Throwback to a classic film


Looking back

Some things stand the test of time, a musical classic, a great book, a movie, and James Bond’s 007 is an iconic character who has been played by great actors like Sean Connery, the late great Sir Roger Moore and David Niven among others who were in the very first Casino Royale.

Casino Royale was the first James Bond novel written from the imagination of Ian Fleming and it was the novel which was to pave the way for eleven amazing novels and no less than two collections of short stories, and which was to lead to many more Bond novels created by other authors who continued the adventures of 007.

Casino Royale

The first one Casino Royale was first published in 1953 and has since been adapted for the big screen three times. The first was actually a 1954 episode of Climax! Where Barry Nelson played a CIA agent who went by the name “Jimmy Bond,” something that will send shivers down the spine of lovers of posh secret service agent James Bond.

It wasn’t until 1967 that the first real movie starred the marvelous David Niven as Sir James Bond, then it was remade in 2006 and starred Daniel Craig in the iconic role.

The film is set early in Bond’s career as he gets his license to kill. Interestingly, Baccarat’s Bonds game is featured in earlier versions, but in the 2006 film, it’s built around a deck of cards that allows the legendary character that is James Bond to grow and mature.

Bond has always been a gambler, whether in the instant choices he has to make as a spy, or whether he frequents one of the top casinos around the world. He enjoys the drama and excitement of the people around him in addition to the glamor and glitz of his surroundings. He feels at home and comfortable in such an environment and watching him sit and play is pure pleasure for many fans.
