Product Description


John Huston was only one of five directors on this 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 organized threat of SMERSH and pass on the secret-agent mantle to his idiot son (Woody Allen). An amazing cast (Orson Welles, Peter Sellers, Deborah Kerr, etc.) is wonderful to look at, but the film is not as funny as it should be, and the romping starts to look mannered after awhile. The musical score by Burt Bacharach, however, is a keeper. --Tom Keogh

Casino Royale (1967) arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.34:1 encode. The bit rate was actually quite high at AVC 36 MBPS on a BD-50 disc. Consider the age of this movie, the picture actually looks very smooth and film-like. Black levels are excellent, especially in all the scenes in the casino with all the gentlemen in their tuxedos, or the Berlin sequences, with its many dark interiors. Detail is generally quite good, but the image is somewhat soft, which maybe due to the original design of the photography. (4/5)


The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless track sounds terrific. The beautiful music of Burt Bacharach floats in the air and never intrudes into the action of the movie. I still own the original motion picture soundtrack vinyl album, which was considered as an audiophile collector's item in the past. Of course, listening to Dusty Springfield's rendition of The Look Of Love is also worth the price of admission. This song, by Burt Bacharach (music) and Hal David (lyrics) was nominated for an Oscar as Best Original Song, but lost to the song Talk To The Animals from the movie Doctor Dolittle. (4/5)


With gadgets, gaming and girls galore, this movie is a brilliant parody of - itself. The outstanding part of this movie is the casts, including David Niven, Peter Sellers, Ursula Andress, Joanna Pettet, Orson Welles, Woody Allen, Deborah Kerr, William Holden, Charles Boyer and John Huston.


It has a budget of $12 million, but grossed $41 million worldwide, which is considered outstanding at that time.

CASINO ROYALE [1967] [Blu-ray] [UK Release] CASINO ROYALE Is Too Much . . . For One James Bond!

With gadgets, gaming and girls galore, this camp classic is not only the coolest of the spy films, but it's also a brilliant parody of itself!

Will the real "James Bond" please stand up? When secret agency chief "M" [John Huston] is killed, James Bond [David Niven] is thrust out of spy retirement to help smash SMERSH, the band of hit men who are likely responsible. And to protect his real identity, Bond's name is given to numerous other agents, including Evelyn Tremble [Peter Sellers] and Bond's neurotic nephew, Jimmy [Woody Allen]. With five directors, a cast of Hollywood icons that also includes Ursula Andress, Charles Boyer, Peter O'Toole, Jacqueline Bisset and Orson Welles, a soundtrack by Burt Bacharach and a frisky, farcical script, Casino Royale is Bond. Psychedelic Bond.

FILM FACT: Burt Bacharach's musical score was praised, earning him an Academy Award® nomination for the song "The Look of Love" and was performed by Dusty Springfield.

Cast: Peter Sellers, Ursula Andress, David Niven, Orson Welles, Joanna Pettet, Daliah Lavi, Woody Allen, Deborah Kerr, William Holden, Charles Boyer, John Huston, Kurt Kasznar, George Raft, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Terence Cooper, Barbara Bouchet, Angela Scoular, Gabriella Licudi, Tracey Crisp, Elaine Taylor, Jacqueline Bisset, Alexandra Bastedo, Anna Quayle, Derek Nimmo, Ronnie Corbett, Colin Gordon, Bernard Cribbins, Tracy Reed, John Bluthal, Geoffrey Bayldon, John Wells, Duncan Macrae, Graham Stark, Chic Murray, Jonathan Routh, Richard Wattis, Vladek Sheybal, Percy Herbert, Penny Riley, Jeanne Roland, Jennifer Baker (uncredited), Susan Baker (uncredited), R.S.M.

Great movie! Sir James Bond played by David Niven is forced back into espionage after his hedonistic lifestyle is so rudely interrupted by a British army 81mm mortar team who proceeds to blow up his perfectly splendid castle. Bond prefers a life of luxury to the dangers of espionage but alas, it's back to the good old Walther PPK 7.65mm and the cloak and dagger for 007. As Dr. Michael Lim the Travelling Gourmet, I too appreciate the finer things in life. I think all fans of Bond do too. The music is remarkable. This is THE movie where that immortal and hauntingly seductive song, by Burt Bacharach, "The Look of Love" reaches deep into your libido and psyche, especially when you hear it for the very first time. My old friend, the late Derek Nimmo (of BBC's Just a Minute) fame is in this movie too as a would be Bond under the tutelage of Sir James himself. If you see the current Austin Powers movies you'll see where the scipt writers got many of their ideas from. Beautiful and seductively voluptuous women abound as in all 007 movies. In those days, men were men and women were not pale, anaemic anorexic skin and bone creatures but lovely, curvaceous and meaty damsels. Bring back the real women I say to Hollywood film makers! This spook spoof will put a smile on your lips and cheer you up no end. Certain scenes like when Sir James demonstrates how things should be done are really hilarious. Above all, the classic British ideal of stiff upper lip, always remain calm and unruffled no matter what, and carry on regardless...comes through all the antics, bombs, blondes and bullets. David Niven comes a very close second to Patrick Macnee (The Avengers) when it comes to playing cool, calm and collected English gentlemen. And so, what's next? As Austin Powers would say, "Yeah, Baby, Yeah!!!" By Dr. Michael Lim The Travelling Gourmet ENJOY!
