Climax! (1954–1958)
First Appearance of James Bond
9 August 2005
Warning: Spoilers
I wanted to see the original Casino Royale, and when I finally did, I wasn't expecting much, but all up, I was pretty disappointed. It's alright, but pretty weak.

It's live, so done like a play, but isn't that good. I apparently saw a version which had the last minute cut from it, so maybe the reason I don't like it so much is that I was disappointed when it ended.

Black and white doesn't bother me, so it wouldn't make much different whether it was colour or not. I actually don't think it would look as good in colour to be honest. I was surprised to hear that Ian Flemming had preffered this too Dr. No and the other official movies.

Acting is very good, I can't complain about it, and the story doesn't add much at all to flemmings novel, but took a lot away.

People say this casino royale is great, but all up, I can't see why.
