“You Only Live Twice”: Danish VHS rental cover (1986)

In 1983 Warner Home Video began releasing the James Bond 007 films on rental video (VHS) in Danmark through local distributor Metronome Video A/S.

The VHS cover below is for the first Danish rental of "You Only Live Twice" (EON 1967) released in 1986. The front cover is adapted from Frank McCarthy's artwork for the international theatrical campaign.

The back cover blurb erroneously names "From Russia with Love" (EON 1963) as the previous film in the series and claims an actor called "Ernest Stavre" to be the voice of Blofeld.

The original Danish theatrical poster for "The Man with the Golden Gun" (EON 1974) was based on the film's international poster campaign with artwork by Robert McGinnis.

The tagline reads: "AGENT 007 - for the ninth time", thus discounting Columbia's "Casino Royale" (1967). Note that the name Christopher Lee is misspelled on the release poster:
