Der Spielfilm Casino Royale aus dem Jahr ist eine Parodie auf die bis dahin erschienenen James-Bond-Filme. Der Titel entspricht dem ersten. Casino Royale steht für: Casino Royale (Roman), erster Roman von Ian Fleming, Auftritt von James Bond (); Casino Royale (Monterrey), mexikanisches. James Bond Casino Royale (Originaltitel: Casino Royale) ist ein britisch-US -amerikanischer Agententhriller der Produktionsfirma Eon und der Film der.
The original intent was to produce a serious screen adaptation of Ian Fleming's first James Bond novel; however, talks broke down between "Casino Royale" producer Charles Feldman and producer Albert Broccoli who had already produced 4 incredibly successful James Bond movies starring Sean Connery.
Broccoli didn't want Feldman's vision for "Casino Royale" even associated with the already-lucrative film series.
So, almost in defiance of Broccoli, Feldman produced "Casino Royale" as a spoof, an off-the-wall mockery of James Bond movies, instead.
Thus, 's "Casino Royale" was born. There's no real way to describe this film except to say "madcap" and "slapstick" There are gigantic plotholes and continuity errors, making it appear that the various scenes were shot by several different directors.
In fact, that is the case While comic Peter Sellers gives a strangely low-key performance, the funniest scenes definitely go to comedy veteran David Niven, who is both debonair and absurd.
Longtime dramatic actress Deborah Kerr also lets down her hair and plays balls-out comedy like it was her first love. These scenes are nothing less than hilarious.
Again, Peter Sellers does not slam-dunk any comedy in this film, unfortunately there are no "Inspector Clouseau" opportunities for Sellers.
Sellers was also very intimidated and insulted by co-star Orson Welles, which created even more tension.
All of this friction contributed to Sellers abruptly quitting or being fired from "Casino Royale" about half-way through.
Warning you in advance, you WILL get lost in this movie because the story is disorganized and, let's just say it, crazy as hell.
But there's a reason why this film was nominated for an Academy Award, and that reason was the soundtrack, which introduced the wildly popular song "The Look of Love" by Burt Bacharach and Hal David.
Although it failed to win the Oscar for Best Song, it was covered by dozens of established recording artists for many years thereafter and was even inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in Forget about Peter Sellers.
This is not for every James Bond fan. It is a must for every David Niven fan. Without David Niven, this film would sink into the abyss of misfiring satires.
This is about as silly as one could conceive. It is a comedic tour de force for both David Niven and Deborah Kerr. David Niven is the 'original James Bond'.
Structurally, it's a mess. The best and most coherent part is at the beginning up to the point where Peter Sellers gets involved, then all of the scenes involving David Niven or his character's and Mata Hari's daughter, Mata Bond, played by Joanna Pettet.
Woody Allen makes his on screen film debut, but comes across as stiff and uncomfortable, even beyond the parameters of the role. Ursula Andress is convincing as the money obsessed Vesper Lynd.
By this point in her career, her English is quite good and she seems comfortable in front of the camera. Barbara Bouchet as Miss Moneypenny introduced as the original Moneypenny's daughter is excellent.
Orson Wells is a lot of fun as Le Chiffre, a baccarat player who does magic tricks, which apparently irritated Peter Sellers no end.
The character Cooper, played by Terence Cooper no relation? There are lots of others interesting performances scattered throughout the film; John Huston, for instance, is terrific as the ill-fated 'M'.
Fortunately, Peter Sellers walked off the picture before he completed his scenes. The downside of that is the fragmentation of the rest of the film.
This is a film that makes most sense to those of us who survived the s. Music is by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. He was enormously popular in the mid-ish s.
I think I still have a couple of his LPs somewhere. This is funnier if you have already seen the more contemporary 'Casino Royal'. If you see that film after this one, as I did, you will find it's weird how many parts they have in common.
Of course reality is changed to confuse the innocent. I like this movie. I find the whole premise of the movie great, a bird-flipping if you will.
The actors are good and the music is great. I know that many would not agree, but I find the ending to be immensely satisfying and funny. The absurdity of the movie is what makes it so great.
However, I can also understand how many would not find my assessment to be relevant to them or their tastes. See all reviews.

In Godzilla terms, Connery and Moore having given us the 'showa' Bond, Dalton and Brosnan the "Heisei" Bond, we now have the "Millenium" series James Bond - not a prequel nor even a 'reboot', but, really, an entirely new series about the same character.
It is probably too much to hope for, but maybe they can make the sequels just as good as this. As a genre film it never quite lifts above its genre; so normally I would only give it "nine stars" as a film.
However, as a film within its genre, it is top-of-the-line - so it gets a ten. Start your free trial. Find showtimes, watch trailers, browse photos, track your Watchlist and rate your favorite movies and TV shows on your phone or tablet!

Also, everything around the building that sunk is perfectly dry. You like married women It keeps things simple. I had so many chances to be happy, so many nice guys.
