This was the fourth in the James Bond series, and stars Sean Connery. The film was directed by Terence Young, who had directed the first Bond film, Dr. No and second film, From Russia with Love. James Bond films are well known for their gadgets. This film is no exception with the introduction of Bond's Bell Rocket Belt (developed by Bell Aircraft Corporation).
In 1964 with the release of Goldfinger, Aston Martin realised the potential advertising power of James Bond driving an Aston Martin. In 1965 Bond continued to drive a DB5 in Thunderball. Aston Martin collaborated with the studio to produce an advance poster for their dealership walls. This is one of the rarest posters on this title, owing to the fact that it was printed in collaboration with Aston Martin and not for theatrical release.

Linen-backed, unfolded and conservation framed with UV plexiglass. Very good condition with the colours remaining very strong. Minor restoration to take marks in all four corners, and a tear in the middle of the poster.
