As I write this a very large James Bond auction takes place at auction house Ewbank's in Surrey, England.
And one of the lots up for sale today was an amazing storyboard drawn by Syd Cain. The actual scene was the first scene from On her majesty's secret service where Bond follows Tracy down to the water and fights the bad guys and presents himself as bing Bond... James Bond
The story board is signed by both Syd Cain and George Lazenby.
I was hopping to be able to place some bids on this beautiful James Bond history but decided not to once the auction started. The final price became £1,900 + premium.
If you are a collector of any sorts you should focus on the really great things like this one and not just buy anything because it carries a brand of any sort. I spent my teens trying to buy anything that said 007. Those days are long gone now.
I am sure that most of you out there has something from today's auction. and you can see all the lots by clicking here.
Below is a picture of the complete storyboard.
