Moonraker (1979) - (Roger Moore) Egyptian one-sheet

Moonraker (1979) - (Roger Moore) Egyptian one-sheet poster

This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian one-sheet poster loosely modeled after art by Dan Gouzee and printed by Hassan Mazhar Gasour's Arabic Cinema Printers Company in Cairo to promote the 1979 Lewis Gilbert film Moonraker based on a novel by Ian Fleming and a screenplay by Christopher Wood, starring Roger Moore as James Bond. The Arabic translation at the top of the poster says the title of the film is Satan Challenges the Mighty Men [al-shaytan yethada al-gababera], without reference to the Moon. In Egypt at least, James Bond films must have been seen as a guilty pleasure! Plot summary: Bond is sent into space to discover who is behind a space hijacking. He must deal with Hugo Drax, [Michael Lonsdale] the head of the company that created the hijacked spaceship, and the infamous metal-toothed character named Jaws [Richard Kiel]. He is assisted on the mission by Dr. Holly Goodhead [Lois Chiles].

Cast and crew: Ian Fleming, Dan Gouzee, Lewis Gilbert, Christopher Wood, Roger Moore, Louis Chiles, Michael Lonsdale, Richard Kiel, Corinne Clery, Bernard Lee, Geoffrey Keen, Desmond Llewelyn, Lois Maxwell, Toshiro Suga, Emily Bolton, Blanceh Ravalec, Irka Bochenko, Mike Marshall, Leila Shenna
