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.
