George Lazenby made his only appearance as James Bond in EON Productions On Her Majesty's Secret Service, the sixth in the series and the first following Sean Connery's retirement from the role after You Only Lice Twice. Designed for the French release, Yves Thos and Jouineau Bourduge's striking illustration of the suave secret agent clutching a pair of skis with his signature martini and Walther PPK hints at the snowy stunts filmed on location in Switzerland, as Bond chases the evil Blofeld. Popular with the ski set, this mammoth poster has previously sold for as much as £3,500 at Christie's auction house in London.
Very good (B+ to A-)
Backed on linen. Issued on 2 sheets, this poster had a total of three vertical and five horizontal machine folds prior to backing, with wear to folds and minor loss to crossfolds, one 4 ½ in. vertical tear from upper horizontal fold to right of skis, and printers ink transfer to white ground in places. Backed in the european style with no restoration whatsoever, backing has smoothed out the folds and improved the appearance for display. Image and colours excellent.
