James Bond Agent 007 no. 29: “For Your Eyes Only” (1974)
“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)
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.
