Trivia:
Cameos by Frank Sinatra, Sophia Loren, and Barbra Streisand were planned.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When David Niven (Sir James Bond) introduces himself to Moneypenny, he says "... I'm partial to Jasmine Tea." MoneyPenny: "Jasmine tea, Sir?" Bond: "Lapsang Soochong". These are two very different teas. Since Bond (and Niven) would certainly know the difference, this may be an intentional joke, e.g. a reference to the "real" Bond's "Martini... shaken, not stirred", or (as much of the dialog was improvised) a cast in-joke.See more »
Quotes:
Evelyn Tremble:Grand Prix enthusiasts may be worried by the amount of time it has taken me to get into this Lotus Formula Three. What they don't realize is, although Le Chiffre thinks he has a faster car than me, I am faster in my Lotus Formula Three. Hee Hee!See more »

Gregory Ratoff---Did He Own the Rights to "Casino"?

What can you say about a film with 5 directors and 10 writers?, 21 July 2004
Author: shino from United States

Occasional fun for the 60's lover, but completely incoherent as entertainment. I should confess that as a young kid I did love the film, just as I loved _What's new Pussycat_, and when I got a little older I became a guilty admirer of _The Blues Brothers_ and _1941_. So I am sucker for the comedy epic/ celebrity ensemble.

However, _Casino_ is simply over the top at being over the top. It seems impossible to create a successful film with 5 directors and 10 writers (not including Ian Fleming, but including Ben Hecht, Joseph Heller, Terry Southern and Billy Wilder !!). The story lacks even a real protagonist; Niven and Sellers trade places in that role. When they run out of story, pie fights emerge, or fusillades of bullets, or tremendous explosions.

The film is certainly not without its merits. Like _What's New Pussycat_ they did manage to corral some of the most beautiful women of the time together in the same film. When Andress is not speaking, as in the "Look of Love" sequence or in Seller's "shampoo" dream she's truly breathtaking. Allen is always funny, and Welles does a pretty good turn as le Chiffre. The Bacharach score and Herb Alpert open and closing sequences are memorable.

As a DVD extra, the American dramatic version of _Casino Royale_ (1954) is included on the DVD, which predated Connery by 8 years!!
