Casino Royale 1967 – from the subtitle of the composition – refers to the first film adaptation of of the eponymous 1953 debut novel of the English author Ian Flemming (1908-1964), best known as the creator of James Bond. The 1967 film, with a star-studded cast, produced by the ground-breaking Hollywood producer Charles Feldman (1904-1968), is a controversial parody on the Bond theme. The film’s controversial outcome, besides stemming from the Feldman’s undoubtfully disctinctive approach to the actors and the crew, was also a result of many revearsals of circumstances connected with its origin. This film features several outstanding individual acting performances, musical numbers, and visual sequences, all of which are, on the whole, connected by a fairly complicated concept, revised several times during the film’s production.

Although the Bond music themes are not present in this score, the subtitle is not the only reference to the famous agent of Her Majesty.

The alternate characters of the composition title, who might have been extras in Casino Royale 1967, are fictitious. The actual title of the composition depends on whether it is performed by a female or a male violinist.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
