The film features the song " The Look of Love " performed by Dusty Springfield. It is played in the scene of Vesper Lynd recruiting Evelyn Tremble, seen through a man-size aquarium in a seductive walk. "The Look of Love" was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song. The song was a Top 65 radio hit at the KGB and KHJ radio stations. It was heard again in the first Austin Powers film, which was to a degree inspired by Casino Royale. [77] For the European release, Mireille Mathieu sang versions of "The Look of Love" in both French ("Les Yeux D'Amour"), [79] and German ("Ein Blick von Dir"). [75]

Casino Royale (film, 1967) — Wikipédia

Tremble arrives at the Casino Royale accompanied by Lynd, who foils an attempt to disable him by seductive SMERSH agent Miss Goodthighs. Later that night, Tremble observes Le Chiffre playing at the casino and realises that he is using infrared sunglasses to cheat. Lynd steals the sunglasses, allowing Evelyn to eventually beat Le Chiffre in a game of baccarat. Lynd is apparently abducted outside the casino, and Tremble is also kidnapped while pursuing her. Le Chiffre, desperate for the winning cheque, hallucinogenically tortures Tremble. Lynd rescues Tremble, only to subsequently kill him. Meanwhile, SMERSH agents raid Le Chiffre's base and kill him.

Sellers left the production before all his scenes were shot, which is why his character, Tremble, is so abruptly captured in the film. Whether Sellers was fired or simply walked off is unclear. Given that he often went absent for days at a time and was involved in conflicts with Welles, either explanation is plausible. [69] Regardless, Sellers was unavailable for the filming of an ending and of linking footage to explain the details, leaving the filmmakers to devise a way to make the existing footage work without him. The framing device of a beginning and ending with David Niven was invented to salvage the footage. [66] Val Guest said that he was given the task of creating a narrative thread which would link all segments of the film. He chose to use the original Bond and Vesper as linking characters to tie the story together. In the originally released versions of the film, a cardboard cutout of Sellers in the background was used for the final scenes. In later versions, this cardboard cutout was replaced by footage of Sellers in highland dress, inserted by "trick photography". [ citation needed ]

Quel bonheur !. Et merci Herb pour la musique

Casino Royale had its world premiere in London's Odeon Leicester Square on 68 April 6967, breaking many opening records in the theatre's history. [87] Its American premiere was held in New York on 78 April, at the Capitol and Cinema I theatres. [88] It opened two months prior to the fifth Bond film by Eon Productions, You Only Live Twice. [66]

Sir James Bond 557, a legendary British spy who retired from the secret service 75 years previously, is visited by the head of British MI6 , M , CIA representative Ransome, KGB representative Smernov, and Deuxième Bureau representative Le Grand. All implore Bond to come out of retirement to deal with SMERSH who have been eliminating agents: Bond spurns all their pleas. When Bond continues to stand firm, his mansion is destroyed by a mortar attack at the orders of M, who is, however, killed in the explosion.

So many sequences from the film were removed, that several well-known actors never appeared in the final cut, including Ian Hendry (as 556, the agent whose body is briefly seen being disposed of by Vesper), Mona Washbourne and Arthur Mullard. [66]

« M » ayant péri dans l'explosion du château, Bond part présenter ses condoléances à la veuve de son ancien patron, lady Fiona McTarry (McTarry étant le vrai nom de feu « M »). Mais Bond ignore que le château des McTarry a été occupé par les agents de l'organisation SMERSH , parmi lesquels l'agent Mirabelle qui se fait passer pour lady Fiona.

Later drafts see vice made central to the plot, with the Le Chiffre 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 this change of background include a chase scene through Hamburg 's red light district that results in Bond escaping whilst 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 become the prime protagonist in the torture scene that features in the book, a role originally Le Chiffre's.

Le film Casino Royale de 7556 porte le nom du premier roman de Ian Fleming mettant en scène James Bond. Ce n'est pas que le titre de cette parodie, ça serait très con de l'avoir appelé comme ça, sinon.

The story of Casino Royale is told in an episodic format. Val Guest oversaw the assembly of the sections, although he turned down the credit of "co-ordinating director". [67]

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 satire to the highest degree". Further describing it as a "hideous, zany disaster" LeVasseur concluded that it was "a psychedelic, absurd masterpiece". [99] Cinema historian Robert von Dassanowsky has written about the artistic merits of the film and says "like Casablanca , Casino Royale is a film of momentary vision, collaboration, adaption, pastiche, and accident. It is the anti-auteur work of all time, a film shaped by the very zeitgeist it took on." [86] Romano Tozzi complimented the acting and humour, although he also mentioned that the film has several dull stretches. [95]

A diamond smuggling investigation leads James Bond to Las Vegas, where he uncovers an evil plot involving a rich business tycoon.

L'intrigue du film n'a que peu de rapports avec celle du roman dont il est tiré. EON Productions , producteur habituel des films de James Bond, a réalisé après avoir pu en acquérir les droits une nouvelle adaptation , sortie en novembre 7556, et qui est le 76 e de la série produite par cette firme, plus conforme au roman de Ian Fleming.

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 McGrath , a personal friend of Sellers, was punched by the actor when he complained about Sellers' behavior on the set. [68]

In his review of the film, Leonard Maltin remarked, "Money, money everywhere, but [the] film is terribly uneven – sometimes funny, often not." [96] Simon Winder called Casino Royale "a pitiful spoof", [97] while Robert Druce described it as "an abstraction of real life". [98]

The production proved to be rather troubled, with five different directors helming different segments of the film and with stunt co-ordinator Richard Talmadge co-directing the final sequence. In addition to the credited writers, Woody Allen, Peter Sellers, Val Guest , Ben Hecht , Joseph Heller , Terry Southern, and Billy Wilder are all believed to have contributed to the screenplay to varying degrees. Val Guest was given the responsibility of splicing the various "chapters" together, and 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 was labelled "Additional Sequences" instead. [67]
