Lot #18: Harrison Ford & Paul Blake Signed 20'' x 16'' Photo From ''Star Wars'' -- One of the Most Memorable Scenes From the Film, With Blake Writing His Famous Monologue


Fantastic 20'' x 16'' Star Wars photo signed and inscribed by both Harrison Ford and Paul Blake, who played the infamous bounty hunter Greedo assigned to kill Han Solo, but not before Solo would shoot him dead first. Both the original scene, and its alteration by George Lucas for the 1997 Special Edition release of the film, has inspired one of Star Wars' greatest controversies - the ''Who Shot First'' question of whether Greedo drew his gun first, causing Solo to act in self-defense (as portrayed in 1997), or Solo shot first without provocation by Greedo (in the original version). But the question seems almost moot with this inscription by Blake, with Greedo clearly telling Solo in advance that he would kill him: Inscription reads in full,

''Going somewhere Solo? You should have paid him when you had the chance. Jabba's put a price on your head so large that every bounty hunter in the galaxy will be looking for you. I'm lucky I found you first. Jabba's through with you. He has no time for smugglers who drop their shipments at the first sign of an Imperial cruiser. I've been looking forward to killing you for a long time. / Paul Blake Greedo Star Wars 1977'', with his additional signature ''Paul Blake'' in cursive. Signed by Harrison Ford in black felt-tip and by Blake in silver felt-tip. Satin-finish photo is in near fine condition. With Beckett COA for Ford's signature, and with an LOA from Blake.
