Casino Royale
8 November 2004 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

Just for information purposes: if you buy the spoof of Casino Royale (David Niven, Peter Sellers, et al) on DVD, this Climax episode is included on it under the special features category.

The sound and video quality was not the greatest, but was about what I expected for a copy of TV video. Of the two, I prefer the spoof - Peter Sellers makes a great Bond and I loved it when he had to put on his glasses to shoot the cork off Ursula Andress' champaign bottle. If you've never seen the spoof and like Austin Powers, you should rent it. Soundtrack is good too. ; ; ; ;
