    The year is 1969, Sean Connery has stepped down from the role of 007 so it is left to Peter Hunt to find an actor to fill Mr Connery's vacant shoes and that he did going for an almost unknown Australian actor, George Lazenby. James Bond is Back!..Back "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". Frank McCarthy was commissioned for the "Far Up!, Far Out!, Far More!" campaign creating a stunning image of a snowscape, lots of action & a shirtless Mr Lazenby with a Walther LP53 in one hand and Diana Rigg as Tracy in the other. The likeness Mr McCarthy created of Mr Lazenby was exceptional however it was decided to change the appearance of the two central characters and that was left to Robert McGinnis who painted a more traditional James Bond in tux on skies!
    The image created by the two artists was utilised worldwide including Japan who usually went in a completely different direction. This is the US insert poster.

    Earlier in the year after much searching I secured an original 1953 first edition copy of Casino Royale, so why is this in a poster art thread I hear you cry?
    Simply this, the classic "Bleeding Heart" cover artwork was designed by Bond's creator, Ian Fleming himself.
    Now with vintage Bond posters sometimes restoration is required. This can be a simple matter of a clean followed by paper or linen backing or a new gell preservation process or a major restoration where missing paper & artwork is missing which needs to be reinstated which can be expensive as you are usually paying by the hour.

    Most but not all copies of Casino Royale which come to market have had minor dust jacket restoration. This is inevitable because 62 year old paper has been handled without archival white gloves & without any due care or attention. Most books when you think about it are mainly handled or are rested while reading on the spine therefore it is hardly surprising that over 62 years this is the main area where grime and damage occurs and cleaning 62 year old paper is something which needs to be carried out by an industry certified restorer much as major poster restoration needs to be carried out by a similar professional. As some may have seen with my Dr No British Quad and Corgi C261 Bond DB5 advertising poster the before and after restoration images can be quite dramatic. This is also the case with the Casino Royale dust wrapper which has had a sympathetic restoration as it is possible to over clean an item making it look well fake! Thankfully Mr Richard Reeve got the balance just right -{

    And now for something completely different!....
    Printed by the Benton Card Company in 1962 as a cheaper alternative for US Movie Theatre owners to the window cards supplied by National Screen services featuring an alternative version to the Mitchell Hooks art seen on the main campaign artwork. The card made a politically incorrect today feature of actor John Kitzmiller with Honey Ryder receiving Jamaican Nature Girl billing.
    Benton cards can be a bit of a minefield for collectors as they were rereleased in the 1970s & were clearly marked as not being original 62 issue however it is believed that a third printing took place where the cards were printed as they first appeared back in 1962. It is believed that these cards were printed on a different stock? -{

    I figure this thread might be the correct one to ask in...

    I'm a movie poster collector and like to get them signed. Have spent the past few days trying to get a OHMSS original poster for around the 100 AUD mark which would be the most I've ever paid for an original poster. Have had to settle with an "official reprint" because of the crazy prices on them.

    The cheapest price I saw was 110 USD (150 AUD) and it had tears and thumb tacks in it. Hardly a piece for the wall and I imagine it'll be sitting on eBay for awhile. The least expensive "presentable" one I saw was 140 USD and that wasn't an English poster. The cheapest poster in English was an Australian version of the poster that was selling for 185 USD. Out of curiosity I searched the other Bond film posters and apart from Dr. No most of the original movie posters from those films were a lot cheaper (Under the 100 USD mark generally)

    So why is OHMSS so expensive? Is it because it's considered one of the better films? Is there generally less of them around? Is it because of Lazenby? What's the deal?

    For those that collect lobby cards, does anyone have any neat presentation ideas or at the very least reliable frames that are nice but cost effective? I've found a few nice 11x14 frames but they tend to for some reason not quite for a standard lobby card.

    In this Thunderball's 50th Anniversary year I thought it may be worth remembering the non McGinnis & McCarthy campaign art, in particular the Japanese art.
    The international McGinnis and McCarthy campaign art was & is something special however the Japanese did it slightly differently nicking elements from the main campaign art as they did for the You Only Live Twice campaign. For Thunderball those results were quite striking seen here in the two main B2 posters -{

    An incredibly rare original 1969 UK Rank Cinemas poster for On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

    Measuring just 25cm x 20cm, this is the only example this collector has seen outside of the example illustrated on page 244 of Charles Helfenstein's excellent The Making of On Her Majesty's Secret Service -{

    1969 and something a little different from Japan measuring 727mm x 540mm and printed on card stock. Illustrated in the main Bond movie poster books and page 231 of Charles Helfenstein's excellent The Making of On Her Majesty's Secret Service, this is the only example this collector has seen in the flesh -{
