James Bond Movie Posters

Recently I posted clips of the opening sequences from the James Bond films starring Sean Connery. I'm a big fan of the Bond theme songs. I'm also a big fan of the Bond movie posters. Here are some posters for your viewing pleasure. So which of these posters do you like the best?

I am fond of "From Russia with Love" - huge James Bond/Sean Connery fan. Especially since I married a Scotsman! My father's marching band traveled to Dublin to marching in the St. Patricks Day parade years ago & they marched to the James Bond theme. The Europeans went nuts. There was even a band member dressed in a tux holding a champagne glass. I will never forget. Fabulous post Keith!!

Keith said...

Hey Dumbwit. Thanks for commenting. I really enjoyed your response. I'm glad you are a big James Bond fan. I love From Russia With Love. That's so cool about that band. The theme song for the movies is such an awesome tune. Glad you liked this post. Cheers!

Allison said...

I absolutely love all of these movie posters! The first one is my favorite...I love the colors! =)
I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and thanks for sharing all of these!

All of those posters are so fun, they are so over the top! Which is perfect for a Bond poster. lol

They just don't make them like they used to. These are great!

Keith said...

Hey Maggi. Thanks. I agree. They are quite over the top. That fits perfectly with 007.

Keith said...

Hey La C. Thanks. 007 and hot babes definitely fit together perfectly.

Keith said...

Hey Rachel. Thanks. I agree. They don't make posters like this anymore.

Keith said...

Hey Leah. Thanks. That's so cool. Connery is my favorite Bond.

Keith said...

Hey Clare. Thanks. I'm happy you enjoyed these posters. They are amazing. They did have some great graphic designers back in those days. The one for YOLT is very awesome.
