Original US One sheet Movie Poster 27″ x 41″ folded as issued, very good – fine condition.
Artist: Robert McGinnis & Frank McCarthy
Note that there are THREE variations of this “look up! look down! look out!” style of one-sheet that are all original to 1965! There are two that look identical except for the reversal of the producer credits (this was done on almost all Bond movies, so that Broccoli and Saltzman could each come first in “half” the world!). But the third variation has completely different placement of the NSS information at the bottom, PLUS slightly different art. For instance, the top of Connery’s tank at the top center of the poster has been cropped so that it doesn’t extend past the border, the artwork in the middle section is cropped differently, and on the bottom panel, the blonde’s leg (which extended past the brunette) has been removed.All three of these posters are original to 1965, and as far as we know, collectors value them equally! We have no idea why this extra variation was created, but we do know that, when the movie was re-released in the early 1980s (perhaps 1980), the “cropped tank” variation artwork was used for that one-sheet. The poster offered here is definitely the 1965 one-sheet with the “cropped tank”!
