Original United Artists British Front-of-House (8x10). Rare. Very Fine Condition.

Original United Artists British Front-of-House Set (8x10) for the Terrence Young spy thriller, DR. NO (1962) -- starring Sean Connery, Ursula Andress, and Joseph Wiseman. This was the first James Bond feature film, and it profited from the creator Ian Fleming being greatly involved in the production. There is no overload of explosions or special effects. The plot can be told clearly, taken seriously, and enjoyed from start to finish. DR. NO set the standards, albeit on a limited budget, for the entire series. Connery's brilliant use of charm, coolness, and cruelty truly defined the Bond character, and his portrayal of the ultimate spy has never been equaled. The film was a box office smash success and vindicated the studio's decision to sign the unknown Connery. Front-of-House cards fulfilled much the same purpose as American lobby cards, but they are much, much rarer. Tiny pinholes in each corner betray that these cards were displayed somewhere, perhaps in a cinema in 1962. Otherwise, these cards are in very fine condition. Rare!
