Tarot Cards at the Movies
LIVE AND LET DIE - TAROT DECK
US GAMES SYSTEMS Inc. , USA 1973
Tarot cards do occasionally show up in feature films; they featured rather prominently, in fact, in the James Bond flick Live and Let Die (1973). It's fun to see the cards on the big screen, but also dismaying to see that scriptwriters never bother consulting a tarot card reader, an obvious fact based on Hollywood's apparent belief that the Death card must mean "death" and the Hanged Man card must mean - you guessed it - a "hanged man."
Tarot of the Witches, Tarot cards with Booklette
The very popular "Tarot of the Witches" Deck and set, made popular by Jane Seymore in the 007 Movie "Live and Let Die" back in the early 70?s. This deck has remained popular to this day. It has not been jaded by the connection with the movie, only enhanced it would seem. Therefore it MUST, be a very usable deck

Comments: The notes packed with the cards identifies this deck as the one featured in the James Bond film, Live & Let Die. These are very modest witches - no sky-clad frolics for them. They are also 1980's witches with big, big shoulder pads. Unlike some witch/pagan decks, these cards do not reveal much about pagan ritual. This is a Marseilles-type deck, not only in the minor arkana cards, but in court cards & major arkana as well. Try as you might there are few if any overt stories on these cards, though some of the symbols may hint at more to those who know how to read them. The US Games catalog says the images are dreamlike fantasies in a surreal style & we agree.
Kaplan includes notes on how covens are structured: Five male/female couples, representing the ten pip (suit) cards, plus the high priestess (queen) & her consort, the knight. The final couple is a king as warlock & the page as a witch in training, though the notes are unclear if the training will result in a high priestess (in which case, her consort, the king, becomes a knight), or as a member of the pips, in which case the king becomes another pip. Or maybe she finds another consort. In either case, guys, this is not the patriarchy with which we're familiar.
