The script was written seven years before Never Say Never Again
A screenplay for a James Bond film that was never made has been sold at auction in London for £46,850.
The script for Warhead, written by Sir Sean Connery, author Len Deighton and producer Kevin McClory, had been expected to fetch no more than £3,000.
In the 1976 script, Bond battles robot sharks attempting to plant a nuclear bomb in sewers underneath New York.
Legal battles stopped the film being made. Sir Sean eventually played 007 again in 1983's Never Say Never Again.
The lot, part of Christie's Pop Culture: Entertainment Memorabilia auction, also included a photo of Connery, McClory and Deighton working on the script in Ireland.
If made, the film would have featured such familiar Bond characters as Ernst Stavros Blofeld, Felix Leiter, Moneypenny, M and Q.
It would also have seen James Bond encounter beauties like Justine Lovesit and Fatima Blush - a character who eventually appeared in Never Say Never Again.
Other items in the sale included a fur-trimmed stole worn by Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe which sold for £42,050.
A collection of vintage photographs of the actress Marlene Dietrich also went for £27,361.
"Numerous lots far exceeded pre-sale expectations, demonstrating the continued appeal and durability of the pop culture market," said Christie's Katherine Williams.
