* [[Film/CasinoRoyale1967 The 1967 version]] was an unholy mess of a spoof, with no less than 8 Bonds (9 including Creator/SeanConnery, who does not appear but receives a ShoutOut) and almost as many directors. Logic is paid little heed in the pursuit of comedy. Notably, it includes Creator/DavidNiven as the one-and-only original Sir James Bond -- Niven was Fleming's first choice for the part before Connery made it his own -- as well as Ursula Andress's second appearance in a Bond movie, this time as both the Bond girl and James Bond. It also starred Creator/WoodyAllen as young Jimmy Bond (his "disappointing" nephew), Creator/PeterSellers as Evelyn Tremble a.k.a. James Bond, and Creator/OrsonWelles as Le Chiffre.

Fleming sold the rights to the novel separately from the rest of the [[Film/JamesBond main film series]], which is the reason that it took so long for [[Film/CasinoRoyale2006 a proper adaptation of it in 2006]]. Before that, there were two other adaptations:

* NearVillainVictory: Le Chiffre cleans Bond out at the end of Chapter 11. Bond has a minor HeroicBSOD, but is rescued by the timely intervention of Felix Leiter('s bosses' pocketbook).



* StockholmSyndrome: Discussed. Bond has spoken to enough torture survivors to know that becoming attached to his captors is a risk.

Added DiffLines:

* StealingFromTheTill: Why Le Chiffre wound up at the Casino Royale in the first place. It's even discussed in Bond's mission briefing, which notes that till-robbers commonly resort to gambling to cover their asses.

Added DiffLines:

* StressVomit: What Bond does after [[spoiler:his would-be assassins blow themselves up]]. This is perhaps ''the'' most jarring bit in the novel for those primarily familiar with the cinematic Bond; no [[BondOneLiner snarky quips]] here, folks.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassBookworm: In addition to his strong mathematical background, it's mentioned that Le Chiffre carries three razor-blades on his person and is skilled at fighting with them. Pity we never see these skills.

* CyanidePill: Mentioned in passing; it's how the only SMERSH operative (so far) captured by the West does himself in.
