Bond, James Bond
Collecting James Bond autographs
This blog is about collecting James Bond autographs. I have a collection of over 6000, that have been collected in person, through the mail, through agents and through reputable auction houses. I also act as an agent for a number of Bond stars at signing shows
Oliver Tobias - the Bond that never was
This is a rare 6x4 BW photo signed by prolific actor Oliver Tobias. Oliver was screen-tested for the part of Bond in the early eighties (when there was debate over Roger Moore returning in the role).He was screen-tested on the same day as James Brolin at Pinewood Studios. I am led to believe that he was also up for consideration when Moore and Lazenby won the parts (but I have found no evidence to support this yet)Still - a nice new addition!
John Glen & Eunice Gayson
some new additions today....
John Glen 8x10 BW. John was director of severak bond movies, and has worked across three of the Bonds (Lazenby, Moore and Dalton) in either a director, assitant director or editor capacity.
He was director on the two Dalton movies (The lIving Daylights and Licence to Kill, and the last three Moore movies (A View to a Kill, Octopussy and For Your Eyes Only).
He was Editor on Moonraker, The Spy Who Loved me and On Her Majesty's Secret Service, and assistant director on these three movies too.
Eunice Gayson 8x10 BW - as Sylvia Trench in From Russia With Love
Denise Richards & Max Von Sydow
Two new additions to the collection....7x5 Denise Richards BW photo (Dr Christmas Jones in The Wolrd is Not Enough)8x6 Max Von Sydow BW (Blofeld in Never Say Never Again)Both of these items came from Antony Munt (Kharkaradon on e-bay). Antony is a good person to buy Bond items from - he often has quite rare items, and all are authentic. The only problem with him is that his favourite Bond was Timothy Dalton - OhWell....can't be all good!
Casino Royale Security Pass
A very special addition to the collection today....a security pass from the set of Casino Royale. It was given to me by a friend who is working on the movie.
Patrick MacNee, Julie Ege and Honor Blackman
Three new additions....Patrick Macnee 10x8 BW - as Tibbett in A View to a Kill7x5 BW of Julie Ege as the Scandinavian Girl in On Her Majesty's Secret Service10x8 of Honor Blackman - Goldfinger's Pussy Galore
