“Mr Bond. I’m so glad I caught you. Your office called. They’re sending a helicopter to pick you up. Some sort of emergency…It usually is. Thank you”
A rare find in true investment grade condition for Roger Moore’s fifth outing as Agent 007. After the excesses of the previous movie “Moonraker” this is more of return to a realistic spy thriller in John Glen’s “For Your Eyes Only”. This is a country of origin film poster from first year of release 1981 featuring stunning artwork that incorporates the “legs” aspect of Bill Gold’s design and Brian Bysouth’s beautifully detailed finished all-action artwork. The original 1981 British UK quad movie poster offered here is presented in exceptional unrestored, rolled (as issued) unfolded condition and perfectly suited to the landscape style for which it was designed for. Colours are bright and unfaded, the black background a deep black and the white areas truly bright. This example is easily the best I have had the pleasure to have ever offered for sale. Hugely desirable and very collectable, it would be a worthy addition to any collection of James Bond movie memorabilia and is a truly impressive 007 poster.
Trivia: after much debate the infamous “legs” belong to New York model Joyce Bartle.…more detail
