“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.”
Based upon the original 1964 poster design of Robert Brownjohn (why change such a beautiful poster ?) with a few minor alterations on the wording this is perhaps the most famous and recognisable James Bond poster ever produced. Printed in extremely limited numbers it is probably rarer than a 1964 original, but a lot more affordable. This version was created by the highly respected independent distributors Park Circus for their 2007 restored and remastered re-release for 007’s third screen outing “Goldfinger”. Originally rolled (as issued) this totally unrestored example looks magnificent and displays very well with minimal handling wear. A rare and highly desirable piece of country of origin, British James Bond cinematic memorabilia.
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.
