MOONRAKER 24-Sheet MOVIE POSTER BILLBOARD? 007 JAMES BOND SCIENCE FICTION
THE ONLY SCIENCE FICTION BOND FILM! NO 007 COLLECTION IS COMPLETE WITHOUT THIS! Here’s a BONA FIDE ORIGINAL 1979 NSS (National Screen Service) issued James Bond “MOONRAKER” 24-sheet Billboard Movie Poster! This amazing poster was made to advertise the now legendary James Bond Science Fiction classic in its first-run to eager 007 patrons back in 1979, over 40 years ago – when Jimmy Carter was still president. This poster is THE only James foray into the science fiction realm. I think the success of Star Wars had something to do with it, not to mention Jaws. This is a stellar lithograph on an important 1970’s film offered at an affordable price. The poster measures just under 9-feet by 20-feet! Needless to say, they pasted most of the original 24-sheet posters up to boards, and so almost all of them got destroyed by exhibiting them. Happily, this one example survived. It’s considered one of the rarest and most important Bond posters in existence! The poster was printed in about 12 sections, as was the case with almost all 24-sheet posters at the time. It can easily be mounted in one piece for display. I can advise the winner on where to go to have that done. I’ve had the original safely tucked away in deep storage for the past 40 years. The poster was manufactured folded by the National Screen Service. GONE WITH THE WIND! After 100 years of being the industry standard, paper billboards are now an artifact from the past. The film industry discontinued printing their 24-sheet and 30-sheet movie billboards on paper, just like that – overnight – in the early 2000s. Unlike poster paper, vinyl is NOT archival or stable! It degrades and breaks down over time. Vinyl is also exceeding difficult to store. Basically, vinyl poster stock is not viable for long-term collecting and procuring! I won’t touch it. Happily, this vintage Bond 24-sheet was made on glorious high-quality paper. It was right about 2007 (or thereabouts) that the paper movie billboard sadly came to an historic end in America. Nevertheless, the paper billboard had enjoyed a full 100 years of prowess. It more than stood tall; it stood mighty, as a unique art form and an important part of our heritage. Life would look a whole lot different here in the United States if it weren’t for the creation of the billboard. There’s no question, billboards have literally changed the landscape of this country – from sea to shining sea. The best of them need to be preserved. This is one of the very best of them!
