  • Enter The Dragon

    Enter The Dragon

    £195.00

    “His deadly mission: to crack the forbidden island of Han!”

    Sorry for the spoiler but the poster imagery featured here is from the climax of Lee’s most successful and well known movie “Enter the Dragon” and showcases an iconic image of martial arts’ greatest star…Bruce Lee. This striking black & white photographic poster (I genuinely don’t think it would have worked as well in colour) was issued by Warner Bros. to record stores to promote the soundtrack album that accompanied the film in 1973. Easily the best example of this poster I have offered for sale. This originally rolled (as issued) example is rarely seen in this high grade unrestored  investment condition and represents an extremely scarce and collectable example of  original movie related memorabilia & a fitting tribute to the martial arts legend BRUCE LEE.

    Trivia: Over 8,000 mirrors were used to set up the “Hall of Mirrors” where the climactic duel takes place.

  • Enter the Dragon Movie Poster

    Enter The Dragon

    £495.00

    “Their deadly mission: to crack the forbidden island of Han !”

    Rightly regarded as one of the key and most collectable movie posters for a film that created its own unique genre and provided the vehicle to launch Bruce Lee (albeit briefly) as a screen & cultural icon. Bob Peak created the artwork and his design was used globally as the imagery became as memorable as its late star. Whilst the core artwork remained the same slight variations appeared in different countries with this Japanese re-issue one-sheet format probably the most striking as the action imagery (including a nunchuk wielding Bruce Lee) was offset against a black background. Offered here is an exceptional Japanese B1 film poster for “Enter the Dragon” from the 1997 re-release, finished with a high gloss sheen it presents to stunning effect and displays minimal handling wear. This originally rolled (as issued) example is rarely seen in this large Japanese format and in such high grade unrestored investment grade condition. A striking piece that represents an extremely scarce and collectable example of original movie memorabilia & a fitting tribute to the martial arts legend BRUCE LEE.

    Trivia: In 2004, this movie was deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” in the United States and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress.

    Enter The Dragon

    £2,250.00

    “Their deadly mission: to crack the forbidden island of Han !”

    “Enter the Dragon” is rightly regarded as one of the key and most collectable movie posters from the 1970’s for a film that created it’s own unique genre and provided the vehicle to launch Bruce Lee (albeit briefly) as a screen & cultural icon. Bob Peak created the artwork and his design was used globally as the imagery became as memorable as its late star. Whilst the core artwork remained the same slight variations appeared in different countries with the UK landscape format probably the most striking as the action imagery (including a nun-chuk wielding Bruce Lee) was offset against a bright yellow background. Offered here is an exceptional UK quad film poster from first year of release 1973 that displays and presents to excellent effect – colours are very vibrant and truly pop from the paper. This originally folded (as issued) example is rarely seen in this high grade unrestored condition and represents an extremely scarce and collectable example of  original movie memorabilia & a fitting tribute to the martial arts legend BRUCE LEE.

    TRIVIA: ENTER THE DRAGON due to its huge popularity was consistently re-released and shown after its 1973 debut yet no new standalone posters were ever printed & it was down to the cinema owners to re-use the posters from 1973. Making original unrestored 1973 posters of this quality extremely scarce.

  • James Bond: The Bond girls Alternative Movie Poster

    James Bond: The Bond girls

    £425.00

    “”

    A signed and hand-numbered (#97/200) limited edition print created as a private commission in 2021 by Paul Mann paying tribute to James Bond’s beautiful ‘Bond Girls’ – Honey Rider (Ursula Andress), Tatiana Romanova (Daniela Bianchi), Pussy Galore Conor Blackman), Domino (Claudine Auger), Kissy (Mie Hama) and Tiffany Case (Jill St John) from Sean Connery’s movies. Mann had this to say on the project: “..a friend of mine commissioned me to produce an original James Bond painting with six of the Bond Girls next to Sean Connery. He wanted it very “Robert McGinnis” style so it was awesome to be able to branch out of my normal Bond movie poster composition and do something different with the characters.” This amazing limited edition art print represents a fine piece of very collectable James Bond movie memorabilia.

  • James Bond: The Spy Who Loved Me Alternative Movie Poster

    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.
