Considered the quintessential and definitive Bond film, the third installment in EON Productions' James Bond series set the template for many of the subsequent films, with its tongue in cheek humour, extensive use of gadgets and technology and multiple foreign locations. The first Bond blockbuster, 1964's Goldfinger was also the first Bond film to utilise a standalone pre-credits sequence, the first to employ a pop star to sing the theme song and the first to win an Academy Award. The plot saw 007 uncover a plot to contaminate the United States gold reserve at Fort Knox while investigating the smuggling activities of powerful gold magnate Auric Goldfinger. This stunning poster designed by prolific Swedish poster artist Gosta Aberg dates from a 1967 Swedish re-release. Aberg designed around 1000 film posters, many of which are held in the collection of the Technical Museum in Stockholm.
Very Good (B+)
Unfolded, not backed. Minor nicks to edges and bumps to corners. Some light creases through image including a partial diagonal crease from just above James Bond's head to Pussy Galore's wrist. Image and colours otherwise excellent.
