Description

    Thunderball (United Artists, 1965). Advance British Quad or Quad Crown Poster Style A (30" X 40"). This extremely rare, and highly sought, country of origin British Quad is one we have not offered before, and which 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. The non stop action takes place in the air, on the land, and in the sea. Bond is up against mastermind Emilio Largo (Adolfo Celi), and his diabolical SPECTRE agents, who have hijacked nuclear weapons. This is the very rare Advance Quad of which only a handful of copies still exist or left uncut and 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 as there were no Double Crown's sold to theater in 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 and shows 6 different Double Crown posters that can be made from cutting the teaser poster. The poster has edge wear at the top and surface paper scuffs from tape removal at the top edge. This extraordinary quad is the ultimate in Bond artwork and one we are very excited to present. Folded, Very Fine.
