“Roger M007re is James Bond”
An absolutely beautiful 1973 original country of origin UK quad movie poster for Roger Moore’s debut as Ian Fleming’s super-spy James Bond 007 in Guy Hamilton’s “Live And Let Die”…Robert McGinnis was commissioned to provide the artwork and (in my opinion) created one of the finest Bond posters ever. His detailed and stylish illustrations perfectly capture the voodoo theme of the movie, with the Tarot card display just amazing. Add to that the famous boat chase / jump sequence and you have a ‘perfect’ 007 poster. Incredibly hard to source; originally folded (as issued) this unrestored example presents and displays to excellent effect with pure white background and dazzling bright colours. A stunning item that represents a fine example of a scarce and extremely collectible James Bond vintage movie poster.
Trivia: The producers offered Clint Eastwood the role of James Bond, fresh from his success with Dirty Harry (1971). He was flattered, but declined, saying that Bond should be played by an English actor. Notably, Bond uses a Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum in this film, the gun made hugely popular by the Dirty Harry film franchise.…more detail
