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.

Is or As James Bond?

The US campaign for "You Only Live Twice" used the slogan "Sean Connery IS James Bond" in 1967. When the film was re-released in the early '70 during the Roger Moore area this was not strictly true any more. Consequently the existing posters and lobby cards were re-labeled to "Sean Connery as James Bond", usually be covering the "IS" with "AS". Some examples from the US, Argentina, Australia, Sweden and Italy.
