January 1963 - Sean Connery and his ‘Bond girl’ escorts on ‘The Spanish Steps’ in Rome.

In early 1963 Sean Connery embarked on a publicity tour to capitalize on the success of Dr. No in the UK before the film opened in various international territories. The publicity tour began in Europe, including Paris and Rome, where Connery was escorted by three glamourous ‘Bond girls’. Sean Connery later attended the US preview of Dr. No at the Astor Theatre in New York on March 7, 1963.

The Italian TV publicity footage recently premiered on YouTube has been unseen for 57 years.

Look out for further coverage of these Dr. No publicity events in 007 MAGAZINE Issue #60.
