R.I.P. Margaret Nolan. You truly were a golden girl.
Another loss for those of us who loved that era.
Ya know, I’ve been obsessed with collecting all the 60s Bond posters and artwork of late. I used to prefer the full 27x40 size, but have compromised to lobby cards and 11x17" as well as A4, A5 sizes, etc. So in that way, my childhood crushes live on.
Are these all originals, or copies? I don’t understand the 11x17, A4 and A5 sizes as such?
What are they?
European sizes are such that two of one can fit into the other. So their aspect ratio is always 1.4142, the square root of 2. So A1 is about 24" by 33" and two of them fit into an A0 size, 48" by 66". The higher the number, the smaller the size. So A4 (googles … I always have to look this up) is about 8 by 11, A3 12" by 16" and A5 6"x8". Postcards are A6, about 4 inches by 6 inches.
Americans of course have their own system which has no rhyme or reason–8.5" by 11" for paper, lobby cards at 11 by 14, and 27" by 41" for movie posters, with most replicas going 24" by 36". It’s a pain to find the right sized frames!
Anyway, they’re all replicas. I have a few original movies posters, mostly Roger Moore and some Connery. Some would be worth a lot of money, but I framed them before learning that. Sadly, I don’t have the wall space to display them. Hence, the smaller replicas.

Moving all Sir Sean Connery discussion to this thread:
Farewell, Geoffrey Palmer. RIP, Admiral.
He would have made a superb M.
He would indeed.
Connery, now Trebek. We’ve lost another icon and hero. RIP Trebek. I hope he answers St Peter’s questions in the form of a question.
As a friend of mine remarked in jest: “With Connery gone, Trebek had nothing more to live for.”* Jeopardy won’t be the same without him. Rest in peace.
*A reference to some well-known “Celebrity Jeopardy” SNL skits.
I always imagined that the show “As Time Goes By” was the story of how Roebuck and M got it on.
RIP Alex Trebek. I’ve been watching him host Jeopardy! since I was a pre-verbal infant. It’s hard to imagine the show without him.
“You’ll rue the day you crossed me, Trebek!” He outlived Sir Sean by one week. RIP to both.
His work on As Time Goes By was fantastic. I had watched most of that series after TND with my wife of the time.
Philip Voss, the auctioneer in Octopussy, died a few days ago.
I raise this both as an RIP and also that I am now older than he was then, and Octopussy doesn’t seem so long ago. Ah well.
