be releasing the image on their facebook page today 9/12/19 at 4:45 pm
PST. https://www.facebook.com/EmpireConLA/
