Just picked up this little number. I've been looking for a copy for a while and finally got it. I know it's from a reissue pressbook but I've always liked the layout.

Thanks. It's a Argentine reissue from a year unknown. Totally different than the original which is like the style A 1-sheet. The graphics don't make much sense (too many girls) but I do like the layout.

Good catch Cabman, that doesn't pop up very often.
Way better than the local first release poster

The Kill Bill B1 is probably one of the best modern posters there is.  A collector's must.

Yep. I was about to point out that there is one available on YJ auctions right now, but I see it sold this morning.
Maybe someone grabbed it after seeing the post here.

Yes, I saw that one too.  That seller has tried selling it for 2 years or so (listing it on and off), he posted it about 2 weeks ago and gradually dropped the price from about $1000 to what it finally sold yesterday at about $700.

Thanks for the comments Tob, Thierry, Crowzilla!    :)

The seller had posted the Uma Thurman and Daryl Hannah B1s which I snatched up about a minute after he posted them.

In the item description,  he wrote that he was given these when he worked at a theater in Tokyo.  Set off alarm bells as I think I had read that the Desert style was only used in Tokyo.

He then sent me a message saying he'll be posting a few more posters in the next few minutes .... I dropped everything I was doing and kept hitting reload on his page for about 20 minutes ... he posted a KB2 pink Uma banner size .... passed .... then a KB2 Uma the Bride B1.... passed .... then my grail.

My finger was actually shaking when I hit the buy button....

Picked this up tonight. Never seen one available before. Had been looking for the "Why So Serious" one sheet but would rather spend more on a rarity like this. Double sided 37x77.

Great image. I always wanted the Japanese B1 but never managed to get one. I have the Subway though which I really like. Congratulations.

Thank you everyone. I may have over paid may have under paid. No idea. Have never seen one come up for sale. Also got this Jaws Yugoslavian.

I don't think you overpaid.  $600 seems like a good price to me.  The Jaws was cheap too.  I thought of getting it, but passed when I realized I own 32 posters with this exact design.  I mean, one shouldn't be too greedy, right?

What are the dimensions of The Little Foxes posters, Redman.  Certainly not something you see everyday!  Okie

A bit of a reach with this item.  Indeed it is not even a poster so please bear with me.

The closest I can get is to say that in its time, it contained a poster, a 1 Sheet I am told, and a pressbook, and a set of lobby cards, and a letter from Eon Productions.

The Goldfinger, golden briefcase that was handed out at the premiere, I am told.  Although, if it was Just the premiere and not some promotion function, not sure why the average premiere attendee would have been interested in Pressbooks and letters from the producers.

While I own all the listed contents excepting the letter, there's something about having the item as a complete set.  And so, with that in mind, I might have to acquire again the PB, LCs and poster.

Has anyone ever seen an image of said letter?
