Sir James Bond is called out of retirement when the world is threatened by mysterious mastermind ‘Dr Noah’. Meanwhile, the British secret service recruit and train various other operatives who are code-named ‘James Bond 007’, notably baccarat expert Evelyn Tremble (Peter Sellers), who is required to take on SMERSH chief Le Chiffre at the Casino Royale.
Despite being not officially a Bond film this is good solid, entertaining action.
