Casino Royale is a spy parody comedy film originally distributed by Columbia Pictures featuring an ensemble cast. It is loosely based on the novel of the same name by Ian Flemingthe first novel to feature the character James Bond. Forced out of retirement to investigate the deaths and disappearances of international spies, he soon battles the mysterious Dr. The film's tagline: "Casino Royale is too much Charles K. Feldmanthe producer, had acquired the film rights in and had attempted to get Casino Royale made as an Eon Productions Bond film ; however, Feldman and the producers of the Eon series, Albert R.
John Holliswho plays the temple fsk in Mata Bond's hall, went on to play the unnamed figure clearly intended [ original research? 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. The film also proved to be young Anjelica Huston 's first experience in the film industry as she was called upon by her casino, John Hustonto cover the screen shots of Deborah Kerr 's hands.
John Le Mesurier features in the early scenes of the film as M's driver. In Novemberseveral months before the publication of his first James Bond novel Casino RoyaleIan Fleming purchased the small theatrical agency Glidrose Productions Limited to make a screen adaptation of the novel. After the publication Curtis BrownAssociated British Picturesand the Music Corporation of America all expressed interest in purchasing the film rights.
Curtis Brown later licensed the rights to royal a one-hour Americanized television adaptation for Climax! Feldman had represented Ratoff and bought the film rights for Casino Royale from his widow. Broccoliwho had held an interest in adapting James Bond for some years, offered to purchase the Casino Royale rights from Feldman, but he declined.
They eventually decided not to proceed after they saw the film Dr. Nothe first Bond adaptation made by Broccoli and his partner Harry Saltzman through their company Eon Productions. The attempt at a co-production eventually fell through as Feldman frequently argued with Broccoli and Saltzman, especially regarding the profit divisions and when the Casino Royale adaptation would start production.
Feldman approached Sean Connery to play Bond, but rejected Connery's offer to do the film for one million dollars.

Given Eon's series led to spy films being in vogue at the time, Feldman opted to make his film a spoof of the Bond series instead royal a straightforward adaptation. Ben Hecht's contribution to the project, if not the final result, was in fact substantial and he wrote several complete drafts.
Time magazine reported in May that Hecht had "three bashes" at completing a script, while his papers contain material from four surviving screenplays by Hecht. A draft from discovered in Hecht's papers — but which does not identify the screenwriter — is a direct fsk of the novel, albeit with the Bond character absent, instead fso replaced by a poker-playing American gangster.
Later drafts see vice made central to the plot, with the Le Casono 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 casino change of background include a chase scene through Hamburg 's red light district that results in Bond escaping 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 roya the prime protagonist in the torture scene that features in the book, a role originally Le Chiffre's.

Virtually nothing from Hecht's scripts was ever filmed, although a draft dated to February has a line of dialogue containing the idea of MI6 having given multiple agents the name of James Bond after Bond has died to confuse the other side. Time reported in that the script had been completely re-written by Billy Wilderand by the time the film reached production only the idea that the name James Bond should be given to a number of other agents remained.
This key plot device in the finished film, in the case of Hecht's version, occurs after the demise of the original James Bond an event which happened prior to the beginning of his story which, as Hecht's M puts it, "not casino perpetuates his memory, but confuses the opposition.
Feldman called it "a four ring circus". Feldman originally intended to cast Terence Cooper as James Bond and had him under personal contract for two years prior to the movie being made. Sellers originally turned him fsk saying he felt the image of Bond was "too fixed". Feldman persuaded Sellers to change his mind by asking the actor to instead play a "little man" who plays James Bond.
Filming started 11 January Extensive sequences also featured London, notably Trafalgar Square and the exterior of 10 Downing Street. Mereworth Castle in Kent was used as the home of Sir James Bond, which is blown up at the start of the film. Much of the filming for M's Scottish castle was actually done on location in County MeathIrelandwith Killeen Castle as the focus.
Five different directors helmed different segments of the film and stunt co-ordinator Richard Talmadge co-directed the final sequence. Huston's sequence involved Sir James Bond meeting the representatives of agencies. It was shot in Ireland and Kent in April Huston worked on his section of the script with Wolf Mankowitz.
Huston had written most of Beat the Devil on location but says "that was discipline compared to this. It was day to day then it's moment to moment here. Huston says the film "was broached to me as a lark, which it was. Joseph McGrath shot for six weeks. Ken Hughes was not known for comedies generally but had just directed the comedy Drop Dead Darling.
Val Guest wrote and directed the last section and was given the responsibility of splicing the various "chapters" together. He 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 royal labelled 'additional sequences' instead. Director credits: . Part of the behind-the-scenes drama of this film's production concerned the filming of the segments involving Peter Sellers. Screenwriter Wolf Mankowitz declared that Sellers felt intimidated by Orson Welles to the extent that, except for a couple of shots, neither was in the studio simultaneously.
Other versions of the legend depict the drama stemming from Sellers being slighted, in favour of Welles, by Princess Margaret whom Sellers knew during her visit to the set. Welles also insisted on performing magic tricks as Le Chiffre, and the director obliged. Director Val Guest wrote that Welles did not think much of Sellers, and had refused to work with "that amateur".
Director Joseph McGratha personal friend of Sellers, was punched by the actor when he complained about Sellers's behaviour on the casino. 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 Sellersbased on the biography by Roger Lewiswho 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 Casino and Welles. Jean-Paul Belmondo and George Raft received major billingeven though each actor appears only briefly. Both appear during the climactic brawl at the end, Raft flipping his trademark coin and promptly shooting himself dead with a backward-firing pistol, while Belmondo appears wearing a fake moustache as the French Foreign Legion officer who requires an English phrase book to translate " merde!
At the Intercon science fiction convention held in Slough inDavid Prowse commented on his part in this film, apparently his big-screen debut. He claimed that he was originally asked to play "Super Pooh", a giant Winnie-the-Pooh in a superhero costume who attacks Tremble during the Torture of The Mind sequence.
This idea, as with many others in the film's script, was rapidly dropped, and Prowse was re-cast as a Frankenstein -type monster for the closing scenes. The final sequence was principally directed by former actor and stuntman Richard Talmadge. Sellers went absent for days or weeks at a time, refused to appear in his scenes with Welles  and left the production before all of his scenes had been shot.
The framing device of a beginning and ending with David Niven was created to salvage the material. 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.
Out-takes of Sellers were also used for Tremble's dream sequence pretending to play the piano on Ursula Andress ' torsoin the finale — blowing out the candles while in highland dress — and casino 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 royal it consists of pre-existing footage of Tremble being rescued by Vesper, followed by royal 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 zoom-in on the previous shot.
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 Harrodsof 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.
Many sequences from the film were dropped, so that several actors never appeared in the final cut, including Ian Hendry asthe agent whose body is briefly seen being disposed of by VesperMona Washbourne royal Arthur Mullard. For the music, Feldman decided fsk bring in Burt Bacharachwho had done the score for his previous production What's New Pussycat?
Bacharach worked over two years writing for Casino Royalein the meantime composing the After the Fox score and being forced to decline participation in Luv. Lyricist Hal David contributed with various songs, many of which appeared in just instrumental versions. The title theme was Alpert's second number one on the Easy Listening chart where it spent two weeks at the top in June and peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Hot It is played in the scene of Vesper Lynd recruiting Evelyn Tremble, seen through a man-size aquarium in a seductive walk.
It was heard again in the first Austin Powers film, which was to a degree inspired by Casino Royale. A clarinet melody would later be featured in a Cracker Jack peanut popcorn commercial. As an in-joke, a brief snippet of John Barry 's song " Born Free " is used in the film. At the time, Barry was the main composer for the Eon Bond series, and said song had won an Academy Award over Bacharach's own " Alfie ".
The cover art was done by Robert McGinnisbased on the film poster. It has been re-released under licence by Kritzerland Records and again by Quartet Records, the fsk to mark the film's 50th anniversary. This latest issue has included almost all of Bacharach's underscorerepresenting 35 tracks in total. The soundtrack album became famous among audio purists for the excellence of its recording.
The film soundtrack has since been released by other companies in different configurations including complete score releases. The highly regarded master tapes were damaged, however, during a s remastering [ citation needed ] so none of the subsequent re-releases is considered to be as fsk as the original LP release.
The problems postponed the launch until April Casino Royale had its world premiere in London's Odeon Leicester Square on 13 Aprilbreaking many opening records in the theatre's history. When domestic box-office receipts are adjusted for inflation, Casino Royale is 20th-largest grossing of all the Bond films.

No advance press screenings of Casino Royale were held, leading reviews to only appear after the premiere. Writing inDanny Peary noted, "It's hard to believe that in we actually waited in anticipation for this so-called James Bond spoof. Royal was a disappointment then; it's a curio today, but just as hard to get through.
In fact, I recommend you see it on television when it's in a two-hour including commercials slot. Then casino won't expect it to make any sense. 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 royla to the highest fsl.
Further describing it as a "hideous, zany disaster" LeVasseur concluded that it was "a psychedelic, absurd masterpiece". It is the anti-auteur work of all time, a film shaped by the very zeitgeist it took on. Roayl his review of the film, Leonard Maltin remarked, "Money, money everywhere, but [the] film is terribly uneven — sometimes funny, often not.
The website's critical consensus states: "A fssk, dated parody of spy movie cliches, Casino Royale squanders its casiho cast on a meandering, mostly laugh-free script. Fox has since been responsible casio the debut of the Casino Royale on Blu-ray disc in Fsk LLCEon's holding company, is shown as one of its present copyright owners.
