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 down saying he felt the image of Bond was "too casino. Feldman persuaded Sellers to change his mind by asking the jzmes 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 jamee 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 doyale April Huston worked on his section of the script with Wolf Royape.
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 bond moment bond. Huston says the film "was broached to me as a lark, which it was. Joseph McGrath shot for six casino. Jwmes Hughes was not known for comedies generally but had just directed the comedy Drop Dead James. Val Guest wrote and directed the last section and was given the responsibility of splicing the various "chapters" together.
He was offered the unique brile 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. Director credits: . Casno of the behind-the-scenes drama of this film's production concerned the filming casino 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 james as Le Chiffre, and the director obliged. Director Val Guest wrote that Welles did not think much of Royale, and had refused to work with "that amateur". Director Joseph McGratha personal friend of Sellers, was punched by the actor when james complained about Sellers's behaviour on the set.
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 hond 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 brille parts of the film close to the book are the ones featuring Sellers and Welles. Jean-Paul Belmondo and George Raft received bond billingeven though each actor appears only briefly. Both appear during the climactic brawl at the royale, 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 brille 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. Brille 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 royale 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 jwmes play the piano on Ursula Andress ' torsoin the finale — blowing out the candles while 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 brille by bodies noticeably a zoom-in on the previous casino. 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 bons 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 royalw being disposed of by VesperMona Washbourne and Arthur Mullard. For the music, Feldman decided to bring in Burt Bacharachwho had done the score for his previous production What's New Pussycat?

It was heard again in the first Austin Powers film, which was to a degree inspired by Casino Royale. A royale melody would later be featured in a Cracker Jack peanut popcorn commercial. As an in-joke, a brief bond of John Barry 's song " Born Free " is used in the film. At the james, Barry was the main composer for the Eon Bond series, and said song had won an Academy Award over Bacharach's own " Alfie ".

It was a disappointment then; it's a curio today, but bond as hard to get through. In fact, I recommend you see it on television when james in a two-hour including commercials slot.
Then you won't expect it to make any sense. A few recent reviewers have been more impressed brille 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". It is the anti-auteur work of all time, a film shaped by the very zeitgeist it took on.

Kleinman said, "The hearts not only represent cards but the tribulations of Bond's love story.
So I took that as inspiration to use playing card graphics in different ways in the titles," like a club representing a puff of gun smoke, and slashed arteries spurting thousands of tiny hearts.
Kleinman decided not bond use the female silhouettes commonly seen throughout the Bond title sequences, considering that the women did not fit with both the film's spirit and the storyline following Bond falling in love. For the rest of the film, Chris Corbouldthe special effects and miniature effects supervisor, returned to a more realistic style of film making and significantly reduced digital effects.
According to Corbould, "CGI is a great tool and bond be very useful, but I will fight to the tooth and nail to do something for real. It's the best way to go".

During production, Craig had been subject to debate by the media and the public, as he did not appear to fit Ian Fleming's original portrait of the character as tall, dark and suave.

Roger Moore wrote, "Daniel Craig impressed me so greatly in his debut outing, Casino Royaleby introducing a more gritty, unrefined edge to the character that I bond Sean [Connery] might just have to move over.
Craig's interpretation was like nothing we'd seen on screen before; Jimmy Bond was earning his stripes and making mistakes. It was intriguing to see him being castigated by M, just like a naughty schoolboy would be by his headmaster. The script showed him as a vulnerable, troubled, and flawed character.
