I was surfing Amazon and came across a group called BIAS who has an album out called Time and Tide....
And I gave a double take at the album cover....

Yes, it's from LALD and around here differences like that give rise to huge rows ! "Whatever" is enough to start a 9 page thread ! At any rate -- she's looking good, considering 1973 was 43 years ago...(referring only to the year of release, not the release date, or the date the poster was first displayed...yes ! this is a detail-oriented group and I'm right there in it !) I still like that style of poster, very much. I'd like to see some "retro-Posters" for the next Bond film. They can "adjunct" posters, not the main ones. At any rate, this style of artwork ran, if memory serves correctly from TB through TMWTGG. TSWlM was similar in content and composition but different in the artwork. MR went back to it. FYEO went with the photographic style. AVTAK went back to it. From there on out, though, I don't this style was used since.

Actually, I think the last "great" Bond poster was The Living Daylights UK Quad. After that they used a lot of photography. Even the TWINE poster, despite trying to accomplish the style of the earlier posters, used photos instead of artwork.

And then they went back to photo collages:
And this was still way better than the U.S. One Sheet they came up with.

Or LALD - whatever.
Yes, it's from LALD...
Of course, how silly of me.
Title edited accordingly.

My favorite Bond film poster of all time! Love to see the homage.

Homage maybe, but more likely a copyright infringement as well.

Yes, well, that of course, but one that only a select handful of nerds (us) would pick up on.
