Sir Miles & DG,
During my pursuits of Robert McGinnis items, I made a lot of friends with similar interests, all of which own McGinnis original artworks.
My McGinnis collection range from the vintage paperbacks featuring McGinnis artworks - signed and unsigned, McGinnis artworks books, McGinnis prints, and so far two original artworks.
One of my circle of friends is Paul Jilbert - the producer and director of the best McGinnis documentary - "Painting the Last Rose of Summer". I highly recommend purchasing this DVD by him - http://theillustratorstv.com/
I will start another thread and post more pictures relating to McGinnis.
Sorry ppw3o6r ajb007/biggrin

Re: The Most Extraordinary Gentleman Spy in all Fiction-Agent 007 Posters

The year is 1973 and after just one more outing as 007 in Diamonds are Forever Sean Connery has "passed the shoe" to a "New James Bond", Roger Moore. It is a time of Blaxploitation at the movies with such kick ass characters as Cleopatra Jones and Shaft to name but a few and lets not forget Dirty Harry, the writers and producers sure as hell didn't!, so if that's what the movie going public wanted then United Artists were happy to oblige with the drug & voodoo fueled "Live and Let Die".
The poster art campaign by Robert McGinnis was and indeed is spectacular capturing many key elements from the movie with a feature of Solitaire's tarot cards and the incredible speedboat chase sequence.
This the US insert poster is one of the more pleasing designs, appearing almost identical to the main poster design with an off-centre positioned 007 and the almost unnoticed omission of the "Fortune" character to Bond's far right which may have been a brave choice for a US poster baring in mind the theme of the movie. With a great theme song by Paul McCartney & Wings and kick ass 1970's orchestrations by George Martin Live and Let Die worked on all levels. Bond in flared trousers, next he'll have blonde/fair hair and appear to be able to handle a firearm correctly on screen...unheard of!

Re: The Most Extraordinary Gentleman Spy in all Fiction-Agent 007 Posters

The year is 1974 & Roger Moore returns to the role of James Bond in perhaps his most memorable role up against the most memorable adversary, Francisco Scaramanga, magnificently portrayed by Christopher Lee in "The Man with the Golden Gun"

Yet again the artistic talents of Robert McGinnis were called upon to create images for the poster art campaign. Utilising the central image of Bond from his Live and Let Die campaign painting McGinnis captured an incredible montage of images of the hand of Scaramanga preparing to take out his believed intended victim, 007, with his magnificent ficticious 4.2mm Golden Gun.

This the US insert poster like the US insert for Live and Live Die has an off centre positioned 007 which appears at first glance identical to the international main poster art although amazingly it is The Man with the Golden Gun himself who has been omitted from this particular version.

Latest poster aquisition:
http://s14.postimage.org/l44zjiu7x/DSC00628.jpg

This is an ultra rare pair of British double crowns displayed as a door panel for 1971's Diamonds are Forever. If you've ever seen another original pair you are probably looking at the front advertising panels of a British Routemaster bus 40 years ago or are standing in the poster section of the EON Archive?

I always thought these were from a Bus Panel!
Thanks for the info!

I would like to see the poster sticky tread too - in the most part poster collecting is (to quote the old woman at the casino table in OHMSS) too rich for my blood but I love being able to see such great items in your collections - and thanks for all who share such great works of art on here too! ajb007/biggrin

Dr No Thai issue poster

Not much known about this stunning artwork except that its not from 1962 as it claims to be. The artwork is clearly inspired by the Japanese early 1970s re-release posters right down to a direct copy of the replica Walther PPK with silencer featured on the Japanese posters.

Happy to help with any small amount of knowledge I have but I need some expertise here. I have always been led to beleive that this poster was a rush job due to a shortage of cinema release posters. Apologies its a UK quad. Anyway I never really believed it and think maybe it was printed for Ireland due to censorship of female images. Anyone got any better idea?

Re: The Most Extraordinary Gentleman Spy in all Fiction-Agent 007 Posters

I agree with Kan, Frank Mccarthy was a fantastic visual artist when it came to action. I own a reproduction of the Little Nellie poster from You Only Live Twice and it has quickly become one of my favorite Bond posters. Also I equaly enjoy the reproduction of The first From Russia With Love poster that DG has in his collection.
