Casino Royale 1967

I watched the original Casino Royale yesterday for the first time... Released in 1967 this Bond Spoof is certainly dated...I wish I had dropped some acid to watch this psychedelic romp...Tons of hot birds in mini skirts with automatic weapons...Watching Casino Royale showed me how unoriginal Austin Powers really was...Instead of the John Barry's Bond score you get Burt Bacharach and Herb Albert...Which is cool but didn't Bacharach play The Look of Love in one of those Austin Powers...I was surprised that the Daniel Craig's Royale used characters from the original like Vespa,and Le Chiffre, but these characters were probably in Flemming's book which I've never read...In the contemporary Royale Baccarat is replaced by Texas hold'em because who the hell plays baccarat except maybe Burt Bacharach
