James Bond Series Episode 5

This podcast is hosted by James Bond, James Bond, and James Bond.

In 1967 Bond fans were very anxious for the next installment in the series, with Sean Connery returning in You Only Live Twice. But that’s not the movie we’re reviewing! A few short weeks before You Only Live Twice came out, the first “unofficial” James Bond film came out–Casino Royale! A broad Bond spoof with several big name actors, a licensing deal allowed Columbia Pictures to put out this competing James Bond film, and would be the only theatrical adaptation of Ian Flemings first James Bond novel for almost 40 years. How does this movie fit into the rest of the Bond series? Listen to Brock, Stuart, and Arnies review to find out!
