You Only Live Twice (1967) poster, French

Artist: Joseph Benari 

Advance 

Unframed Dimensions: 94 x 32 in. (239 x 81 cm)


This was the fifth time that Sean Connery would play James Bond 007. Owing to the success of the previous films, three different British posters were designed for this film.


This advance French poster, with the classic image of Sean Connery in a tuxedo with his right arm across his body, holding his gun, was first seen on the British poster for From Russia with Love in 1963. This image of James Bond has become synonymous with 007. The same image appears alongside the credits on all three of the British posters for this film. However, the French distributors had Joseph Benari re-work this image of Bond in his own style. This style of poster would have been pasted on billboards in major cities in France months ahead of the release of the film, and act as a teaser, as there is no mention of the name of the film.


This exceptionally rare huge billboard poster has only surfaced a couple of times over the past twenty years.
