Mark Hamill features on the cover of Bravo of 12 February 1981. That week 36 years ago Germany’s youth read about:

• The story of Queen
• Styx on their US tour
• What to expect from Judas Priest’s German tour
• Nastassja Kinski’s new short hair
• Gossip from John Lennon’s bodyguard (“Yoko had John bewitched”)
• Sascha Hehn, star of Das Traumschiff, Germany’s TV answer to The Love Boat.
• Barbra Streisand’s career in photos
• A Bravo reader’s trip to the US to present Leif Garret with the readers’ poll trophy

Mark Hamill 1980

80-12-17 Mark Hammill SP

For this week we’ll cover posters from Bravo issues that were current on Christmas Day in that week.

Here’s actor Mark Hamil on a poster from Bravo of 17 December 1980. The Star Wars movie The Empire Strikes Back (featured here) was a big thing at the time. I gather there is a new Star Wars movie out in which it is revealed that Darth Vader is not Luke’s father after all.
