The For Your Eyes Only poster art is one of the most iconic images from 50 years of James Bond movies: a pair of shapely legs, seen from behind, framing Bond in action. (The British version of the poster showed movie scenes on either side of the legs, painted based on a photograph, while the U.S. version went with the original pictures.) The skimpy look was achieved when the photographer, Morgan Kane, asked the model to turn her bikini bottom around and wear it backwards. The bathing suit was so revealing that, in some places, the poster appeared with painted-on shorts covering her derriere.
And whose legs are they? According to a People magazine article from the time, three models claimed the thighs in question: Nancy Stafford, Jane Sumner and Joyce Bartle. (The actress in the movie, Carole Bouquet, did not pose.) It turned out that the arm holding a crossbow, which also appears in the ad, belongs to Sumner but the legs are Bartle’s.
