Why was Casino Royale not the first Bond film?
The reason why Eon Productions didn’t adapt Casino Royale as the first Bond movie instead of Dr. No is that the movie rights to Fleming’s first 007 novel belonged to another producer, Charles K. Feldman. Albert Broccoli tried to buy the rights to Casino Royale, but Feldman declined.
Why is Casino Royale in black and white?
Originally Answered: Why are parts of Casina Royale in black and white? This was the movie that introduced a “rebooted” Bond – a more realistic and gritty version. In this context the black and white photography conveys “memory” ie James Bond’s first lethal mission.
