“From Russia with Love”: Danish theatrical poster (1963)

"From Russia with Love", the second James Bond 007 film from EON Productions, was released into Danish cinemas on 20 December 1963 by United Artists.

This striking monochrome theatrical poster was based on Renato Fratini's artwork for the UK Double Crown poster, in turn based on a promotional photo by David Hurn.

The name of the original Bond novelist, Ian Fleming, has been danicized into Jan Fleming in concordance with the spelling on the books' first editions in Denmark.

The film's Danish title, "Agent 007 jages", translates as "Agent 007 is being hunted".

“Dr. No”: Danish theatrical poster (1963)

FILM POSTER

 
On 5 April 1963, United Artists released EON Productions' "Dr. No" theatrically in Denmark. The film's Danish title reads "Agent 007 mission: drab" [Agent 007 Mission: Kill].

The theatrical poster pictured below, measuring 83x62 cm, was produced for the first Danish cinema release of "Dr. No.". The poster was clearly inspired by the UK campaign, with the addition of a striking yellow-black-white color scheme. The uncredited artist who traced Mitchell Hooks' artwork of the four Bond girls from the UK poster might have been an employee at United Artists' distribution office in Denmark.

Ian Fleming 's name is Danicized to Jan Fleming on the poster, concordant with the first Danish editions of his James Bond 007 novels. The director's name, Terence Young, and EON Productions are both misspelled.
