  • James Bond: Diamonds Are Forever Movie Poster

    James Bond: Diamonds Are Forever


    “The satellite is at present over… Kansas. Well, if we destroy Kansas the world may not hear about it for years. Perhaps New York, with all that smut and traffic… might give them a chance for a fresh start. Washington, DC. Perfect. Since we have not heard from them, they will hear from us.”

    Loosely based on Ian Fleming’s fourth Bond novel, but featuring returning Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, “Diamonds Are Forever” was Sean Connery’s last official outing as Ian Fleming’s super agent, where he gets to romp around Amsterdam & Las Vegas. Stunning mixture of Robert McGinnis artwork and photo montage for this Japanese B2 from 1971 with a great image of Connery as Bond at the centre of the action. Presented in excellent unrestored original flat/unfolded rolled condition this presents superbly and represents a fantastic piece of collectable James Bond cinematic memorabilia from the Sean Connery era.

    Trivia: Reportedly, the final scene Sir Sean Connery filmed as Bond (at least in the official film franchise) was the one in which an unconscious Bond is loaded into a coffin at the funeral home. So, Connery’s last day of playing James Bond for EON Productions was Friday, August 13, 1971.
