Casino Royale

casino_royale_xlgRelease Date: 13 April 1967

Released at the height of the swinging sixties, Casino Royale is a parody of the popular James Bond series. Clocking in at 2 hours, 11 minutes, it’s far too long. Fine performances and high production values can’t save the film from its meandering, incoherent nature.

David Niven plays the original James Bond, although the film finds it’s large supporting cast all pretending to be James Bond (from Peter Sellers to Ursula Andress). Woody Allen plays Jimmy Bond, the original James Bond’s nephew. Did that sound confusing? That’s because it is.
