Over half a century ago
on December 29th 1965 – Thunderball – ‘The Biggest Bond of All’ was
unleashed on the world at its simultaneous star-studded world premiere at
the London Pavilion and the Rialto cinemas in London’s West End – and the
Bond bonanza of the 1960s was in full swing! The fourth Bond film in the
series boasted a superb advertising poster campaign with illustrative
posters by American fine artists Robert McGinnis and Frank C. McCarthy
Only five of a variety of
artworks they produced for Thunderball were eventually used in the
UK and US poster campaigns, while others, for various reasons, were
dropped from the campaigns.
The rare Thunderball artwork offered here as a Limited Edition high
quality art poster was originally painted by Robert McGinnis, but was
never used in the final advertising poster campaigns for the film as it
was decided to use the ‘Bond & Bond Girls’ artwork not featuring James
Bond wearing a diving mask on his head.
The art poster image (size: 594mm x 792mm) is suitable for framing in a
style of your choice and is printed on SRA1 (size: 640mm x 900mm) 200 GSM
weight silk finish paper. Each art print is despatched in a sturdy
cardboard mailing roll. A Limited Edition of 100 posters!
