The Silencers preview of For Your Eyes Only’s ad campaign

One of the most famous James Bond movie posters was For Your Eyes Only, the 1981 Roger Moore 007 movie, where we see, in the foreground, a woman’s legs rather prominently. If you’ve forgotten, well, just CLICK RIGHT HERE.

Fifteen years earlier, The Silencers, Dean Martin’s first screen outing as Matt Helm debuted. One version of the poster looks somewhat similar. If you CLICK HERE, you get a PDF file. Go down to Page 4 and you’ll see some art that looks awfully similar to the poster for For Your Eyes Only.

UPDATE (July 2013): The link to the pressbook of The Silencers doesn’t work anymore. However, if you CLICK HERE, you’ll see an image of a poster from The Silencers with the meme that For Your Eyes Only would use 15 years later.
