Time for some great stuff that was produced for promoting Thunderball! (to be updated)
some Lobby cards / Posters:
(click on the image to enlarge it to full size)
Pretty cool stuff!
Picture 1: You could get the idea that domino kills Vargas. But she never ever had a spear gun in her hand…and didn’t wear a wetsuit in the movie either 🙁
Picture 2: Pretty odd collection von images, but with the famous “Largo inspects his frogmen”- scene….sadly only a promotion shot.
Picture 3: Pretty cool underwater scenes, odd that the sub was concealed by Bond. But I guess they wanted Bond in the picture somewhere….
Picture 4: Wow, never seen so many sexy vintage suits in one poster…Great Stuff!
Picture 10 (agente 007): Wow, a nice collection of wetsuit pictures. If you look closely at the upper right image…Largo seems pretty excited to fight in his wetsuit 😉
VERY odd that they used that picture….they used to censor the hell out of the movie….but such a poster is ok?
“Behind the scenes”- pictures from the Vulcan bomber:
Great images that explain a lot about how they filmed that scene. But WHY would you use such pictures (at least the right one) as lobby cards to promote the movie? I wouldn’t show people such pictures to promote the movie. Don’t know about the left picture, but it seems that it wasn’t used as a promotion.
But it shows both stuntmen posing as pilots with their scuba gear which they used between the shots.
Pretty impressive display that was made by an artist (not official stuff).
Would like to have one…. 🙂
Some interesting Thunderball scuba toys:
Well, that sub model isn’t very accurate, but interesting.
And that “underwater struggle” (from 2010) display is very well made! Looks fantastic 🙂
Not very expensive (around 50 Euro) but you actually need to paint it yourself…. or buy a painted version for 220 Euro.
…artwork from my favorite scene! 🙂
Magazines that I can recommend (because I have them):
The magazines to the left are from 007 magazine. With some nice pictures of the movie that I haven’t seen anywhere else 😉
The magazines on the right picture are magazines from the ’60s. Not in the best shape, but great pictures (especially in the left one). Not so easy to get…
What do think about the pictures?
