International OHMSS Posters

International poster for "On Her Majesty's Secret Service": Australian Daybill and 1 sheet, Japanese B2s and STB, 1 sheets from Argentina.

OHMSS Lobby Cards from Germany

German lobby cards - called Aushangfotos -  for "Im Geheimdienst Ihrer Majestaet" (On Her Majesty's Secret Service). The first release set consisted of 40 lobby cards. The reissue set of 16 lobby cards featured 3 new photos not used in the original release. I don't own the originals so I'm not sure which ones are which.

It appears that the reissue set did not have the FSK rating stamp and was also smaller in size.

French lobby cards for "Au service secret de sa Majesté" (On Her Majesty's Secret Service). These were issued as 2 sets of 9 cards as set A and B called "Heliogravures Couleurs Jeu A (& B)".
Reference is the French pressbook from OHMSS, kindly provided by Frédéric from ASSOCIATION 007 COLLECTORS.

From Russia With Love Japanese Style

Initially I was not too keen on the Japanese posters as they were photo-montages and not painted. But they grew on me and they are quite fun to imitate. Now that I've done Dr. No I had to add "From Russia With Love" as well.
