We might need someone a little more objective than the current Bond actorís wife!

This might segue into a previous but similar topic about there being a black Bond. 

In the same way that I proffered that was absolutely fine so long as we can reasonably entertain the idea of Shaft being played by Hugh Grant, Or Obama by Rupert Everett, so too can we consider Wonder Woman being played by Hugh Jackman!

I think the idea of women with their own stories and characters is absolutely right.

There are about three people in the entire world for whom I am performing this public service.  And what is even further questionable is that I know not one of their names.

Skyfall and SPECTRE had a few one sheets and quads produced.  The designs were woeful so this is less about the celebration of art and more about an indexing of variations for the world's three people who could possibly give a sh-t.  The timing of this is due to a couple of additions for variations that I had thought not available.

Below is all that I have in my collection so all these have been printed as opposed to the variety of digital images that make their merry way around the virtual world. 

SF means Skyfall.
US 1 sheets are also probably the International ones.  Read and weep.

That isnt really a recall, a recall is "send them back to us". That is a replace, which is very common when new versions come out that they request this. The destroy is also common as they obviously dont want stuff sold.

So Bond's whiteness is intrinsic to his character? Not being fictitious, i'm asking as someone who knows fuck all about Bond.

Simes,

Just wondering in regards to the recent sale of this hard to find version of Skyfall (link below) how rare it is? I was keen to bid but it got rather high so i thought i would hold out for another copy

Well, for my insignificant part, about as intrinsic, as I said earlier, as Obama being portrayed by a white actor.  Like Weisz said, if women want to play a spy, get their own character.  Like Jolie's Salt.  One doesn't have to take a lazy route to ticket sales by selling a well known concept and messing with it like that.  It would be a gimmick without lasting effect or duration.

Bond in the novels was described as white, with black hair and a comma of which fell over his right eye.  Clearly we don't currently have that in Craig's portrayal - it just depends on how much one wants to mess with a character's physical description.

All to my mind of course.

Hi,

Yes.  I mentioned this one at the tail end of the post about the two SPECTRE Odeon posters.  To my mind it was likely to have been a $40 poster.  But, as Bruce said, he had never auctioned one before so I don't know.

I have one I bought when Skyfall was hitting the screens and thereafter did not notice whether others had cropped up for sale.

There were four character banners for the film, of which only one it seems was printed into 1 Sheet format.  I never saw any others in 1 sheet form so it does appear to be an anomaly.

But, the price did surprise me.

Craig doesnt strike me as a Bond persona at all. He doesn't fit "the look," and he almost has a face better suited to a villain (in only my mind's eye and thought, of course).

I looked at Timothy Dalton's portrayal in much the same way. Yes, he had the dark shock of hair and build, but he is look always struck me as more evil or sinister. (And maybe that's one of the reasons that his version of Bond was short lived?)  dontknow.gif

One for here and also the What's on Your Walls thread...

Something I did for a friend who wanted something OHMSS on his wall.  Bought from EMP, archivally restored by Alain Bourguoin and framed in Windsor with museum glass (UV and non-reflective).



So chuffed was he with the results (all fold lines removed etc.) that he is thinking the way to go is for one insert from each of the actors.  Connery, Moore and maybe Dalton if life progresses that far.
