  • Description
    UK quad poster for the film starring Sean Connery as James Bond.
    Stock Code 103789
    N.p., Eon/United Artists, 1965
    Quad poster, first issue with sea-foam green background (later printings exist with white background). Along with From Russia With Love (by Renato Fratini), this art illustration by Robert McGinnis is arguably the other most attractive and desirable of any of the UK poster designs. Linen-backed with routine retouching to background at edges.

    Until Skyfall (2012), Thunderball was the highest grossing Bond film (taking into account inflation). The film was presented by the usual Bond producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli but produced by Kevin McClory. McClory was deemed to have contributed to the original Ian Fleming novel and, after legal action, he was awarded the screen rights that included the character of Blofeld and the organisation SPECTRE. The film was one of the first to feature cinematic action underwater.

    First issue on sea-foam green background, 760 x 1015 mm; backed on linen; some retouching and stabilising repairs around extremities, including the bottom most line of text, otherwise a very good example of this iconic Bond poster.
