Product description

Product Description

Five directors and an all-star cast spoof the James Bond films in this comedy, very loosely based on Ian Fleming's first Bond novel. Sir James Bond (David Niven) is about to retire, but is called into battle with the evil organisation S.M.E.R.S.H. after the assassination of 'M' (John Huston). Bond's bungling nephew Jimmy (Woody Allen) becomes involved, and chaos ensues when Bond calls in other 007s to assist (including Peter Sellers, Terence Cooper and Ursula Andress, who starred in the first genuine Bond outing, 'Dr No').

From Amazon.co.uk

John Huston was only one of five directors on Casino Royale, the expensive, all-star 1967 spoof of Ian Fleming's 007 lore. David Niven is the aging Sir James Bond, called out of retirement to take on the organised threat of SMERSH and pass on the secret-agent mantle to his idiot son (Woody Allen). The amazing cast (Orson Welles, Peter Sellers, Deborah Kerr and others) is wonderful to look at, but the film is not as funny as it should be, and the romping even starts to look mannered after a while. The musical score by Burt Bacharach, however, is a keeper. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

A parody of not only Bond films but on film itself, Casino Royale nods and bows to all sorts of the genre, from sci-fi to westerns and everything between.

Think of this over-budget, swinging '60s design overindulgence as a pre- Austin Powers and you're halfway there. Peter Sellers is more Pink Panther than Sean Connery. David Niven, more like the granddad from UNCLE.

It's seldom outright hilarious but rattles off gag after gag and silly stunt after, well, you know, by now. Add some pretty cool special effects - a spaceship taking off from Trafalgar Square - as well as many cameos as you'd care for. Female beauties who adorn the sets and then turn nasty. Ronnie Corbett as you've never seen him.

I watched this during a spell of wintry illness and it cheered me immensely.
Most of it is pure nonsense, but always in an interesting 'doesn't matter if you don't get it' sort of offbeat way. Yes, it's often crass, sexist and all the things that Bond was renowned for and ultimately criticised for and then some, on top.

The DVD looks good though and plays in widescreen nicely.

When I first saw this at age of 11 in 1967 I thought it was the funniest film ever! I don't think that now but it does have some wonderfully sly and camp humour in it as well as the slapstick sequences of varying degrees of success. This looks gorgeous projected from Blu-ray and the score by Burth Bacharach is a great asset. Very glad to have this.
