    James Bond: From Russia With Love


    “To those unlucky few who missed “DR. NO”…You are unprepared for the sophisticated mayhem and the polished lovemaking. The James Bond bug has not bitten you. But take heart! There is still time to jump on the Bond bandwagon with the second James Bond adventure…FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE. See it and we guarantee – you will be hooked for good !”

    One for the true Bond collectors and those who appreciate movie posters as an art form. An original Italian locandina film poster design for 007’s second screen outing “From Russia With Love”. The artwork of Eric Pulford and Renato Fratini was adapted for this 1970s Italian re-release with Pulford’s now classic Sean Connery, Bond pose showing how well it has aged. Connery (as Bond) is surrounded by key female characters and action scenes from the movie including a beautiful illustration of actress Daniela Bianchi (Tatiana Romanova). With minimal handling wear this unrestored originally folded (as issued) example presents to very good effect and looks quite stunning, with vibrant bright unfaded colours and crisp white paper. It doesn’t get much better than this and represents an eye-catching piece of James Bond memorabilia.

    Trivia: Although he had his reservations about the choice of Sir Sean Connery for the part of James Bond, after seeing him in this movie, Ian Fleming was completely won over by the actor. In fact, as a result, Fleming added a Scottish ancestry to Bond’s character in later novels.

    James Bond: Moonraker


    “Outer space now belongs to James Bond 007”

    At the time of its release in 1979 this “Star Wars” inspired Bond movie (“For Your Eyes Only” was originally slated to be released after “The Spy Who Loved Me”, but the huge success of  “Star Wars” called for a rethink) was the largest grossing 007 movie to date. Beautiful detailed Daniel Gouzee artwork was the highlight of the worldwide “Moonraker” campaign and this original 1979 Japanese B2 film poster really does look impressive. The Japanese text certainly adds an air of sophistication and coolness to the design. Featuring a suave Roger Moore in a shiny silver space suit; a rarity on any Bond poster campaign as he was normally illustrated wearing a ‘trademark’ black tuxedo…Presented in a high grade, rolled (as issued) condition this unrestored example displays and presents to excellent effect with  colours that are bright and unfaded. Hugely desirable and very collectable, it would be a worthy addition to any collection of James Bond movie memorabilia and is an impressive 007 film poster from the Roger Moore run in the series.

    Trivia: Producer Albert R. Broccoli complained that Maurice Binder‘s title sequence cost more than the entire budget of Dr. No (1962).

    “The world’s greatest villains have tried to kill James Bond…Now it’s Scaramanga’s turn to try !”

Stunning Far East location work in this effort includes Kowloon, Hong Kong, Macau, Thailand and throw in a bit of martial arts (popular due to the huge success of “Enter The Dragon”) then you have not just your typical action-packed Bond spectacle but also an incredible series of Bond images. Originally flat and unfolded (as issued) these lobby cards display and present to superb effect. No pinholes, tears, rips or paper loss, just the very minimal of handling wear, this beautiful set represents a fantastic item of highly desirable 007 movie memorabilia.

    Trivia: Travelling to Los Angeles for the Johnny Carson show to promote the film, Sir Christopher Lee had his golden gun confiscated by U.S. Customs.
