He died from a heart attack in April , two days before he was due to present it to Feldman. Time reported in that the script had been completely re-written by Billy Wilder , and by the time the film reached production only the idea that the name James Bond should be given to a number of other agents remained.
Extensive sequences also featured London, notably Trafalgar Square and the exterior of 10 Downing Street. Mereworth Castle in Kent was used as the home of Sir James Bond, which is blown up at the start of the film. The production proved to be rather troubled, with five different directors helming different segments of the film and with stunt co-ordinator Richard Talmadge co-directing the final sequence. Val Guest was given the responsibility of splicing the various "chapters" together, and was offered the unique title of "Co-ordinating Director" but declined, claiming the chaotic plot would not reflect well on him if he were so credited.
His extra credit was labelled "Additional Sequences" instead. Screenwriter Wolf Mankowitz declared that Sellers felt intimidated by Orson Welles to the extent that, except for a couple of shots, neither was in the studio simultaneously. Other versions of the legend depict the drama stemming from Sellers being slighted, in favour of Welles, by Princess Margaret whom Sellers knew during her visit to the set.
Welles also insisted on performing magic tricks as Le Chiffre, and the director obliged. Director Val Guest wrote that Welles did not think much of Sellers, and had refused to work with "that amateur". Some biographies of Sellers suggest that he took the role of Bond to heart, and was annoyed at the decision to make Casino Royale a comedy, as he wanted to play Bond straight.
This is illustrated in somewhat fictionalised form in the film The Life and Death of Peter Sellers , based on the biography by Roger Lewis , who has claimed that Sellers kept re-writing and improvising scenes to make them play seriously.
This story is in agreement with the observation that the only parts of the film close to the book are the ones featuring Sellers and Welles. Jean-Paul Belmondo and George Raft received major billing , even though both actors appear only briefly. Both appear during the climactic brawl at the end, Raft flipping his trademark coin and promptly shooting himself dead with a backward-firing pistol, while Belmondo appears wearing a fake moustache as the French Foreign Legion officer who requires an English phrase book to translate " merde!
At the Intercon science fiction convention held in Slough in , David Prowse commented on his part in this film, apparently his big-screen debut. He claimed that he was originally asked to play "Super Pooh", a giant Winnie-the-Pooh in a superhero costume who attacks Tremble during the Torture of The Mind sequence.
The final sequence was principally directed by former actor and stuntman Richard Talmadge. The story of Casino Royale is told in an episodic format. Val Guest oversaw the assembly of the sections, although he turned down the credit of "co-ordinating director".
Director credits: Sellers left the production before all his scenes were shot, which is why his character, Tremble, is so abruptly captured in the film. Whether Sellers was fired or simply walked off is unclear. Given that he often went absent for days at a time and was involved in conflicts with Welles, either explanation is plausible.
The framing device of a beginning and ending with David Niven was invented to salvage the footage. He chose to use the original Bond and Vesper as linking characters to tie the story together. In the originally released versions of the film, a cardboard cutout of Sellers in the background was used for the final scenes.
In later versions, this cardboard cutout was replaced by footage of Sellers in highland dress, inserted by "trick photography". Signs of missing footage from the Sellers segments are evident at various points. Evelyn Tremble is not captured on camera; an outtake of Sellers entering a racing car was substituted.
As well as this, an entire sequence involving Tremble going to the front for the underground James Bond training school which turns out to be under Harrods , of which the training area was the lowest level was never shot, thus creating an abrupt cut from Vesper announcing that Tremble will be James Bond to Tremble exiting the lift into the training school.
So many sequences from the film were removed, that several well-known actors never appeared in the final cut, including Ian Hendry as , the agent whose body is briefly seen being disposed of by Vesper , Mona Washbourne and Arthur Mullard. Bacharach worked over two years writing for Casino Royale , in the meantime composing the After the Fox score and being forced to decline participation in Luv.
Lyricist Hal David contributed with various songs, many of which appeared in just instrumental versions. It is played in the scene of Vesper Lynd recruiting Evelyn Tremble, seen through a man-size aquarium in a seductive walk.
It was heard again in the first Austin Powers film, which was to a degree inspired by Casino Royale. Bacharach would later rework two tracks of the score into songs: A clarinet melody would later be featured in a Cracker Jack commercial. The original album cover art was done by Robert McGinnis , based on the film poster and the original stereo vinyl release of the soundtrack Colgems COSO That record has been regarded by some music critics as the finest-sounding LP of all time, and is still highly sought after by audiophiles.
The soundtrack album became famous among audio purists for the excellence of its recording. It then became a standard "audiophile test" record for decades to come, especially the vocal performance by Dusty Springfield on "The Look of Love. Shipped next day from GA, United States.
