Trivia: This film, as was common with similar newsreel-style documentaries of the period, contains no live sound whatsoever. Everything you hear consists of sound effects added in post-production, from crowd noise and traffic to every kick of the ball. Occasionally when someone on screen can be seen to shout something, gibberish approximating the mouth movements has been dubbed over.…more detail
“Agents, Villains and The Babes”
Commissioned in 1998 as one of a series of poster designs intended to promote the James Bond Exhibition held at the Roemer – Und Pelizaeus – Museum, Hildesheim Germany. Titled “Agents, Villains and The Babes” the stunning 007 artwork by regular Bond poster artist Robert McGinnis, features a highly detailed all-action montage from Bond’s previous adventures. However the border artwork is made up of beautiful, largely naked or scantily clad women which after consultation with the Museum Board was considered too risqué to use in publicising the Exhibition so only a small number of the initial print run were all that was printed. The example offered here is from this first print run and should not be confused with the later Limited Edition lithograph issued by McGinnis himself which has the censored artwork which was also used for the cover of the Sunday Times November 7th 1999 edition (photo for reference). Originally flat and unfolded (as issued) this amazing example displays and presents to excellent effect. Guaranteed original this represents a highly desirable piece of original James Bond memorabilia with impressive unmistakably Robert McGinnis 007 artwork.

Originally rolled (as issued) this stunning example displays and presents to excellent effect and was likely unused. Guaranteed original this represents a highly desirable piece of original James Bond memorabilia with impressive unmistakably Bond, Sean Connery artwork.
