    Description

    From Russia with Love (United Artists, 1964). Italian 2 - Foglio (39.5" X 55.25").
    Artist Averardo Ciriello brilliantly depicts Sean Connery as Agent 007 on this magnificent Italian poster, featuring a radically different (and more impressive) image than the American paper. James Bond creator Ian Fleming was initially unsure about Connery playing his beloved character, but was reportedly won over upon viewing this second theatrical outing, the first 007 film he had personally seen. After the success of Dr. No, the producers doubled the budget for its sequel, and subsequently production on Goldfinger had already started by the time From Russia With Love was released. This very rare find is a must for Bond completists, and has only been offered by Heritage once before. The poster has been restored to address a tear in the upper left corner, a small tear in the lower portion of Connery's image, and chips in three borders. Touchup has been applied to the upper right corner and the folds, and there is a scuff in Lionel Bart's credit. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
