    Description

    Thunderball (United Artists, 1965). British Quad (30" X 40") Advance British Quad/Quad Crown Style A.
    This extremely rare and highly sought country of origin British quad will surely be the highlight of all Bond fans' attentions. Ian Fleming's agent 007 is at his most spectacular, with Sean Connery in his fourth, and some say best, outing as Bond. As seen on this advance quad, the non stop action takes place in the air, on the land, and in the sea. Only a small number of copies still exist left uncut and this is the only poster from this film to use the artwork featured on the lower right side by Robert McGinnis and Frank McCarthy. The poster was advertised in the British pressbook as the Quad Crown Poster as it was meant to be cut into double crown posters by the theater owner (there were no double crowns distributed for the promotions). Instead, the pressbook gives instructions to the theater manager to 'CUT' the teaser poster into pieces to make a variety of double crowns. The poster has some light smudging in the top left white background. This extraordinary quad is the ultimate in Bond artwork and one we are very pleased to present. A small tear in the bottom border is the only sign of handling. From the James Bond / Ian Fleming collection of Gary Firuta. Folded, Very Fine+.
