Ah, wishful thinking. If we only could have had Elke Sommer in one of those early Bond films.

Someone in Turkey would have a shock seeing that poster, turning up to see the film only to realise the only tall statuesque blonde in You Only Live Twice is a bloke called Hans :)

There is another Bond connection with the poster for Deadlier than the Male. In the Japanese version you can see Richard Johnson standing behind a huge chess piece. The same statue/chess piece was used in Scaramangas playhouse in The Man with the Golden Gun. Both films were made at Pinewood Studios. Part of the whole chess set , made of fiberglass was later used as garden gnomes in the garden at Pinewood. They were last seen overgrown somewhere on the lot.

I went to the 1990 Bond Fan Club Convention that Graham Rye organised at Pinewood. Those chess pieces were dotted around then, I had my picture taken in front of one.
I also have a photo of a very weird looking cross legged stone (fiberglass?) demon statue which I later found out was a prop from Ridley Scott's Legend: it was lying sideways behind a wire fence, slowely mouldering. I guess these things just become part of the furniture in a place like Pinewood.
