    An original 1963 release STB or Japanese 2 panel for From Russia With Love. A number of years ago I had the choice of either purchasing the original STB or the 1972 rerelease STB which I went for because of the stunning artwork. A case of heart over head. A decision I've always regretted because the one I passed on was immaculate & the one or two originals which have surfaced haven't been!
    I always felt with Japanese Bond posters, they, that is the Japanese always pushed the boat out with incredible unique designs where with FRWL they pretty much just took the standard B2 1 panel and stuck a green bit on the bottom!

    With this slightly uninspired (yet bloody expensive) designed poster the Donkey finally has a complete set of original Bond STB posters ranging from Dr.No through to Live And Let Die -{

    Covered at length in another post which some AJBers may not have seen? however an incredibly rare 1967 Japanese STB or two panel poster for Sean Connery's 5th outing as 007 in You Only Live Twice featuring a full body image of Sir Sean painted by Robert McGinnis with the signature Walther LP53 air pistol being replaced by an MGC suppressed replica Walther PPK and Bond's head being cropped from the one featured on all the other Japanese design YOLT posters. Not much is known about this particular poster. It has been suggested that it was created for the premiere screening in Japan and has only been featured in the excellent License To Thrill Bond poster book by Thomas Nixdorf and his excellent Bond poster exhibition guide where it is featured in an A4 size full page colour image, in fact this nutty Donkey has been trying to track this poster down since the LTT book in question was first published -{

    Well it's been a while (my posting anything) but thankfully where for Quantum of Solace through to SPECTRE, for No Time to Die the Japanese have not gone with the international bland/couldn't be bothered? movie poster designs and have pushed the boat out with this stunning montage design. Surprisingly only 500 B2 posters were printed for the Japanese cinema campaign with these changing hands for similar prices to those achieved by the 1970s re-release Bond B2 posters.

    This could be as rare as rocking horse pooh? When Goldfinger hit the big screens in 1964 there was no mention of Shirley Eaton on the U.K. movie posters where she had star status on the US materials. To correct this oversight? NSS issued over flashes to be stuck beneath Gert Frobe to line up with and incorporate the printed TECHNICOLOR. I’ve owned this quad for in excess of 40 years and have never seen another with the Shirley Eaton over flash. Even EON’s archived example is the standard quad.

    Had a look in the Goldfinger UK Campaign Book and there is no reference to that in there, I think its the even rarer rocking donkey pooh version!!!!!

    That's terrific; one of the very best I think.


    A bit off-topic, but has the photo of Sean & Honor which is being projected there ever appeared in its original form?

    Welcome to Japan Mr Bond!

    A rarely seen original 1963 first issue Japanese B2 poster for Dr.No which you will not find in Thomas Nixdorf's excellent License to Thrill, Tony Nourmond's Official 007 poster book or DK's 50th Anniversary Bond poster book/coffee table tome although it did make its way into Thomas Nixdorf's Bond poster exhibition catalogue. I believe the translation of the symbols is 007 the Killing Number! which is kind of appropriate for the slice and dice main image! This would be a perfect image apart from the pigs ear the graphic artist made when cutting out Bond's Walther PP pistol. Most books and indeed some auction houses illustrate the 1966 rerelease poster which features a Walther PP as the main image as the first issue!

    1966 Japanese B2 rerelease design.
