Re: Donk's Modest Bond collection

Here's an interesting piece which just surfaced at auction from a cinema in Manchester put on the Donkey's radar by my good friend Acacia_Avenue  ajb007/martini
Measuring 148cm x 134cm x 2.3cm (so larger than a US subway poster), mounted on wood, initially it looks like it may have been pieced together from a quad poster however the lettering is painted. The dates do correspond to December 1964. The image of Mr Connery is taken from a Goldfinger press still shot on the set under the Fort Knox model where Bond was imprisoned by Goldfinger's Korean guards but where did it come from? For From Russia With Love and indeed Thunderball poster sets were sent to cinema managers to cut up to produce their own Front of House bespoke displays and even though such an item has not been recorded for Goldfinger? this is what this collector believes the piece to be so perhaps the only known surviving example? Whatever it is I think it is bloody fantastic!  ajb007/heart

Donk, it was a pleasure to assist in adding to 'the Modest Collection'
A Very important prop added (temporarily) to an equally great collection.
