Almost every official
general release or re-release of the James Bond films in the US from from
1963 to 1979 had a six-sheet poster (81" x 81") created for in-house cinema displays and
advertising hoardings across the country. These colourful and highly
stylised posters are now collectors items and command high prices when
sold at auction. 6-Sheet posters were
usually printed in at least two sections and later assembled for
subsequent pasting onto small billboards during the release of the film.
Studios stopped issuing
6-Sheet posters in the early 1970's, although some generic international
versions existed until the end of the decade. This size of poster was
discontinued in 1983.
