For Your Eyes Only: The best of the '50 Years of James Bond' sale

The Aston Martin DBS may be the top attraction at the upcoming auction marking the 50th anniversary of 007, but there are several other spy-related items going under the hammer: for instance, a set of original 'Thunderball' film posters.

And Lot 4 is definitely one to keep an eye on: a complete set of four original U.S. cinema door panel posters, featuring Bond Girls Dominique ‘Domino’ Derval (Claudine Auger), Paula Caplan (Martine Beswicke) and Patricia Fearing (Molly Petersall) with Sean Connery as 007.

The eye-catching, linen-backed banners from the 1965 box-office hit ‘Thunderball’ are all un-folded. Naturally, the striking images are expected to draw a lot of attention - especially from those Bond enthusiasts who share their hero’s appreciation for the female form...

Imagine relaxing with a (shaken, not stirred) Martini while admiring these beautiful film posters on your wall. If that’s not the perfect way to celebrate the anniversary of the most successful spy of the 20th century, then what is?

If you want the Bond girls to be yours, be prepare to start bidding online on 28 September.
