Casino Royale was a spy comedy released in 1967 and starring David Niven and Peter Sellers. It was created to be a satire of the James Bond films, which were immensely popular at the time. Despite being a comedy, the film was actually based on the novel of the same name by Ian Fleming. Unusually, it was directed by six people including Academy Award winner John Huston. The story of the film centered around Sir James Bond 007 (David Niven) who comes out of retirement to investigate the deaths of several international spies. He comes into conflict with a secret organization known as SMERSH, headed by a mysterious man named Le Chiffre (Orson Welles). Bond is assisted in his efforts by several other agents such as Evelyn Tremble (Peter Sellers), Vesper Lynd (Ursula Andress), Dr. Noah (Woody Allen) and Miss Moneypenny (Barbara Bouchet). Though it received mixed reviews upon its initial release, Casino Royale was a hugely successful film and is now regarded as a classic satire of the genre.
