Ian Fleming's Dr. No, the classic 1962 (released in England in October 1962 and first released in the U.S. in May 1963) Terence Young English James Bond 007 secret agent spy espionage romantic fantasy action adventure thriller ("Now... Meet the most extraordinary gentleman spy in All fiction........ James Bond Agent 007...!"; "The first James Bond film adventure!"; "James Bond, his code 007"; "The double '0' means he has a license to kill when he chooses... Where he chooses...

Important Added Info: Note that there are two different (yet very similar) first release one-sheets for Dr. No, the first James Bond! One of them has a litho number of 62-2004, and that one looks incredibly like the other one, except the colors in the poster are slightly darker, and the biggest difference is that the smoke from Connery's gun is colored a yellow that matches the girl's leg (so that it is hard to realize it is smoke). The other one-sheet has a litho number of 62-2238, and the colors are clearly lighter, and the smoke from the gun has been changed to be white, so that it does NOT blend into the girl's leg! The only logical explanation for this is that the poster with the lower litho number was printed first, and then someone connected with the movie noticed that the smoke was not very visible, and they asked them to create a new one-sheet with different coloring so that the smoke would be more visible (and likely, at that time, they also asked them to lighten the colors, for whatever reason). We have checked all of the previous 1962 Dr. No one-sheets we have auctioned, and they include approximately one half of each version, so it seems that one is not more rare than the other. The poster offered here is the "yellow smoke" version!

Condition: very good to fine. the most minor of creases, rippling, and smudges around the edges of the poster, and to a lesser extent along the foldlines and in the white background areas; The above is truly nitpicking! The poster is in really about as nice condition as one could hope (and it is entirely unrestored, and there is not a piece of tape or a pinhole anywhere on it!)
