Storyline

Romantic comedy which has Barney Lincoln and Angel McGinnis as a pair of amorous adventurers in the gambling places of London and the Riviera. Barney Lincoln is a rambling gambling man who scores sensational wins at poker and chemin de fer because he has succeeded in marking the original plates for the backs of all the playing cards manufactured in a plant in Geneva and used in all the gambling joints in Europe. In his gambling depredation, Barney is spotted by Angel McGinnis, the daughter of a Scotland Yard Inspector 'Manny' McGinnis on the lookout for a man to do a job. The inspector enlists Barney's help in playing poker with a shady London character whom Scotland Yard wants to force to financial ruin. Written by alfiehitchie

This film is based on the James Bond novel "Casino Royale" by Ian Fleming.
22 February 2001 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

Though not credited (and probably unauthorized), this film is clearly based on the James Bond novel "Casino Royale" by Ian Fleming. In fact, it's more like the novel than the 1967 film "Casino Royale". The initial set-up of the story is very different - it has nothing to do with spies, and Beatty's character is not based on Bond; but his attempt to out-gamble a villain, and the subsequent events, will be very familiar to anyone who has read the book. Bond fans who have wished for a faithful adaptation of "Casino Royale" should check out this film.

*****************************************************

ADDENDA: I wrote the above comments in February of 2001. It's now November 2006, and a new "official" version of "Casino Royale" is in theaters. It's one of the best Bond films ever, and very faithful to Fleming's original book. But I still heartily recommend "Kaleidoscope" to Bond fans (and others).
