“The Man with the Golden Gun” (1974): Danish theatrical posters
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:
“Moonraker”: Danish second edition paperback (1966)
“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).
