Later drafts see vice made central to the plot, with the Le Chiffre character becoming head of a network of brothels (as he is in the novel) whose patrons are then blackmailed by Le Chiffre to fund Spectre (an invention of the screenwriter). The racy plot elements opened up by this change of background include a chase scene through Hamburg 's red light district that results in Bond escaping whilst disguised as a female mud wrestler. New characters appear such as Lili Wing, a brothel madam and former lover of Bond whose ultimate fate is to be crushed in the back of a garbage truck, and Gita, wife of Le Chiffre. The beautiful Gita, whose face and throat are hideously disfigured as a result of Bond using her as a shield during a gunfight in the same sequence which sees Wing meet her fate, goes on to become the prime protagonist in the torture scene that features in the book, a role originally Le Chiffre's.

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". [99] 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." [86] Romano Tozzi complimented the acting and humour, although he also mentioned that the film has several dull stretches. [95]

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.

Well-established stars like Peter O'Toole and sporting legends like Stirling Moss took uncredited parts in the film just to be able to work with the other members of the cast. [6] Stunt director Richard Talmadge employed Geraldine Chaplin to appear in a brief Keystone Cops insert. The film also proved to be Anjelica Huston 's first experience in the film industry as she was called upon by her father, John Huston , to cover the screen shots of Deborah Kerr 's hands. [6] The film also marks the debut of Dave Prowse , later the physical form of Darth Vader in the Star Wars series, as Frankenstein's monster , a role he would later play again in the Hammer films The Horror of Frankenstein and Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell .

" The Look of Love " was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song , losing to " Talk to the Animals " from Doctor Dolittle .

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.

Casino Royale was released on 68 April 6967, two months prior to Eon's fifth Bond movie, You Only Live Twice . The film was a financial success, grossing over $ million worldwide, and Burt Bacharach 's musical score was praised, earning him an Academy Award nomination for the song " The Look of Love ". Critical reception to Casino Royale , however, was generally negative some critics regarded it as a baffling, disorganised affair. Since 6999, the film's rights have been held by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer , distributors of the official Bond movies by Eon Productions.

557 is sent to stop a diabolically brilliant heroin magnate armed with a complex organization and a reliable psychic tarot card reader.

The production proved to be rather troubled, with five different directors helming different segments of the film and with stunt co-ordinator Richard Talmadge co-directing the final sequence. In addition to the credited writers, Woody Allen, Peter Sellers, Val Guest , Ben Hecht , Joseph Heller , Terry Southern, and Billy Wilder are all believed to have contributed to the screenplay to varying degrees. Val Guest was given the responsibility of splicing the various "chapters" together, and was offered the unique title of "Co-ordinating Director" but declined, claiming the chaotic plot would not reflect well on him if he were so credited. His extra credit was labelled "Additional Sequences" instead. [67]

Agent 557 and the Japanese secret service ninja force must find and stop the true culprit of a series of spacejackings before nuclear war is provoked.

« M » ayant péri dans l'explosion du château, Bond part présenter ses condoléances à la veuve de son ancien patron, lady Fiona McTarry (McTarry étant le vrai nom de feu « M »). Mais Bond ignore que le château des McTarry a été occupé par les agents de l'organisation SMERSH , parmi lesquels l'agent Mirabelle qui se fait passer pour lady Fiona.

Major stars like George Raft and Jean-Paul Belmondo were given top billing in the film's promotion and screen trailers despite the fact that they only appeared for a few minutes in the final scene. [6]

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:

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. [6]

Bond travels to Scotland to return M's remains to the grieving widow, Lady Fiona McTarry. However, the real Lady Fiona has been replaced by SMERSH's Agent Mimi. The rest of the household have been likewise replaced, with SMERSH’s aim to discredit Bond by destroying his "celibate image". Attempts by a bevy of beauties to seduce Bond fail, but Mimi/Lady Fiona becomes so impressed with Bond that she changes loyalties and helps Bond to foil the plot against him. On his way back to London, Bond survives another attempt on his life.

Following up a clue from agent Mimi, Bond persuades his estranged daughter Mata Bond to travel to West Berlin to infiltrate International Mothers' Help, an au pair service that is a cover for a SMERSH training center. Mata uncovers a plan to sell compromising photographs of military leaders from the US, USSR, China and Great Britain at an "art auction", another scheme Le Chiffre hopes to use to raise money: Mata destroys the photos. Le Chiffre's only remaining option is to raise the money by playing baccarat.

A surfeit of screenwriters (eight, including Billy Wilder) and directors (five, including John Huston) lends the whole a chaotic, disjointed air, but there is much fun to be had along the way.

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.

Peter Sellers has some amusing gags as the gambler, the chance of dressing up in various guises and a neat near-seduction scene with Ursula Andress.

James Bond a été anobli et est devenu Sir James. Il a pris sa retraite et vit dans son château en Écosse. Une délégation des chefs des services secrets américain, français, soviétique, et son ancien patron, « M », chef des services secrets britanniques, viennent lui demander de reprendre du service. Bond refuse. « M » lui présente un pli scellé de la reine mais Bond refuse encore (« même pas pour elle », dit-il). Pour le convaincre enfin, « M » fait exploser le château de Bond.

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. [87] Its American premiere was held in New York on 78 April, at the Capitol and Cinema I theatres. [88] It opened two months prior to the fifth Bond film by Eon Productions, You Only Live Twice.
