I don't know if this is simply Criterion Collection's de novo cover image, or if it was excerpted from the film itself. If the latter, it seems Bond's influence started early insofar as Charade was released in 1963.

CHARADE's title sequence and poster were designed by Maurice Binder, who had already worked on DR. NO.

Good thing he didn't strain himself coming up with something unique for Charade.

It looks like a DR.NO/VERTIGO/NORTH BY NORTHWEST hybrid, with a tint of Godard.

His storm effect for The Final Countdown is more or less a greenish Bond gunbarrel.

Well, there we go.

A bit of a one-trick pony, then. Ah well. That pony made him rich and somewhat famous.
