Description

Retired after years of international espionage, Agent 007 is lured back into action to battle the evil spy organization SMERSH in this parody of the James Bond films. David Niven portrays the aging Bond, who atypically rejects the advances of a variety of women, and agrees to battle SMERSH's hold on the lavish Casino Royale only after organization head M is murdered. Also mixed up in the affair are several other secret agents, all named James Bond, played by everyone from Peter Sellers and Woody Allen to a chimpanzee. A witty, zany parody of Bond, James Bond that perfectly captures the freewheeling spirit of the late 1960s.

  • Burt Bacharach score & “The Look of Love”

    5
    By Big little Apple
    FYI: It was a Burt Bacharach score, e.g., “The Look of Love,” which became a hit for Dusty Springfield but many prefer Ronald Isley’s version with Burt’s arrangement, conducting that has many sublime songs with the combined genius of Isley & Burt, as well as the greatest cover of “Raindrops keep falling…” on that album “Here I Am: Isley Meets Bacharach.” Burt’s autobiography, Ch. 12, has the fascinating background for the score to this film, including the usual magnanimity of Herb Alpert (how many USC alumni give $30 million to fund the music school of the baby bears? Not to mention millions to CalArts, Harlem School of the Arts, & LACC (scholarships for all impecunious music majors, et al.)). Later, Burt remembered Herb’s saving kindness & gave him two #1 hits, “This Guy’s in Love…”; & “Close to you,” which Alpert’s company, A&M, gave to and released for the Carpenters. N.B. Bacharach was nominated for an Oscar. Ergo, the five stars are for the music, although the film is an interesting proto-postmodern hybridity, 4 stars to be kind and generous.

    leider haben wir den Fehler gemacht und wieder einmal iTunes genutzt: zwei Stunden Wartezeit, danach nur in Französich oder Englisch abspielbar und drittens nicht auf unserem Beamer. Apple sollte sich mal um kundenfreundliche Technologie kümmern, statt um Genderquoten, Klimareligion und Trumpschelte.
