In Sean Connery's second outing as James Bond, From Russia With Love saw the British spy battling a secret crime organisation known as Spectre. The follow-up to 007's 1962 debut in Dr. No, Terence Young's From Russia With Love further developed the Bond formula with elaborate titles, fast-paced action sequences, a John Barry score and the introduction of Desmond LLewelyn as Q with his myriad gadgets, a role he would play for 36 years. Designed for a 1972 Japanese re-release, this action-packed poster pictures a close-up Connery front and centre with his trademark Walther PPK.
Very good (B)
Unfolded, not backed. Minor creases to edges. Slight darkening to edges. A thin 5in. line of very slight discolouration to lower centre with light restoration, which is not very noticeable. Image and colours otherwise excellent.
