“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.

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.…more detail
“You see the gear lever here ? Now, if you take the top off, you will find a little red button. Whatever you do, don’t touch it. You’ll release this section of the roof, and engage and then fire the passenger ejector seat.”
007’s third screen outing “Goldfinger” in 1964 saw the template introduced for all future James Bond movies with a spectacular set-piece finale at Fort Knox Gold Depository, Kentucky with Bond (Connery) not only having to fight off the titular ‘Goldfinger’ and his henchman ‘Oddjob’ but also defuse a nuclear bomb; all in a days work for a 00 Agent. A striking mixture of artwork and photo montage for this Japanese B2 features a great image of Connery as Bond at the centre of the action with a design that is exclusive to the first release in Japan and not found anywhere else. Presented in excellent unrestored rolled (as issued) condition this presents superbly with minimal handling wear and represents a fantastic piece of collectable James Bond cinematic memorabilia from the Sean Connery era.
Trivia: First appearance of a laser beam in a movie. In the original script, the scene had a spinning buzzsaw (as in the novel) until it was decided that such an image had become commonplace and unoriginal.

Pierce Brosnan’s second and highly succesful Bond film “Tomorrow Never Dies”. This original 1997 country of origin UK Quad is quite excetional featuring the photographic talents of Keith Hamshere and George Whitear with design by art director Randi Braun…This is the very rare recalled version, although you would be hard pushed to see the difference between this version & the final release. Give up ? It’s Pierce’s stubble. The Producer’s felt that this semi unshaven look was not for their new re-inventing of the Bond franchise & ‘TOMMORROW’ is misspelt along the bottom border credits. Originally rolled (as issued) this scarce poster displays and presents to to very good effect and represents a fine example of collectible James Bond movie memorabilia.…more detail
