James Bond 'Thunderball' Original US Subway Movie Poster, 1965

About

In Sean Connery's fourth outing as suave secret agent James Bond, 'Thunderball' saw the British spy dispatched to the Bahamas to recover two nuclear warheads stolen by SPECTRE, culminating in an underwater battle with villain Emilio Largo's henchmen. "Look Here! For The Biggest Bond of All!" announced the promotional posters, signalling an even more extravagant and spectacular film experience than its predecessors following the phenomenal success of 'Goldfinger.' With an inflated budget of $5.5 million, the complex production was the first to be shot in Panavision widescreen and included numerous underwater scenes spanning a quarter of the film. A box office smash, 'Thunderball' remained the highest-grossing Bond film until surpassed by 'Live and Let Die' in 1973 and, adjusted for inflation, remains the second-most financially successful Bond film after 'Skyfall.' Two artists were brought on board to create the various fantastical poster designs which alerted fans to "Look Here! Look Up! Look Down! Look Out!" as Bond was back in action on land, in the sea and in the air. Now synonymous with the Bond aesthetic, Robert McGinnis was enlisted for his skill in depicting beautiful women, and Frank McCarthy for his ability to produce energetic, larger than life action scenes. McGinnis artwork showing Bond in his traditional pose, albeit with a spear gun in place of his Walther PPK, flanked by a bevy of beautiful Bond girls, was chosen for this US Subway poster.
