Casino Royale

 (1967)

Casino Royale Blu-ray despite solid video and great audio falls short as an overall poor Blu-ray release

In a chaotic send-up of the Bond franchise, Sir James Bond is called back out of retirement to stop SMERSH. In order to trick SMERSH and Le Chiffre, Bond decides to name every agent "James Bond". One of the Bonds, whose real name is Evelyn Tremble, is sent to take on Le Chiffre in a game of baccarat, but all the Bonds get more than they can handle.

For more about Casino Royale and the Casino Royale Blu-ray release, see Casino Royale Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: David Niven, Peter Sellers, Ursula Andress, Orson Welles, Woody Allen, Deborah Kerr
Directors: Val Guest, Joseph McGrath, John Huston, Ken Hughes, Robert Parrish (I), Richard Talmadge

Casino Royale Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The AVC-encoded transfer is smooth and film-like, with a grain structure that is visible but not intrusive. Black levels are generally excellent, as they need to be in all scenes in the casino (with all the gentlemen in their tuxedos) or the Berlin sequences, with its many dark interiors. The breadth and variety of rich, saturated color is especially noteworthy in interior scenes, where cinematographer Jack Hildyard (The Bridge on the River Kwai) had the freedom to light with the full intensity required for the slow film stocks and anamorphic lenses of the day. (The lights generated so much heat that the rotund Orson Welles had to change his entire costume after each take, because it was soaked with perspiration.) Colors in outdoor scenes, which rely more on natural light, tend to be less intense, but outdoor scenes are the exception in this film, where artifice prevails.

Detail is generally quite good, allowing one to take in the full extent of the elaborate production design. However, the image is somewhat soft, which appears to be inherent in the original photography, and is certainly to be expected in the many shots that used opticals to achieve effects that today would be created by CGI. No artificial sharpening or noise reduction appears to have been applied. The source materials are in excellent condition.

A further note: While preparing this review and creating screenshots, I have played back Casino Royale on three different players: a Panasonic BDP-50, a PS3 and a BD-ROM drive on my desktop using playback software. On the BD-ROM drive, I noticed significant vertical "banding" in the latter third of the film, but this was nowhere to be seen on the Panasonic or the PS3. This confirms, yet again, that the playback device can be a critical element in what one sees on a Blu-ray.


Casino Royale Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Casino Royale was originally released in both mono and 6-track 70mm. Bacharach's score was recorded in stereo and was long considered a reference recording. The Blu-ray's soundtrack is DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, and it sounds terrific, within the limitations of the source. Except for occasional dialogue pans left and right, the mix is largely front-centered. Effects such as gunshots or explosions have relatively little impact, but that may be by design, since the film was intended as a spoof. Indeed, many of the effects seem to be aiming for a "smaller than life" style. Meanwhile, dialogue remains clear, and Bacharach's richly reproduced score seems to float above the silly proceedings onscreen like the independent marvel it is.
