“Live and Let Die”: First Danish retail VHS (1989)

In 1989 Warner Home Video issued all of the James Bond 007 films (except the Columbia-produced "Casino Royale" from 1967) on retail VHS through local distributor Metronome Video. The Bond films had not previously been available for sale in Denmark.

This initial retail series had specially designed cover art with raster graphics on a metallic grey background which was obviously meant to resemble Maurice Binder's famous gunbarrel design.

The eighth cassette in the series was "Live and Let Die" (EON 1973):

A lesser-known Danish James Bond 007 connection is the BMW Z8 driven by Pierce Brosnan in "The World is Not Enough" (EON 1999). The car was designed by Danish-born Henrik Fisker who is quoted in the following spread from "The James Bond Car Collection" no. 4/2007:

"The car is timeless ... beautifully sculpted. Even today I wouldn't change a thing on it."

The partwork magazine was published by Eaglemoss Publications in the UK and sold with a collectable miniature model of the BMW.
