DescriptionCasino Royale (Columbia, 1967). Fine+. Italian Photobustas Set of 10 (18" X 26").
Offered here is a seldom seen complete set of ten Italian photobustas, along with their original studio envelope, for the first release of Casino Royale. Prior to Albert Broccoli and Harry Saltzman's deal with Ian Fleming, Columbia Pictures purchased the rights to this James Bond novel. When Sean Connery's embodiment of the spy became popular around the world, the studio completely rewrote Casino Royale as a highly stylized comedy spoof. An all-star cast, including Woody Allen, David Niven, Peter Sellers, Ursula Andress, Orson Welles, Deborah Kerr, William Holden, Charles Boyer, and John Huston provide their talents in this over-the-top take on agent 007. All have surface wrinkling, there is some edge wear and several have light surface scuffs and wear. There is a soft vertical center fold. The colors are excellent and the photobustas present a great selection of scenes and actor portraits from the film.
Estimate: $700 - $1,400.
Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
