->''"...a definitive example of what can happen when everybody working on a film goes simultaneously berserk."''
-->-- '''Creator/RogerEbert'''


[[TheOneWith The one]] that's a complete {{parody}} and is ''not'' part of the [[Film/JamesBond series]].

The second adaptation of Creator/IanFleming's ''Literature/CasinoRoyale'', released in 1967. It was originally planned to be a straight adaptation of the one novel that EON Productions (at the time) didn't have the rights to, but producer Charles Feldman instead decided to mount it as spoof of Film/JamesBond and spy films in general. Unfortunately a TroubledProduction ensued, and the resultant film, even for a comedy, has MoodWhiplash, incomprehensible plotting, and ridiculousness aplenty.

Sir James Bond (Creator/DavidNiven), the ''original'' as opposed to [[Creator/SeanConnery that imposter who inherited his name and number]], is forced out of retirement to investigate the deaths and disappearances of various British Secret Service agents, which turn out to be the work of the spy organization SMERSH. Organizing the recruitment of a new team of agents, he also plans to confuse SMERSH by naming ''all'' of them "James Bond" -- even the women. The film proceeds to jump back and forth between the misadventures of the faux-007s before most of them are brought together for the climax. They are:

* Evelyn Tremble (Creator/PeterSellers): A baccarat expert sent to challenge SMERSH operative Le Chiffre (Creator/OrsonWelles) at the titular casino, in the one plot thread that is derived from the original book. He is recruited and assisted by...
* Vesper Lynd (Ursula Andress): A former colleague of Sir James Bond who's gone into high finance.
* Mata Bond (Joanna Pettet): Sir James's swinging daughter, the product of his tragic affair with Mata Hari. She's sent behind the Iron Curtain to investigate a SMERSH fundraising auction.
* Cooper, aka "Coop" (Terrence Cooper): His specialty is resisting the advances of women, a vital skill given that the dead agents were all seduced to their dooms by SMERSH's roster of female spies.
* The Detainer (Daliah Lavi): "The new secret weapon" of the group.
* Jimmy Bond (Creator/WoodyAllen): Sir James's "disappointing" American nephew.

''Definitely'' not to be confused with ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006''.
----
!!Tropino Royale:
* AdaptationExpansion: The film actually plays out the original novel's story, after a fashion, but that only took up about a tenth of the running time, the rest of it going off in several bizarre tangents.
* AffablyEvil: Dr. Noah. His grand plan does certainly spring from pettiness and ''is'' threatening genuinely destruction -- [[spoiler: he intends to kill off all men taller than him]] -- but it's also him standing up for the little guy, after a fashion (since [[spoiler: goofy guys like him will now get their choice of women, who will all be turned beautiful by the same device]]). He seems to treat his many, many underlings well; the only one he kills is Le Chiffre, who's FauxAffablyEvil anyway. He does hold the Detainer as a captive in his quarters, but tries to convince her to get in on his scheme and the new world order rather than forcing her into it. In fact, his affability is key to his downfall, as she is able to trick him into [[spoiler: swallowing his own bomb pill]].
* AllInTheEyes: Done with Le Chiffre.
* AlternateContinuity: The film has no connection to the standard Bond continuity... or does it?? It is made specifically clear in this film that after the retirement of the original Bond, his name became nothing more than a codename for new spies - and a subtle reference is made to Creator/SeanConnery's Bond as one of his namesakes.
* AmericansAreCowboys: The American army is apparently composed of CowboysAndIndians.
* AnachronismStew: It's mentioned Sir James Bond had been awarded the Victoria Cross at Mafeking, a siege that took place in 1899-1900. Creator/DavidNiven is in his late 50s here, but this would date Bond as around 85 at least. Bond had an illegitimate daughter by Mata Hari, who was executed in 1917. The daughter is played by a 25-year old Joanna Pettet, but she would have to be 50 at least. But then, this movie is not at all logical or linear.
* AnimatedCreditsOpening: By Creator/RichardWilliams, no less.
* AnyoneCanDie: It's the only movie where James Bond dies. [[spoiler:All seven of them. Many at the same time.]]
* AresnalAttire: [[OverlyLongGag Taken to the point of absurdity]] — Q has just developed a vest with one hundred different (and painfully obvious) functions.
* ArtisticTitle: The film has animated titles that can be best called psychedelic medieval illuminations.
* AuctionOfEvil: La Chiffre sets up an "art auction" between the US, USSR, and Great Britain to sell a set of compromising photographs, culminating in a hilarious scene where each country believes that they are under attack.
* AwesomeAnachronisticApparel: Sir James Bond is a holdover from an earlier, more genteel age of espionage, and underscores it by wearing a series of smart Edwardian suits.
* BackwardsFiringGun: It kills [[spoiler: George Raft]].
* BagOfKidnapping: Vesper steps out of the casino and two waiting thugs throw a bag over her and carry her off. Evelyn steps out a moment later, looking for her.
-->'''Evelyn:''' ''[to doorman]'' You haven't by chance seen a young lady in a green dress, have you?\\
'''Doorman:''' Now let me see, sir...would that be a lady with a black bag over her head being manhandled by two unsavory gentlemen?
* TheBaroness: Parodied with Frau Hoffner—she runs a finger over a facial scar as she purrs to Mata Bond "You are even more ''fascinating'' zan your mother!"
* BigBad: Dr. Noah.
* BilingualBonus: The French Legionnaire translates "merde" when he hits his hand as "ouch." It actually means "shit".
* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: The West Berlin spy school is depicted this way, in the spirit of German expressionism.
* BonnieScotland: Much of the first act takes place here when Sir James Bond has to bring M's personal effects back to his ancestral estate (M was short for [=McTarry=]). SMERSH has beaten him there and filled the estate with spies who play up every single Scottish stereotype (and their accents) to extremes -- haggis, kilts, bagpipes, etc. It's implied that ''none'' of them are actually Scottish themselves; M's "widow" is actually a Frenchwoman named Mimi, as are several of her underlings.
** The Scots theme continues, including Tremble suddenly encountering bagpipers, and his French police contact Inspector Mathis (one of the few characters from the source novel) being played by a Scots actor with accent (which is even {{Lampshaded}}.)
* BrickBreak: Evelyn is introduced to an agent who breaks a cinderblock with a karate chop... and accidentally knocks himself out saluting Bond. Earlier in the film, Bond cracks a ''boulder'' in half with a karate chop while showing off following a successful caber toss.
* TheCameo: Even in a movie chock full of them [[spoiler:Creator/PeterOToole as a bagpiper during Tremble's MindScrew at Le Chiffre's hands]] stands out.
* CampGay: Fordyce, Q's assistant at outfitting Evelyn Tremble.
* CastAsAMask: Dr. Noah is pretty much a spoof of this trope. He's voiced by Valentine Dyall, radio's "Man in Black", until TheReveal that he's actually [[spoiler: Jimmy Bond -- Woody Allen's character]].
* CastFullOfWriters: The film falls into this category - largely because the actual script was such a mess that producers had to get the cast (who included experience writers such as Creator/JohnHuston, Creator/OrsonWelles and Creator/WoodyAllen) to try and make some sense of it. Creator/PeterSellers, the nominal star, also wrote a lot of his own material.
* CelebrityParadox: The original novels describe Bond as looking like a cross between Hoagy Carmichael and David Niven.
* CelibateHero: Niven's Bond, following having to double-cross the love of his life, Mata Hari (yes, ''that'' Mata Hari), and have her executed. And then he kisses Moneypenny's daughter. Yeah.
* ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction: Early on, Bond is visited by a host of intelligence heads, and while talking with them goes through no less than three costume changes. Later on, Evelyn leaves the casino in a tuxedo and is suddenly in full formula racing gear to give chase to the bad guys.
* ComfortingTheWidow: Lady Fiona [=McTarry=] is a SMERSH agent impersonating M's widow - at M's ancestral home she enters Bond's bedroom, demanding to be comforted (and ruin his Celibate Hero image). When he politely declines, she takes it as an insult to her honor.
* CoolCar: Bond drives a suitably old-school Bentley roadster.
* CoverDrop: During the opening credits, notice the images of explosions and several characters as angels. These will make sense at the ''very'' end.
* CowboysAndIndians: The American reinforcements in the climax are these.
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Jimmy Bond sputters not-very-intimidating woodyallenisms at a Banana Republic firing squad:
-->You do know of course that this means an angry letter to the ''Times?''
* DartboardOfHate: Dr. Noah, pathologically jealous of his uncle Sir James Bond, has his face printed on a punching bag. He takes a punch at it, and gets punched back as it recoils.
* DeathByAdaptation: Turns out to be [[spoiler:James Bond himself]]!
* DoorRoulette: Sir James and Moneypenny end up in a hall with many doors which all look alike.
* DownerEnding: A rare PlayedForLaughs version. Most of the cast gets blown up with Casino Royale at the end.
* DutchAngle: This type of shot is used extensively in a sequence with Mata Bond in Berlin, appropriately in a German Expressionist-style set.
* EatTheBomb: The film ends with Jimmy Bond tricked into swallowing his pill-size bomb, and blowing everyone up.
* EgocentricTeamNaming: Once Sir James Bond becomes head of MI6 after the previous M gets offed, the very first thing he does is rename ALL his agents, male AND female, James Bond 007 as a ploy to confuse the enemy.
* EveryoneJoinTheParty: In the finale, all Hell breaks loose when the BigBad's casino is invaded by Ransome and an army of secret agents (apparently) sent to assist James Bond, consisting of a French Foreign Legionnaire, George Raft playing himself, stereotypical CowboysAndIndians, chimpanzees, and even seals. And then everyone else in the casino joins in on the action. No one is safe, [[spoiler: especially when the whole casino explodes at the end, [[KillThemAll killing everyone inside]]]].
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: A chimp shows up in the big fight climax.
* EverythingsLouderWithBagpipes: Vesper uses a bagpipe/machine gun on a corps of pipers attacking Evelyn, and then on him. Early in the movie, agents playing M's widow and daughters try to corrupt Bond at a funeral fling with piping, drinking, and dancing, but he ends up the last person standing.
* EvilAllAlong: Certainly [[spoiler: Jimmy Bond, who turns out to be the Big Bad]], and possibly [[spoiler: Vesper Lynd]].
* EvilPlan: Pretty much the same as the book, except Le Chiffre is working for SMERSH and his double-dealings are a side-plot to SMERSH's master plan, which involves murdering spies all over the world (like the Real Life SMERSH, a Soviet counter-intelligence agency) and to fill the world with a biological agent at the behest of Doctor Noah aka Jimmy Bond. The agent will kill all men over 4'6" (his height) and make all women beautiful; in other words leaving him as the "big man" who gets all the girls.
* FaceHeelTurn: While Le Chiffre is torturing Evelyn, [[spoiler: Vesper Lynd arrives to save him -- only to kill him for the money, apparently]]. (That said, it's possible that this is a case of EvilAllAlong rather than this trope.)
* FakeShemp: Creator/PeterSellers dropped out of the picture midway through filming. Because of this, Evelyn Tremble, in the final scenes of the movie, is played by a ''cardboard cutout of Peter Sellers''. In later versions, this cardboard cutout is replaced by previously shot footage of Sellers, dressed in Highland garb.
* FamousLastWords:
** "I don't understand." [[spoiler: Smiernov]]
** "Sorry... James." [[spoiler: M]]
** "Jag to Dairy, drop speed now!" [[spoiler: Jag]]

** "Police!" [[spoiler: Unknown man]]
** "I've been framed. This gun shoots backwards; I've just killed myself." [[spoiler: George Raft]]
** "Three... two..." [[spoiler: Dr. Noah/Jimmy Bond]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: Le Chiffre's a jolly gambler, but at the same time he has no qualms with blowing up the auctioneer ''via telephone'' when the auction is ruined by Mata Bond or torturing Evelyn Tremble after Evelyn wins the game.
* FemmeFataleSpy: Marta Bond, the illegitimate daughter of Mata Hari and James Bond, is this trope played for maximum silliness.
* FinalSpeech: Parodied - SMERSH agent Mimi, after her HeelFaceTurn, gets a little bit of shrapnel in the chest and coughs out a big impassioned goodbye to Sir James, followed by a big kiss.
-->'''Sir James''': Madam! Are you ''quite'' sure you're dying?
-->'''Mimi''': Not dying...but moving on to a better place. ...there's a convent over the next hill!
* FluffyCloudHeaven and FireAndBrimstoneHell: Spoofed in the final scene. "Six of them went to a heavenly spot, the seventh one is going to a place where it's terribly hot."
* FollowThatCar: Spoofed, with race car driver Stirling Moss in a cameo as the running chauffeur.
-->I'll use [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juan_Manuel_Fangio Fangio]] next time, idiot!
* FootsieUnderTheTable: SMERSH attempts to destroy Sir James Bond's CelibateHero image through almost certain temptation - at M's castle at a funeral dinner, two female agents flanking him drape their legs over his.
* GainaxEnding: Preceded by a [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible Gainax Middle, and a Gainax Beginning]].
* GenderBlenderName: Evelyn Tremble. Vesper Lynd asks him straight off if that isn't a woman's name. ("...No, it's mine, actually.") Of course, there was also the writer Evelyn Waugh.
* {{Gendercide}}: Jimmy Bond has developed a strain of bacteria that, when released, would turn every woman beautiful and destroy every man over four foot-six (or taller than him).
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The opening scene is constructed to make it look like the police inspector meeting with Evelyn is showing him his genitals.
** "Gosh, what an enormous bed!" "The German army was very big in those days."
** "That's the first john I've ever gone round with." (She's referring to a toilet.)
* GoodOldWays: Bond considers spying to be a noble calling and expresses contempt for the current breed exemplified by his namesake.
* HaggisIsHorrible: At M's wake, Fiona, the enemy agent posing as his widow, details the preparation of the haggis traditionally made for the occasion; Sir James incredulously gulps "and...''eat'' it?"[[note]]Ironically, the original novels gave Bond Scottish ancestry, as ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' explicitly acknowledged.[[/note]]
* HiccupHijinks: Jimmy Bond is tricked into swallowing an aspirin that makes him hiccup 1,000 times [[spoiler: and then explode. The explosion destroys the Casino Royale and kills pretty much the entire cast]].
* IAmSpartacus: The original Bond gives orders that all the newly recruited agents are to be called James Bond 007.
* InNameOnly: The film bears only a slight resemblance to the source novel.
* InstrumentOfMurder: Vesper uses the old machine-gun-in-the-bagpipes trick.
* InsultBackfire: The Detainer is held captive by Jimmy Bond:
-->'''The Detainer''': You're crazy! You're actually crazy!
-->'''Jimmy''': They called Einstein crazy.
-->'''The Detainer''': That's not true; no one ever called Einstein crazy!
-->'''Jimmy''': Well, they would have if he'd carried on like this...
* InterchangeableAsianCultures: During the AFSD training scene, Cooper says "sayonara" to a Chinese woman.
* KarmaHoudini: Oddly, [[spoiler:Vesper Lynd actually makes it to Heaven with the other James Bonds ''and stays there'', unlike Jimmy Bond]].
* KillEmAll: [[spoiler: Jimmy Bond is tricked into eating an explosive pill, which blows up the casino at the end with every main character in it. However, all the good guys are seen in heaven, strumming harps. Even the villain, until "Six of them went to a Heavenly spot, the seventh one is going to a place where it's terribly hot."]]
* KindaBusyHere: Done in a makeshift foxhole with military telephones.
British General: I'm sorry, dear, but I won't be home in time for dinner... well, apparently a war has broken out.
* LargeHam: Creator/DeborahKerr devours the scenery as a Scottish lady.
* LastRequest: Jimmy Bond is in front of a firing squad, and requests a last cigarette, which is a bomb he throws at the firing squad. This distracts them which allows him to climb over the wall behind him. Of course, behind that wall is another firing squad performing another execution at that very moment.
* LoveFatherLoveSon: James Bond comes out of retirement, walks into his office, and bumps into Moneypenny. Exclaiming that she hasn't aged a day, he kisses her full on the mouth... only for her to reveal that she's actually Moneypenny's ''daughter''. Bond looks appropriately abashed and keeps his hands off her for the rest of the film.
* ManInAKilt: James Bond goes up against a bunch of Scotsmen, while Evelyn is hallucinated into a hostile Highlander marching band.
* MidBattleTeaBreak: There's a bit of background business at Q Branch where a prisoner is being brutally beaten in an interrogation...the tea cart comes around moments later and he's amicably drinking with his interrogators.
* MistakenForDying: Agent Mimi, after her HeelFaceTurn, helps Sir James Bond and gets injured. She goes on in a melodramatic dying scene fashion and requests a last kiss.
-->'''Sir James''': Madam! Are you quite sure you're dying?
-->'''Mimi''': Not dying - but moving on...to a better place. There's a ''convent'' over that hill!
* MoodWhiplash: When Vesper Lynd recruits Evelyn Tremble, the film suddenly becomes considerably less wacky, though still heavy on comic DoubleEntendre; it's where "The Look of Love" comes in after 40+ minutes of slapstick. Most of Creator/PeterSellers' scenes come as this compared to the rest of the film, in part because he plays his role mostly straight -- reacting to the strange world he's in rather than being just another wacky resident of it. This is because Sellers was cast when the movie was intended to be a straight adaptation, and he apparently considered the final script a bait-and-switch. He either refused to deliver the comedic lines as scripted and ad-libbed, or may have even out-and-out rewrote his scenes with the collaboration of an outside screenwriter to make them hew closer to the original conception he had been promised. Accounts vary.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Evelyn is at a training center preparing to take the role of James Bond. He's shown gadgets for the field, including a pen that sprays poison gas. He tells the obligatory 'poison pen letter' joke, and his instructor wearily finishes the sentence with him, pointing out that all new recruits say that. [[Film/{{Octopussy}} Some years later]], Creator/RogerMoore as 007 says it, but gets a free pass (apart from Q's usual peevish reaction.)
* NotEnoughToBury: Played for laughs - Sir James Bond survives a mortar bombardment of his home but M doesn't. He visits M's widow carrying a small box containing all that's left of him.
-->'''Sir James''': ...Should it be given a Christian burial? Just how personal ''is'' a toupee?
-->'''Lady Fiona''': It can only be regarded as a heirloom.
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Vesper Lynd speaks with Ursula Andress' native Swiss-German accent.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Jimmy Bond's introductory scene has him nervously trying to talk a firing squad out of shooting him ("You do realize this means an angry letter to the ''Times''?"), but he successfully pulls off a distraction when they're about to fire and scales the wall behind him to escape...although it turns out that there's ''another'' firing squad about to shoot someone else on the other side and he barely escapes ''that''. This foreshadows Jimmy [[spoiler: turning out to be Dr. Noah, the Big Bad]] in the late going.
* ObligatoryJoke: Q is outfitting Evelyn with spy gadgets, including a fountain pen that shoots a stream of poison.
-->'''Tremble''': It must be very useful when writing —-
-->'''Q''': — a poison-pen letter, yes. All our new agents say that.
* OffhandBackhand: A nice dual example with Sir James and Ransome during the climactic fight scene, with no break in their conversation.
* OneLastSmoke: Jimmy Bond has a last cigarette in front of a Latin American firing squad ("I'm gonna give it up any day now") - it's an impact bomb he throws at the squad. He climbs the wall laughing in triumph - and lands on the other side...in front of another firing squad.
* OneSteveLimit: Sir James Bond spearheads a campaign against SMERSH - he gives all his agents (men and women alike) the name James Bond, to keep the enemy confused.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Inverted: Agent Mimi, played by the Scottish Creator/DeborahKerr, impersonates M's widow, but upon witnessing the prowess of Bond, doesn't lapse back into a native French accent, but starts singing his praises in orgiastic French.
* OvertOperative: MI-6 formally gives the codename "James Bond 007" to every single one of their agents— including the women—in order to confuse people.
* PhlebotinumBomb: Jimmy Bond is devising a weapon that will make all women beautiful and kill all men who are taller than he is.
* PlanetOfSteves: Sir James Bond, now heading the secret service, assigns all his agents the name and number of James Bond 007 to confuse the enemy. Previously, when he had resigned, his superiors had assigned his name and number to the 007 we all know for agency morale purposes.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: It's unclear how the increasingly [[DenserAndWackier zany]] plot was conceived. The best guess is that even though Charles Feldman had the ''right'' to make a straight ''Film/JamesBond'' entry, he feared that he would not be able to compete with the official Bond movies, and he directed each writer who came along to make the film more and more of a parody. As mentioned above, however, Creator/PeterSellers had been hired while the film was still intended to be a serious Bond movie, and he saw it as a way to broaden his acting portfolio. He was not amused when the film veered towards a wacky parody during the filming process, and after many fights with the producers, the director and his co-stars, including/especially Creator/OrsonWelles, Sellers either was fired or quit. After that, Feldman, scrambling for a replacement story, decided to go all-out and pack the film with ''seven'' Bonds, and also hired a different director for each act of the film, resulting in its extremely disjointed feel.
* TheReveal: Dr. Noah is [[spoiler: actually Jimmy Bond]].
* ReversePolarity: Self-inflicted when a henchman with a crude battery-powered pacemaker is unplugged by Mata Bond. He frantically reconnects himself and gets the leads wrong, running backward at high speed.
* RuleOfFunny: Much of the movie runs on this, with the climactic fight the most elaborate example.
* RunningIntoTheWindow: Dr. Noah, in his underground lair, meets up with his uncle James Bond, and lowers a big sheet of invisible glass between them. When James sums up his plans for world domination as compensation for his feelings of sexual inferiority, Noah angrily steps forward — forgetting about the glass and smashing it to bits.
* SayingTooMuch: Parodied when Mata Bond is looking for information on Le Chiffre:
-->'''Frau Hoffner''': Come along, child. The auction is about to begin.
-->'''Mata Bond''': Auction?
-->'''Frau Hoffner''': Tonight we are selling one of the finest art collections in Europe.
-->'''Mata Bond''': Le Chiffre's collection?
-->'''Frau Hoffner''': Who?
-->'''Mata Bond''': Le Chiffre.
-->'''Frau Hoffner''': Who is Le Chiffre?
-->'''Mata Bond''': The man who owns the collection.
-->'''Frau Hoffner''': What collection?
-->'''Mata Bond''': The collection that's about to be auctioned.
-->'''Frau Hoffner''': Who said anything about an auction?
-->'''Mata Bond''': You did.
-->'''Frau Hoffner''': Who am ''I''?
-->'''Mata Bond''': Frau Hoffner.
-->'''Frau Hoffner''': Never heard of her. You are insane, my child, quite insane.
-->'''Mata Bond''': I think she's right!
* {{Sexbot}}: Jimmy Bond has made robot doubles of all the world leaders, and several opposition agents, including The Detainer. He sheepishly explains "I copied her down to the last...the two of us have had some...profoundly moving religious experiences."
* SexySecretary: Played with - an out-of-retirement Bond enters his office and tells Moneypenny "You haven't changed a bit!". After a long smooch, she informs him that she's Moneypenny's daughter.
* ShoePhone: James Bond is an old-school gentleman spy who, meeting with the secret service heads of the superpowers, contemptuously ridicules the gadgetry concealed on their persons.
* ShotAtDawn: Jimmy Bond is in front of a BananaRepublic firing squad. He gets away using a concussion grenade hidden in his last cigarette, jumps the wall - and lands in front of a firing squad in the neighboring country.
* SignificantBirthDate: Jimmy Bond plots to replace all the world's leaders with his robotic doubles on April Fools Day, his birthday.
* SoLongSuckers: Jimmy Bond is at a Latin American firing squad - his last cigarette is a concussion bomb he throws at the shooters. He climbs the wall chuckling "So long, suckers!" - and lands on the other side in another country, in front of a firing squad for another guy.
* SpeechImpediment: The original James Bond has a tendency to stutter -- until he returns from Scotland. Back at MI-5 he asks an underling if he's stuttering; when he's told he's not, he says that's good because he "doesn't have time for that now."
* SpoilerOpening: The title sequence contains shots from the ending sequence.
* StageMagician: Le Chiffre does a few magic tricks during the poker scene. This is because magic-loving Creator/OrsonWelles was allowed to do them to keep him happy as the shoot dragged on. They're reportedly all genuine illusions, with no camera tricks.
* StiffUpperLip: The CosmopolitanCouncil believes that bombs are being dropped. The American representative rushes to the phone yelling "Get me the President!" while the British representative merely calls his wife and calmly explains that he won't be home for dinner because "it seems a war has broken out."
* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: Jimmy Bond has the Detainer strapped naked to a cot (with wide, strategically placed metal straps). His intentions are strictly lustful.
-->'''Detainer''': And is this how you treat the women you desire?
-->'''Jimmy''': Yes! Yes, I remove their clothing and tie them up, yes. I learned that in the Boy Scouts.
* StronglyWordedLetter: Jimmy Bond threatens to write an angry letter to The Times, as he's stood before a firing squad.
* TakeThat:
** Niven's Bond calls Creator/SeanConnery's Bond a sex maniac who dragged the James Bond name through the dirt, and takes his fellow spies to task for relying on gadgets.
** Peter Sellers was fired/quit midway through the shoot due to chronic absences and miscellaneous poor behavior, so the filmmakers making up for this by having his character [[spoiler: shot to death by the suddenly turncoat Vesper]] can be seen as this as well.
* TheTaxi: Mata Bond has to leave London for Berlin, so naturally they flag a taxi. When it's specified to be ''West'' Berlin, the driver's okay with it.
* TelevisionPortal: Le Chiffre is anxiously watching two of Doctor Noah's enforcers (who have come to kill him) over a security monitor. One of the men walks right up to the camera, reaches his gun hand up and then smashes through the screen and shoots Le Chiffre dead.
* TheTelevisionTalksBack: A very surrealist example: Le Chiffre is watching two hit men on a security monitor. One of them marches up until he's filling the screen, then smashes his arm through the monitor and shoots Le Chiffre in the head.
* TomboyishName: Inverted Evelyn Tremble. Evelyn as a male name wasn't completely unknown in the mid-20th century (most obviously, Creator/EvelynWaugh), but it was pretty uncommon.
* TooManyCooksSpoilTheSoup: Five directors working on it wouldn't lead to good results.
* VideoPhone: Sir James Bond calls Vesper on the video ShoePhone while she's getting dressed. She indignantly covers the camera until she hears Bond signing off, only to remove her hand to see Bond looking downwards expectantly.
* ViolentGlaswegian: A bunch of tough Scotsmen who challenge Bond to a game of catch with stone cannonballs, a Highland marching band that roughs up Peter Sellers in a programmed hallucination, and Scots henchmen in Jimmy Bond's underground lair. Also, French police officer Mathis speaks with a Scots accent, which worries him.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The end title theme says that there are 'seven James Bonds.' Actually, there are eight in the film — David Niven (Bond himself), Peter Sellers (Tremble, codenamed James Bond), Terence Cooper (Cooper, codenamed James Bond), Woody Allen (Jimmy Bond), Daliah Lavi (Lady James Bond), Joanna Pettet (Mata Bond, codenamed James Bond), Barbara Bouchet (Moneypenny, codenamed James Bond), and Ursula Andress (Vesper, codenamed James Bond). However, the scene that accompanies this song, with the 'seven James Bonds' in Heaven, is lacking Terence Cooper, who apparently somehow DIDN'T die in the casino explosion...? Or they may mean Lady James Bond, aka The Detainer; she was last seen before her attempted escape from a second-story bathroom window. Given the extended period of time between her entering the bathroom and the explosion, it can be assumed that she either fell to her death (the first floor IS rather tall), or that she was still trying to descend the drain-pipe during the explosion.
** Actually they're all there. All eight of them. The one that the 'seven James Bonds' song doesn't acknowledge is Sellers, since he died in an earlier scene and so he's not among the seven James Bonds that died at the Casino, he was already in the afterlife. Notice how all seven of the just deceased ones are dressed like angels but Sellers stays in the same Scottish garments he died in.
* WhatSongWasThisAgain: When the film was translated into French and German, it was considered a good idea to also record dubbed versions of Music/DustySpringfield's "The Look Of Love". Mireille Mathieu not only sang the French version "Les jeux d'amour", but also the German version "Ein Blick von dir". In 1970, she and Dusty re-recorded the English original, by the way.
* WhosLaughingNow: [[spoiler: Jimmy Bond]] is the BigBad, intending to conquer the world as revenge against [[spoiler: his famous, and infinitely more stylish and sophisticated, uncle]].
* WhyAmITicking: Jimmy Bond turns into a bomb after being tricked into swallowing his own explosive pill.
* WingedSoulFliesOffAtDeath: "Seven James Bonds at Casino Royale. They came to save the world and win a gal at Casino Royale. Six of them went to a heavenly spot. The seventh one is going to a place where it's terribly hot."
* WithMyHandsTied: Jimmy Bond tries to show to the Detainer that he's just as manly as his uncle Sir James Bond - he sits down at a piano and masterfully plays some Debussy (a passionate pursuit of Sir James), then goes all "Look, one hand!" - then hastily hammers the piano off when it keeps playing without him.

* YouHaveFailedMe: Le Chiffre detonates a minion in a phone booth, remotely.
* YoureInsane:
