After the death of M, Sir James Bond is called back out of retirement to stop SMERSH. In order to trick SMERSH and Le Chiffre, Bond thinks up the ultimate plan. That every agent will be named James Bond. One of the Bonds, whose real name is Evelyn Tremble is sent to take on Le Chiffre in a game of baccarat, but all the Bonds get more than they can handle, especially when the ultimate villain turns out to be Bonds nephew, Jimmy Bond. Written by simon Sir James Bond, a spy from the old school (a good spy is a pure spy) is called back to service by the death of “M” and the imminent collapse of civilization. The opposition tries to compromise him, but even as nubile young agents are thrown at him, he remains above it all. Going beyond parody to sillyness, every agent is renamed James Bond, 007 to confuse the enemy, including Woody Allen who plays, Little Jimmy Bond. Written by John Vogel The freewheeling farce begins when aging Sir James Bond is persuaded to rejoin Her Majesty’s Secret Service and head an operation to smash SMERSH. His mission? Topple Le Chiffre, whose baccarat winnings support the evil organization. Before you can say “double-oh-cross,” enticing Vesper Lynd recruits baccarat ace Evelyn Tremble to impersonate the suave super-sleuth and confront the villain. Adding to the mayhem is Sir James’ neurotic nephew, Jimmy Bond, a SMERSH defector. Written by Robert Lynch Sir James Bond is enjoying his retirement when four international agents press him into service again in hopes of smashing SMERSH and Topple LeChiffre at the baccarat tables. Bond is taken in by Agent Mimi (alias Lady Fiona McTarry) who immediately falls in love with him. Bond’s illegitimate daughter, Mata Bond, whose mother was the late Mata Hari, is going to help out. The current agent using the Bond name, Cooper, has his hands full, despite his assistance by beautiful secretary, Moneypenny. 007’s nephew Jimmy Bond is supposedly incompetent. Bond, hoping to clear his name from its current low repute, hires Evelyn Tremble to meet LeChiffre at the gambling tables at Casino Royale. The world’s richest agent, Vesper Lynd, helps convince Tremble to masquerade as 007.

Film Review

I'll be honest, the first time I watched it was for a truly bizarre reason (I heard a rumor the song "The happening" by Diana Ross and the supremes was played somewhere in the film, I watched it the first 2 times looking for this song) But then I grew an appreciation for the film, it is truly brilliant satire performed by an all star cast, in a lot of ways I like it better then the Daniel Craig Verison. Given the title is kind of deceptive as Casino Royale as the novel is only a portion of what this film covers. Both Peter Sellers and David Niven both deliver as bond (Peter Sellers as the bond based on the one in the book, albeit it a little less tough and a lot more silly). Sellers played well off of Welles and there exchange was memorable. The film was a tad hard to follow, but after you watch it about the third time it does actually make sense, yes it's weird at times, with such events as bond being chased by an exploding milk truck, a guy on horse kidnapping Bo…

Yes it's a mess but still as a piece of druggy late 60's notalgia Casino Royale can't be beat. And many of the scenes play very well. Woody Allen is hilarious in, I believe, his second film. The Orson Welles magic trick is fun to watch. Deborah Kerr does a very funny (and rare) comic turn . Also she looks fantastic. Ursula Andress , sexy as hell. Perhaps the one actor who is truly wasted is Peter Sellers as this is one of the few movies that he isn't funny in. Add to all this you have Bacharach's fantastic score and Dusty Springfield's smoldering version of Look of Love. It's no masterpiece but Casino Royale is a lot of fun. A good companion on a double bill with What's New Pussycat.

I'd avoided this movie for years assuming it was one of those bloated '60s comedies that aimed for madcap parody but ballsed it up completely (too many of those to mention). I'd seen a bit of the ending with Woody Allen larking about and that seemed to fit my assumption. I couldn't have been more wrong. This may have used a hodgepodge of writers and directors but somehow the end result is a spot-on satire attacking how far a gadget- heavy sex-crazed Bond had strayed from Fleming's ideal. It's of the messy but intelligent school of satire, akin Peter Cook and Dudley Moore's Bedazzled and Russ Meyer and Roger Ebert's Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. Someone else here rightly mentions the 1966 Batman movie. However what sets it apart from all of these is the quality of art direction, design, acting and music. Members of the cast who are in fleetingly still seem to fit right in, accents are hilarious and some performances are absolutely superb – name…
