“Diamonds are Forever”: Danish VHS cover (1983)

"Diamonds are Forever" (EON 1971) was among the first James Bond 007 films to be released on home video in Denmark in 1983. The front cover for the rental VHS issued by Metronome Video was based on Robert McGinnis' artwork for the original theatrical poster.

The back cover blurb includes the little-known fact that Bond girl Jill St. John's race-car driving ex-husband Lawrence "Lance" Reventlow was of noble Danish-German heritage (although he assumed the title of count and not baron as stated in the text).

“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.
