“Casino Royale” (1967): Danish re-release poster

Columbia Pictures' comedic version of "Casino Royale" was released in Danish theatres on December 21, 1967. The poster below was made not for the initial Columbia-Fox release but a subsequent re-release by Nordisk Film.

The Danish poster design incorporates Robert McGinnis' tattooed female figure from the international campaign but places greater emphasis on the many famous actors who appear in "James Bond 007 - Casino Royale", no matter how briefly: George Raft and William Holden's combined screen time amounts to less than a minute!

Four still photographs have also been added, one of which features Peter Sellers doing a Nazi salute dressed as Adolf Hitler.

To add insult to injury Ian Fleming, whose novel was rendered wholly unrecognizable by this adaptation, is misspelled "Ian Flemming". A similar fate befalls two of the film's numerous directors, Val Guest ("Val Buest") and Joe McGrath ("Joe McBrath").

“Diamonds are Forever”: Danish souvenir programme (1971)

COLLECTABLE

 
In December 1971, the Danish branch of United Artists released this 16-page souvenir programme in A6 format to mark the Danish cinema release of "Diamonds are Forever" (EON Productions 1971). The programme was distributed for free in selected cinemas during the film's theatrical run in Denmark.

Oddly enough, United Artists' publicity department neglects to mention Bond girl Jill St. John's former marriage to Danish-American nobleman Lance Reventlow.

If anyone owns a copy of this programme without perforations, James Bond•O•Rama.dk would love to receive a hi-res scan.

“Goldfinger” (1964): Danish theatrical posters

POSTER

 
In December 1964, United Artists released the third James Bond 007 film from EON Productions, "Agent 007 contra Goldfinger" (Goldfinger), into Danish cinemas.

An unnamed designer created this simple one-sheet for the Danish market with artwork culled from existing materials.

Renato Fratini's illustration of Sean Connery as James Bond was recycled from the 1963 release poster for "Agent 007 jages" (From Russia with Love). The horizontal image of the golden girl, Jill Masterson (Shirley Eaton), was adapted from a still photograph owned by The Everett Collection (Eaton's left arm is missing on the Danish poster).

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

"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".
