Great movie! Personally, for me, it is an iconic movie. Perfectly describe that period of time. I really like films about guns and casino. I hoped that one day this movie will be re-captured based on new online casino rules nd with many fights and beautiful girls. I recommend that film for everyone!
_**Psychedelic secret agent satire with a superlative cast**_
A mysterious organization named SMERSH is killing off notable spies from top countries compelling James Bond to come out of retirement (David Niven). Peter Sellers plays a younger “James Bond” agent while Woody Allen is on hand as a diminutive “James Bond.” Orson Welles plays the lead heavy while William Holden and John Huston have small roles.
“Casino Royale” (1967) is notorious in cinema and generally loathed by critics & cinephiles, but it’s actually superior to contemporaneous spy satires like “In Like Flint” (1967) and “Fathom” (1967).
It was intentionally made with four different directors in mind for four separate segments, but ended up with six directors. There were originally 4 writers (if you include Ian Fleming’s book), but ended up with a total of 11. Welles and Sellers didn’t get along and refused to work together. It was one of the most expensive films of its day and cost more than any of the James Bond flicks up to that time.
Surprisingly, it all sort of comes together for a madly amusing 60’s secret agent farce despite the problematic Sellers being fired before all of his scenes were shot. I suggest using the subtitles so you can make out all the witty verbiage and follow what’s happening.
The female cast is outstanding with Barbara Bouchet (Moneypenny) and Joanna Pettet (Mata Bond) leading the way, but also featuring Ursula Andress (Vesper Lynd), Jacqueline Bisset (Miss Goodthighs), Deborah Kerr (Lady Fiona) and several others, including Caroline Munro and Veronica Carlson in cameos.
The movie is overlong at 2 hours, 11 minutes. It was shot in Ireland, Scotland and England.
An Unfolding Moment
It helps if you’re able to live in Kierkegaard’s unfolding moment if you want to enjoy this movie. Or in Fritz Perl’s “here and now”, to switch hoaxes in midstream.
It’s pointless to compare “Casino Royale” to any of the other “straight” Bond films. There is no “plot” worthy of the name. The five disparate directors saw to that, to the extent that the writers didn’t. It’s a succession of gags, puns, and visual effects taking place in spectacularly designed settings, spoofs of German expressionism, psychedelic imagery, and all that. Some of the gags miss the mark. A British soldier who has been practicing karate chops on wooden boards comes to a stiff attention when his superior approaches and snaps a quivering Brit-style salute, knocking himself out with his own hand. Ha ha.
Such silliness abounds and at times the movie drags a bit, but there is always another joke around the corner. Orson Welles, with his fat cigar at the card table, performing magic tricks with flags and scarves amid flashing lights while everyone whistles and applauds. Peter Sellers trying on different costumes for Ursula Andress, including one of a gruff old general, “There’s nothing wrong with the British Ahmy — that a damned good swim won’t cure.”
You really can’t look for logic in all of this. Listen to the score and watch the performers squeeze the most possible laughs out of their situations. Too bad the movie loses steam at the end so that what should be a climactic pulling together of all the accumulated lines of narrative and jokes is, instead, just plain silly — clapping seals, parachuting Indians. Ridiculous, but not funny. Writers who have trouble ending absurd movies like this seem to think that a few minutes of chaotic slapstick will serve. “What’s New, Pussycat” had the same problem, with people running frantically from room to room in a hotel, a Feydeau farce without laughs. “Sex and the Single Girl” thrust everybody into vehicles and sent them racing down a California freeway with nothing to say. Just about all of “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” was an attempt to substitute destruction and speed for wit.
I saw this movie when it was released and laughed from beginning to end. I don’t find it quite so funny now, (I don’t find ANYTHING quite so funny anymore) but I watch it when I can. It’s an opportunity to live in the unfolding moment.
