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. Issued for the first Japanese release of the film in 1964, this action-packed poster pictures a close-up Connery front and centre, floating within the cut-out digits 007, with his trademark Walther PPK cocked and aimed from above.
Very Good (B+)
Unfolded, not backed. Wavy undulation to paper from being lightly and softly tri-folded with a stack of other posters at one time. Creasing to edges around wavy tri-folds. A few light dings and creases throughout. Image and colours otherwise excellent.
