    Description

    On Her Majesty's Secret Service (United Artists, 1969). Insert (14" X 36"). This landmark Bond film marked a turning point for the hugely popular series in many ways. First, and most obvious, is the fact that it was the first film to feature someone other than Sean Connery as Ian Fleming's legendary superspy, Agent 007. This time around, producers chose Australian male model George Lazenby for the part. They also greatly dialed back the use of outrageous gadgets, forcing this Bond to rely far more on his wits than on Q's devices. Finally, it was decided with this movie to give Bond more depth of character, as this film is the first to see him actually fall in love, with predictably tragic results. Of course, many of the Bond trappings remain, including the exotic locales and the beautiful girls, with the stunning Diana Rigg (from TV's The Avengers) admirably essaying the role of luscious Bond girl Tracy Di Vicenzo. This lovely insert, which features an exciting shot of Lazenby and Rigg, has pinholes in the corners and borders, a single vertical fold line at the bottom, light edge wear, and magic marker where someone has crossed out a legal notice. These minor considerations aside, this is a very attractive piece from one of the best films in the series. Very Fine-.
