Cassino Royale - 'The Funny One'
- Walt Dz
Great cast, great music, laughs galore. The first Cassino Royale! Everytime it looks like it'll be aired (according to the movie synopsys that is usualy written for the 'original', incorrectly), it's turns out to be the new and 'serious' Bond movie instead (which, don't get me wrong, is a really great movie.). But... it sure isn't the laughs I get from Peter Selllers. Please, dust it off & air it soon!!
Cool, Slick And Very Funny Bond Parody
- Bruce Reber
"Casino Royale" (1967) is an all-star parody of the James Bond 007 films just at the height of their popularity (all starring Sean Connery, who forever will be the best actor ever to play 007). David Niven, Peter Sellers, Deborah Kerr, Woody Allen, Ursula Andress (who played the role of Honeychild Ryder in the very first Bond film "Dr. No" (1962), and in cameos William Holden, John Huston, George Raft and many others star in one of the most hilarious films of the 60's. The swinging music score by Burt Bacharach and Hal David adds to the atmosphere of "Casino Royale", which plays every single aspect of the entire spy film genre for big laughs. I've heard that this was supposed to be one of the films in the original Bond series, but I don't know if it's true. Of course it was remade in 2006 with Daniel Craig as 007, only this time it was totally legitimate. I have the DVD of the original "Casino Royale", and watch it when I need some good laughs. After all, seven 007s are better than one! Have no fear, Bond is here!
I could not even finish watching it
- Mr D
What a dreadful mismash of a movie. What a waste of the talents of the great Peter Sellers and David Niven. The writers had no idea how to end the thing, and the story, already a parody of spy movies, became a parody of itself. The ridiculous 1960's music is so loud it makes it difficult to hear the dialogue at times. One star - not recommended.
