    James Bond: The Spy Who Loved Me

    £295.00

    “…maybe I misjudged Stromberg. Any man who drinks Dom Perignon ’52 can’t be all bad.”

    A magnificent alternative movie poster for Lewis Gilbert’s 1977 James Bond extravaganza…“The Spy Who Loved Me”…Cubby Broccoli wanted this to be “BIGGEST Bond of All” and it certainly lived up to the billing, utilising the massive purpose built 007 soundstage at Pinewood Studios, still very much in use today. The action-packed artwork by artist Alfons Kiefer features all the classic imagery you’d expect to see in a Bond film, 007 dressed in a tuxedo, exotic location, gadgets, psychotic villains and beautiful, glamorous women – Barbara Bach who played the Russian super spy Anya Amasova (Agent XXX) and Caroline Munro (the helicopter pilot Naomi). This thirteen-colour screenprint is presented on Fedrigoni Materica Gesso paper and is hand-numbered #34/85. This amazing limited edition art print represents a fine piece of very collectable James Bond movie memorabilia.

    Trivia: The closing credits say, “James Bond will return in For Your Eyes Only (1981)” but, because of the successes of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977) and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977),  the space set Moonraker (1979) was chosen.

  • Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope - Alternative Movie Poster

    Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope

    £295.00

    “Any attack made by the Rebels against this station would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they have obtained. This station is now the ultimate power in the universe!”

    An officially licensed, sold out “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope” alternative movie poster released in 2022 through Bottleneck Gallery in conjunction with Acme Archives and a part of Bottleneck Gallery’s 10-Year Anniversary and Party. Titled “Trench Run”, artist Jason Raish created an exciting print featuring the iconic X-Wing fighter battling the equally iconic TIE fighters in the climatic Death Star trench chase sequence. Using to glow in the dark, fluorescent inks, the neon green lasers are particularly striking. This edition is hand-numbered #251/350. Scarce and highly sought after, Raish’s imagery is already firmly established as a fans favourite, and this fantastic, visually exciting art print represents a fine addition for any collector of  movie posters or Star Wars fan memorabilia.

    Trivia: The word “Jedi” is derived from the Japanese words “Jidai Geki,” which translate as “period adventure drama.” A period adventure drama is a Japanese television soap opera program set in the samurai days. George Lucas mentioned in an interview that he saw a “Jidai Geki” program on television while in Japan a year or so before the movie was made, and he liked the word.

    £60.00

    “In life he was a movie star, in death he became a legend”…Rare and original UK Quad quad film poster for Ken Russell’s 1977 biopic of the silent screen heart-throb Rudolph Valentino…”Valentino”. Controversial director Ken Russell chose the ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev to star in what turned out to be a lavish but under-rated production…This originally folded example looks superb with deep rich colours and detailling, focusing on the two stars (Nureyev & Leslie Caron).
