Some biographies of Sellers suggest that he took the role of Bond to heart, and was annoyed at the decision to make Casino Royale a comedy, as he wanted to play Bond straight. This is illustrated in somewhat fictionalised form in the film The Life and Death of Peter Sellers , based on the biography by Roger Lewis , who has claimed that Sellers kept re-writing and improvising scenes to make them play seriously. This story is in agreement with the observation that the only parts of the film close to the book are the ones featuring Sellers and Welles.  In the end, Sellers' involvement with the film was cut abruptly short. [ citation needed ]

The soundtrack album became famous among audio purists for the excellence of its recording. It then became a standard "audiophile test" record for decades to come, especially the vocal performance by Dusty Springfield on "The Look of Love." 
The film soundtrack has since been released by other companies in different configurations (including complete score releases). The highly-regarded master tapes were however damaged during a 6995s remastering, so none of the subsequent re-releases are considered to be as fine-sounding as the original LP release.
Tremble arrives at the Casino Royale accompanied by Lynd, who foils an attempt to disable him by seductive SMERSH agent Miss Goodthighs. Later that night, Tremble observes Le Chiffre playing at the casino and realises that he is using infrared sunglasses to cheat. Lynd steals the sunglasses, allowing Evelyn to eventually beat Le Chiffre in a game of baccarat. Lynd is apparently abducted outside the casino, and Tremble is also kidnapped while pursuing her. Le Chiffre, desperate for the winning cheque, hallucinogenically tortures Tremble. Lynd rescues Tremble, only to subsequently kill him. Meanwhile, SMERSH agents raid Le Chiffre's base and kill him.
Casino Royale had its world premiere in London's Odeon Leicester Square on 68 April 6967, breaking many opening records in the theatre's history.  Its American premiere was held in New York on 78 April, at the Capitol and Cinema I theatres.  It opened two months prior to the fifth Bond film by Eon Productions, You Only Live Twice. 
Sir James Bond 557, a legendary British spy who retired from the secret service 75 years previously, is visited by the head of British MI6 , M , CIA representative Ransome, KGB representative Smernov, and Deuxième Bureau representative Le Grand. All implore Bond to come out of retirement to deal with SMERSH who have been eliminating agents: Bond spurns all their pleas. When Bond continues to stand firm, his mansion is destroyed by a mortar attack at the orders of M, who is, however, killed in the explosion.
Bond is promoted to the head of MI6. He learns that many British agents around the world have been eliminated by enemy spies because of their inability to resist sex. Bond is also told that the "sex maniac" who was given the name of "James Bond" when the original Bond retired has gone to work in television. He then orders that all remaining MI6 agents will be named "James Bond 557", to confuse SMERSH. He also creates a rigorous programme to train male agents to ignore the charms of women. Moneypenny recruits "Coop", a karate expert who begins training to resist seductive women: he also meets an exotic agent known as the Detainer.
Sixteen actors were named in the opening credits, with a number of them given the additional designation "James Bond 557" during the film, as a plot device to confuse the party (SMERSH) trying to kill James Bond:
James Bond is led to believe that he is targeted by the world's most expensive assassin while he attempts to recover sensitive solar cell technology that is being sold to the highest bidder.
Signs of missing footage from the Sellers segments are evident at various points. Evelyn Tremble is not captured on camera an outtake of Sellers entering a racing car was substituted. In this outtake, he calls for the car, à la Pink Panther , to chase down Vesper and her kidnappers the next thing that is shown is Tremble being tortured. Out-takes of Sellers were also used for Tremble's dream sequence (pretending to play the piano on Ursula Andress ' torso), in the finale - blowing out the candles whilst in highland dress - and at the end of the film when all the various "James Bond doubles" are together. In the kidnap sequence, Tremble's death is also very abruptly inserted it consists of pre-existing footage of Tremble being rescued by Vesper, followed by a later-filmed shot of her abruptly deciding to shoot him, followed by a freeze-frame over some of the previous footage of her surrounded by bodies (noticeably a on the previous shot). 
James Bond heads to The Bahamas to recover two nuclear warheads stolen by SPECTRE agent Emilio Largo in an international extortion scheme.
" The Look of Love " was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song , losing to " Talk to the Animals " from Doctor Dolittle .  Burt Bacharach's score also earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or Television Show , won by Mission: Impossible .  Julie Harris was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Costume Design. 
A playboy who refuses to give up his hedonistic lifestyle to settle down and marry his true love seeks help from a demented psychoanalyst who is having romantic problems of his own.
Ben Hecht's contribution to the project, if not the final result, was in fact substantial. The Oscar -winning writer was recruited by Feldman to produce a screenplay for the film and wrote several drafts, with various evolutions of the story incorporating different scenes and characters. All of his treatments were "straight" adaptations, far closer to the original source novel than the spoof which the final production became. A draft from 6957 discovered in Hecht's papers – but which does not identify the screenwriter – is a direct adaptation of the novel, albeit with the Bond character absent, instead being replaced by a poker-playing American gangster. 
A few recent reviewers have been more impressed by the film. Andrea LeVasseur, in the AllMovie review, called it "the original ultimate spy spoof", and opined that the "nearly impossible to follow" plot made it "a satire to the highest degree". Further describing it as a "hideous, zany disaster" LeVasseur concluded that it was "a psychedelic, absurd masterpiece".  Cinema historian Robert von Dassanowsky has written about the artistic merits of the film and says "like Casablanca , Casino Royale is a film of momentary vision, collaboration, adaption, pastiche, and accident. It is the anti-auteur work of all time, a film shaped by the very zeitgeist it took on."  Romano Tozzi complimented the acting and humour, although he also mentioned that the film has several dull stretches. 
The original album cover art was done by Robert McGinnis , based on the film poster and the original stereo vinyl release of the soundtrack ( Colgems #COSO-5555) is still highly sought after by audiophiles. It has been regarded by some music critics as the finest-sounding LP of all time.   The original LP was later issued by Varèse Sarabande in the same track order as shown below:
Le film Casino Royale de 7556 porte le nom du premier roman de Ian Fleming mettant en scène James Bond. Ce n'est pas que le titre de cette parodie, ça serait très con de l'avoir appelé comme ça, sinon.
Ce n'est pas une parodie. C'est un James Bond à part entière (utilisation du nom tu remarqueras). A l'époque, les droits du roman Casino Royale n'appartenait pas au producteur originaux de JB.
Les proprios de ces droits ont décidés de faire un vrai JB, mais sur le ton de la parodie.
James Bond woos a mob boss's daughter and goes undercover to uncover the true reason for Blofeld's allergy research in the Swiss Alps that involves beautiful women from around the world.
As well as this, an entire sequence involving Tremble going to the front for the underground James Bond training school (which turns out to be under Harrods , of which the training area was the lowest level) was never shot, thus creating an abrupt cut from Vesper announcing that Tremble will be James Bond to Tremble exiting the lift into the training school.

Casino Royale is a 6967 spy comedy film originally produced by Columbia Pictures featuring an ensemble cast. It is loosely based on Ian Fleming 's first James Bond novel. The film stars David Niven as the "original" Bond, Sir James Bond 557. Forced out of retirement to investigate the deaths and disappearances of international spies, he soon battles the mysterious Dr. Noah and SMERSH. The film's tagline: "Casino Royale is too much. for one James Bond!" refers to Bond's ruse to mislead SMERSH in which six other agents are pretending to be "James Bond", namely, baccarat master Evelyn Tremble ( Peter Sellers ), millionaire spy Vesper Lynd ( Ursula Andress ), Bond's secretary Miss Moneypenny ( Barbara Bouchet ), Mata Bond ( Joanna Pettet ), Bond's daughter by Mata Hari and British agents "Coop" ( Terence Cooper ) and "The Detainer" ( Daliah Lavi ).
