I recently learned the forgotten 'first Bond film' - the 1954 CBS production of "Casino Royale" - was actually in color; the existing copies (evidently two, a better quality copy that ends short and a muddy-looking copy with the entire ending) just happen to be black and white. So, my question is.... Why the hell has this never been colorized? Honestly, this little film's always been severely mishandled; after years as a public domain release, MGM tacked it onto "Casino Royale '67" as a special feature (ONLY the initial DVD release, the expanded edition is missing it), but used the public domain 'short ending' version. The uncut film was released by a fan club called SpyGuise as a VHS, before EON Productions swept in and forced cancellation of a DVD release (which also would've included a new Barry Nelson interview). As of 2006, EON finally owned the film, and one would've expected it might get the proper treatment as a Daniel Craig tie-in.... which never happened. To this day, EON have more or less ignored its existence, and the rare SpyGuise tape is still the only way to own the uncut movie. With the ability to colorize footage growing easier and easier - a fan just colorized an entire William Hartnell "Doctor Who" that NEVER existed in color - wouldn't it be a significant release to tout "the ORIGINAL James Bond film, complete and restored to color at last"? Though, given EON's attitudes towards the 'other Bonds'.... I realize owning it doesn't necessarily mean "we now give a damn." (Hence the successful lawsuit from fans about CR67 and NSNA being omitted from the 'complete' Blu-Ray set.)
Mildly Interesting Trivia: Donald Trump will be the first U.S. President since the franchise’s inception in 1962 to not have a James Bond film released during his presidency.
The James Bond franchise began in 1962, during the Kennedy administration. Since then, every U.S. President has seen at least one James Bond film released during their presidency, from one film during the two and a half year Ford administration, to four during the eight year Reagan administration. John F. Kennedy - Dr. No, From Russia With Love Lyndon B. Johnson - Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice Richard Nixon - On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Diamonds Are Forever, Live And Let Die Gerald Ford - The Man With The Golden Gun Jimmy Carter - The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker Ronald Reagan - For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View To A Kill, The Living Daylights George H.W. Bush - Licence To Kill Bill Clinton - GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough George W. Bush - Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace Barack Obama - Skyfall, Spectre Donald Trump - Joe Biden - No Time To Die Counting unofficial films, Casino Royale (1954) released during the Eisenhower administration, Casino Royale (1967) released during the Johnson administration, and Never Say Never Again released during the Reagan administration. To be fair, part of this is due to the 007 franchise itself, which took an unusually long time to make a sequel to Spectre; the film could have opened in 2018, the same 3 year gap as the one between Skyfall and Spectre. If No Time To Die was released in its original November 2019 date, or of COVID-19 did not exist and it released in April 2020, Trump would have had a Bond film. On the other hand, if Trump handled COVID-19 better, No Time To Die could have opened in November 2020 (and if, you know, he wasn't a terrible President, he could have won a 2nd term), and he could have had a Bond film as well. Credit to u/JGorgon for pointing this out a month ago.
After polling on all of the movies in 5 polls and polling on the winners of the previous poll, I have concluded that the winner is Casino Royale (2006). It got 199 votes in the first round and 78 in the second. The loser is Casino Royale (1954).
I think I've finally solved the James Bond 007 film timeline
I, having seen every single Bond movie, spent quite a lot of time researching and putting all this together. And quite frankly, I think this actually works. But feel free to comment on what you think so we could improve this timeline and put this thing to rest once and for all.
The Definitive Bond Timeline
It’s mostly in chronological order by release because many of the films prior to their sequels proceed to confirm that there's a continuity, except the Daniel Craig films where Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace are prequels, Skyfall where he plays an older Bond, and Spectre which completely messes up this whole timeline and gets its own because of it. We’ll talk about that later.
1.) Casino Royale (2006) Reason: James Bond is now a 00 agent. 2.) Quantum of Solace Reason: Direct sequel to Casino Royale (2006) 3.) Dr. No 4.) From Russia With Love Reason: Spectre wants revenge for Dr. No’s death 5.) Goldfinger 6.) Thunderball 7.) You Only Live Twice 8.) On Her Majesty’s Secret Service Reason: Bond’s still on the hunt for Blofeld and Spectre 9.) Diamonds are Forever Reason: Bond wants revenge for the ruthless murder of his wife, Tracey Bond. 10.) Live and Let Die 11.) The Man with the Golden Gun Reason: The return of Sheriff J.W. Pepper (who made an appearance in Live and Let Die) 12.) The Spy Who Loved Me Reason: Tracey Bond is subtly mentioned. 13.) Moonraker Reason: The return the greatest iconic henchman in film and the 007 franchise, Jaws (who made an appearance in Live and Let Die). 14.) Never Say Never Again [it is unofficial, but it does work in the canon timeline] Reason: We have an older Sean Connery playing a James Bond one more time and Blofeld is still alive. 15.) For Your Eyes Only Reason: We see Bond next to the grave of Tracey Bond at the beginning of the film. Blofeld is killed. 16.) Octopussy 17.) A View To A Kill 18.) The Living Daylights 19.) License To Kill Reason: Tracey Bond is subtly mentioned as well, but also becomes a driving motive for Bond to go after and kill Franz Sanchez when Sanchez nearly kills Felix Leiter (Bond’s very close friend who shows up in many previous Bond films) and get s Felix’s wife murdered. 20.) Goldeneye Reason: Tracey Bond is subtly mentioned by Alec. 21.) Tomorrow Never Dies 22.) The World is Not Enough Reason: Tracey Bond is subtly mentioned once again. 23.) Die Another Day Reason: We see many gadgets from previous films and now have a new Q. 24.) Skyfall Reason: Bond is old and sick of his job, we get, and yet again, another new Q as well there references to previous gadgets.
Because of Spectre *cough* *cough* *cough*, it makes it practically impossible for it to even fit in the canon timeline and it messes it all up because while it’s a sequel to Skyfall, it’s supposedly the first time Bond meets Ernst Blofeld. HOWEVER, Daniel Craig plays an older Bond in both Skyfall and Spectre but already met Blofeld for the first time in You Only Live Twice. Not only this but Blofeld shows up face-to-face with Bond in (of course...) YOLT, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (let’s just assume that Tracy Bond was killed some other way that doesn’t involve Bond meeting Blofeld), Diamonds are Forever, and For Your Eyes Only. So with this in mind, this timeline should fix this issue by, unfortunately, leaving out all these films where Blofeld makes an appearance or is mentioned… Honestly, it’s the only way this makes sense and you should take it with a grain of salt because the only issue I want you guys to help me out with is whether other not all the movies involving Spectre prior to Spectre (the movie), which is all the Sean Connery movies on here except Goldfinger, should stay on here or not.
1.) Casino Royale (2006) 2.) Quantum of Solace 3.) Dr. No 4.) From Russia With Love 5.) Goldfinger 6.) Thunderball 7.) Live and Let Die 8.) The Man with the Golden Gun 9.) The Spy Who Loved Me 10.) Moonraker 11.) Octopussy 12.) A View To A Kill 13.) The Living Daylights 14.) License To Kill 15.) Goldeneye 16.) Tomorrow Never Dies 17.) The World is Not Enough 18.) Die Another Day 19.) Skyfall 20.) Spectre
Casino Royale (1967) [Not Official] takes place in Timeline #3
Reason: Not only is there more than one James Bond agent, which makes it the only film that confirms the James Bond codename theory, but everyone literally dies at the end of the movie after a nuclear weapon is detonated. So while you could’ve just put this as the last film in the canon timeline, it arguably doesn’t work because Skyfall debunked this codename theory.
Casino Royale (1954) [Not Official] takes place in Timeline #4
Reason: The iconic British agent is not the James Bond we come to know and love in this first on-screen adaptation movie of Ian Fleming’s novels, but rather, Jimmy Bond who works for the CIA.
