The Spy Who Loved Me - James Bond Film Posters

A Very Subliminal Film Poster

The James Bond team had been together for fifteen years, and since Roger Moore had been playing a spy for that entire time as well, the entire production staff was seasoned and ready to really hit one out of the part. The poster for "The Spy Who Loved Me," however, did not quite match up with the iconic theme stong "Nobody Does it Better" sung by Carly Simon, or the fantastic stunt coordinated by Willy Bogner in which James Bond is seen to ski of fan actual cliff. Instead, we get a fairly pedestrian shot of Roger Moore with his latest Bond girl. If you wish, you can read all sorts of phallic and otherwise sexual connotations into the giant submarine ramming its way into the curiously triangular sea base, and on a subliminal level, the poster is a true work of art. On its face, however, the movie poster for "The Spy Who Loved Me" is boring and not up to the level of the rest of the production. Never fear, though, the series was right on the cusp of perking up big time.
