Casino Royale (1967) (part 4 of 13)
Wow, a Mega Recap! I feel like I’ve just been initiated into a cult! I keep waiting for Sydney Pollack to show up and tell me it was all just a big Tupperware party.
We crossfade into Sir James’ bedroom, later the same night. He’s sitting up in bed reading, and like always, he’s dressed for the occasion, with pristine white socks, a knee-length white nightshirt, and the cutest little white silk nightcap, complete with a tassel [!]. Of course, he has his other nightcap—the whiskey he looted from the dinner table—with him as well. What’s interesting about this ensemble is that the nightshirt has a pleated front, like a tuxedo shirt. Poor James Bond. Even when he’s not wearing the tux, it’s like he still has to have a bit of it with him as a security blanket.
