The French Legionnaire spot in the credits... reminds me of the Mexican bandit as seen in Brownjohn's end titles for GF...

Music “The Venerable Sir James Bond” (made up of a few shorter cues)

Re: AJB live commentary on Casino Royale 1967

The title music reminds me of the music from the TV cooking program in the 70's  and 80's  ajb007/lol

Niven might have been a good Bond. In about 1938.

David Niven as a principled Edwardian adventurer Bond.

Erik Chitty as the butler. He was an acquaintance of my grandfather when they worked together as dockers.

I like the reference to the "sexual acrobat" and "bounder" - i.e Connery's Bond.

Watch SWASHBUCKLER.  She's in it in a very small (essentially window dressing) role and looks quite lovely.
