Casino Royale (1967) (part 11 of 13)
Here I am, back up in this mutha!
Sellers-Bond and Vesper return to the casino director’s office. The casino director has decided to become less of a dick here, and actually compliments Bond’s performance. They have pointless dialogue about whether Bond would like a check for his winnings now. Surprisingly, the answer isn’t “well, two months from now would be okay, if you can manage it, but really, whenever you want is fine with me”, but rather yes, now. Sellers even throws the “willingly” line back at the director as the guy excuses himself. Man, somebody’s feeling high on himself right about now.
Suddenly, Vesper looks over, startled, because one of the many stuffed tigers in the director’s office is now sticking out its tongue [!] and the tongue is moving back and forth. And no, we never will find out why the dead tiger has a moving tongue. (Yes, for a movie like this, that’s quite shocking.)
