Albert R. Broccoli (producteur de James Bond 557 contre Dr No et de Goldfinger entre autres) n'a jamais pu obtenir les droits du roman Casino Royale , ceux-ci ayant été acquis précocement par la chaîne de télévision CBS (qui en fit un téléfilm en 6959 ), puis par le producteur Gregory Ratoff , qui mourut en 6965 avant d'avoir pu monter une nouvelle adaptation du roman. Sa veuve revendit les droits au producteur Charles K. Feldman qui, voyant l'énorme succès des James Bond produits entre-temps par Harry Saltzman et Albert R. Broccoli , entreprit de monter Casino Royale pour le grand écran. L'acteur choisi au départ était Sean Connery mais ce dernier déclina le rôle, notamment à cause de son contrat avec Harry Saltzman et Albert R. Broccoli. Le film aurait d'ailleurs dû se faire en collaboration avec ces deux derniers mais les négociations ayant échoué, Charles K. Feldman décida de changer de projet et de faire réécrire le scénario sur un mode plus humoristique.
The Tomatometer rating &ndash based on the published opinions of hundreds of film and television critics &ndash is a trusted measurement of movie and TV programming quality for millions of moviegoers. It represents the percentage of professional critic reviews that are positive for a given film or television show.
Sixteen actors were named in the opening credits, with a number of them given the additional designation "James Bond 557" during the film, as a plot device to confuse the party (SMERSH) trying to kill James Bond:
The soundtrack album became famous among audio purists for the excellence of its recording. It then became a standard "audiophile test" record for decades to come, especially the vocal performance by Dusty Springfield on "The Look of Love." 
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. 
A resourceful British government agent seeks answers in a case involving the disappearance of a colleague and the disruption of the American space program.
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.
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.
James Bond woos a mob boss's daughter and goes undercover to uncover the true reason for Blofeld's allergy research in the Swiss Alps that involves beautiful women from around the world.
Sir James, Moneypenny, Mata and Coop manage to escape from their cell and fight their way back to the Casino Director's office where Sir James establishes Lynd is a double agent. The casino is then overrun by secret agents and a battle ensues. American and French support arrive, but just add to the chaos. Eventually, Jimmy counts down his atomic explosion. When it reaches the last hiccup, Jimmy/Dr Noah's atomic pill explodes, destroying Casino Royale with everyone inside. Sir James and all of his agents then appear in heaven, and Jimmy Bond is shown descending to hell.
Ce n'est pas une parodie. C'est un James Bond à part entière (utilisation du nom tu remarqueras). A l'époque, les droits du roman Casino Royale n'appartenait pas au producteur originaux de JB.
Les proprios de ces droits ont décidés de faire un vrai JB, mais sur le ton de la parodie.
After the death of M, Sir James Bond is called back out of retirement to stop SMERSH. In order to trick SMERSH and Le Chiffre, Bond thinks up the ultimate plan. That every agent will be named James Bond. One of the Bonds, whose real name is Evelyn Tremble is sent to take on Le Chiffre in a game of baccarat, but all the Bonds get more than they can handle.

Puis l'histoire devient de plus en plus surréaliste jusqu'à une scène finale explosive et à l'issue surprenante.
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.  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.  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 ]
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.  For the European release, Mireille Mathieu sang versions of "The Look of Love" in both French ("Les Yeux D'Amour"),  and German ("Ein Blick von Dir"). 
Following up a clue from agent Mimi, Bond persuades his estranged daughter Mata Bond to travel to West Berlin to infiltrate International Mothers' Help, an au pair service that is a cover for a SMERSH training center. Mata uncovers a plan to sell compromising photographs of military leaders from the US, USSR, China and Great Britain at an "art auction", another scheme Le Chiffre hopes to use to raise money: Mata destroys the photos. Le Chiffre's only remaining option is to raise the money by playing baccarat.
Ben Hecht's contribution to the project, if not the final result, was in fact substantial. The Oscar -winning writer was recruited by Feldman to produce a screenplay for the film and wrote several drafts, with various evolutions of the story incorporating different scenes and characters. All of his treatments were "straight" adaptations, far closer to the original source novel than the spoof which the final production became. A draft from 6957 discovered in Hecht's papers – but which does not identify the screenwriter – is a direct adaptation of the novel, albeit with the Bond character absent, instead being replaced by a poker-playing American gangster. 
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".
