Bernie Casey Signed Felix Leiter 8x10

This great 8x10 of a gun wielding Felix Leiter in Never Say Never Again has been signed by the man who played the role Bernie Casey. The film is notable for depicting Leiter, Bond's CIA colleague, as an African-American, something which would not occur in the "official" series until Casino Royale in 2006. The name "Felix" comes from the middle name of Fleming's friend Ivor Bryce, while the name "Leiter" was the surname of Fleming's friend Marion Oates Leiter Charles, then wife of Thomas Leiter.

 

The film is not considered part of the canon of the Bond film franchise from EON Productions and United Artists, despite its currently being handled by the official film series distributor, MGM. MGM acquired the distribution rights in 1997 after their acquisition of Orion Pictures. The film also marks the culmination of a long legal battle between United Artists and Kevin McClory. Its release opposite the franchise Bond film Octopussy (starring Roger Moore) quickly led the media to dub the situation the "Battle of the Bonds."

 

Using an astounding array of weapons, Agent 007 has singlehandedly wiped out an army of Her Majesty's enemies. But when a lovely captive slips a knife into 007's ribs, the superspy's boss decides it's time his top agent sharpen his lethal edge. So James Bond is off to a health spa. However his "vacation" is cut short by Largo, a power-mad mastermind set on carrying out his plan for worldwide nuclear blackmail. On Largo's side, the murderous femme fatale Fatima Blush and vile SPECTRE chief Blofeld. But Bond does have an ally though, Largo's girlfriend, the willowy Domino, who falls for Bond.
