This iconic poster by designer Robert Brownjohn - with the image of Shirley Eaton covered in gold paint, together with Sean Connery and Honor Blackman in the foreground - is undoubtedly the most recognisable Bond poster.
This was the third time that Sean Connery would play James Bond 007, and the first of four Bond films that Guy Hamilton would direct. It is a hugely popular film in the Bond series, with the unforgettable lines: "Do you expect me to talk? No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die."
While the Bond franchise started with Dr. No, and continued with the hugely entertaining From Russia with Love, it didn't really hit its stride until the third movie in the series, the incomparable Goldfinger. This was the film that firmly established many of the James Bond hallmarks, such as the outlandish and colorful gadgets, the larger-than-life über-villains, and the impressive cars (this one featured the legendary Aston-Martin). Add to the mix the the already-present traditions, including the exotic locales, the suave leading man, and of course, the always electrifying beauty of the Bond girls. In many ways, this movie set the standard for all Bond films to follow, and many fans still consider this the pinnacle of the series. This film's spectacular opening credit sequence designed by Robert Brownjohn is the source of this wonderful image for this country-of-origin poster. Featuring a gold-dipped Shirley Eaton (Jill Masterson) superimposed over Bond (Sean Connery) with his weapon drawn and clutching Honor Blackman (Pussy Galore), this is a scare poster. This is one of the better examples of this poster in the market, folded-as-issued & totally un-restored.
