He was too old-fashioned to work, so I would sit at the typewriter for four or five hours a day in whatever hotel we were staying in, and just turn out pages and pages of scenes. I probably wrote several scripts during a year of traveling throughout Europe.
Gregory thought the story was too silly. Then, we make great movie. On December 14, , Gregory Ratoff died from leukemia and his widow was left holding the proverbial empty bank account. She was forced to sell any film properties her late husband owned to get out of debt. Feldman was one of the creditors to the Ratoff estate. The former lawyer turned talent scout and producer was handed the film rights to Casino Royale.
Handsome, tanned and sophisticated, He was the full definition of success. His company, Famous Artists, specialized in bringing new and aspiring talent to the studio system. Born April 26, in New York City. One of six children whose family name was Gould. The family moved to California a few years later. His first contact with the movie industry occurred during school vacations when he worked at the studios.
One of his earliest jobs was as an assistant cameraman for director John The Searchers Ford. Feldman started his own law practice in Hollywood and specialized in the contractual aspects of the film industry. He came up with the idea of creating jobs for his clients instead of fighting for the few available ones. I would wrap a story up, then stick an important name on the label, usually the name of a star or top director. The rest was easy.
No producer in his right mind would turn down a deal like that. During his years as a producer, Feldman would bring to the screen films that Hollywood was afraid to touch. After listening to an inspiring speech in by then U. Vice President Henry Wallace, Feldman had a brainstorm of an idea.
He conceived an episodic film that would highlight war fronts during WWII. He even tried to convince the studio heads to make this film on a non-commercial charity basis. Many famous actors and actresses agreed to volunteer their time for this epic production and were promised that they would only work 12 days. Film directors Lewis Milestone, Alexander Korda, and Howard Hawks among others were being touted to direct their own segments. Only one scene was filmed and that was of a burning wheat field in upper state California before Jack Warner sent word to shut down production because of escalating cost.
He often gave lavish gifts to his clients and kept close ties to studio moguls such as David O. Selznick, Jack Warner, and Darryl Zanuck. According to Ms. Charles K. Feldman, Jean Howard, and Louis B. He was barred from the studio lot. Feeling dejected and confused, he returned to Famous Artists and explained the situation to Feldman, who remained silent.
Eventually Cubby discovered the truth about his boss and Mayer, and would work on and off with Famous Artists thru the 30s, 40s and early s. Broccoli was born April 5, in New York. He and his family lived on a modest farm in Long Island. His father, mother, and brother would tirelessly grow vegetables to be driven in an old truck to the streets of New York to be sold.
Cubby was raised with integrity and believed strongly that good hard work should not be sacrificed needlessly. Dissatisfied, Broccoli would say no and then dump the truck load into the Harlem River. His parents were sadden by this act, but agreed nonetheless. Broccoli worked on several films including the Howard Hughes 's production of The Outlaw.
Learning various aspects of film making, he eventually ventured out into producing films with 's The Red Beret starring Alan Ladd. His partner and co-producer was Irving Allen, who was a client of his during the late s. Cubby would also establish a relationship with up and coming actors, directors, writers and technicians who would work in the Bond films. He and his Warwick Films partner Irving Allen produced 19 films during the s. Broccoli was always interested in the James Bond novels and wanted very much to film them.
He tried to convince his then-partner Irving Allen to help him acquire them, but Allen said the books were so bad that they were not good enough for television an insult since television was only capable of producing low budgeted productions. The film starred Peter Finch and it opened a week after another Oscar Wilde film premiered. Ironically it was produced by Gregory Ratoff. With dismal box office returns, Warwick Films went out of business and Broccoli and Allen parted their ways.
Meanwhile, Broccoli was still interested in the Bond novels. All except Thunderball and Casino Royale. Broccoli arranged to meet Saltzman and the two agreed to form a partnership and make the James Bond films. Eon Productions was born and Cubby arranged to meet with United Artists and, as potential backup, Columbia Pictures to negotiate bringing OO7 to the screen.
It was Arthur Krim, president of United Artist, who offered the fastest deal Saltzman had ever witnessed. Thanks in part to his nephew, David Picker, who was an avid Fleming fan Years earlier Picker tried to convince Alfred Hitchcock to buy the rights to Goldfinger. Feeling that they did not have a contract but only a handshake from Krim, Saltzman insisted on hearing from rival Columbia Pictures, and what sort of deal they would offer.
Broccoli reluctantly agreed and set up the meeting only to realize later that Columbia was not interested - an act the studio would certainly regret later. Feldman was preparing to produce Casino Royale with Hawks as the director.
However, in late , Feldman and Hawks received an advance print of Dr. No from England. Hawks quickly lost interest in Royale. Reasons were never fully explained but perhaps the idea of competing against his friend Cubby Broccoli, who was once an assistant director to him on the Howard Hughes western The Outlaw , may have been a factor. With Hawks off of Casino Royale , Feldman was more persistent. It would be redundant to say what happened next, but James Bond was huge in the s.
From 's Dr. Many spy movies capitalized on that success. Although those films made a profit, none of them came close to the success of the Bond films. While all this was happening, Feldman was watching from the sidelines. At the time, it was not known whether Feldman knew of the deal Broccoli and Saltzman made with producer Kevin McClory for the rights to present Thunderball. Facing the possibilities that Casino Royale was not going to see the light of day until , Feldman approached Columbia with a script by the late Ben Hecht and an unknown musical stage actor by the name of Terrence Cooper, his ace-in-the-hole Sean Connery look-alike.
Columbia was sold and Feldman begin pre-production in early They agreed to co-produce with Feldman and offered actor Sean Connery as his leading man, an important factor to the success of Royale. Unfortunately, Connery was making ugly noises during the production of Thunderball. According to some sources, he read in Variety that crooner Dean Martin was making more money in the first Matt Helm film, The Silencers, than he did in his first four OO7 films combined. Connery was understandably unhappy with his current financial conditions and was asking to be a co-producing partner with Broccoli and Saltzman.
Broccoli felt this was not a good deal and Connery decided that the fifth OO7 film would be his last. Hearing about this, Feldman asked Connery if he would be interested in doing Casino Royale after his contract ended with Eon. According to director Val Guest, during the negotiating phase with Eon, Feldman was given another Casino Royale screenplay by Bond veteran and screenwriter Richard Maibaum.
The script was to be the sixth Eon produced OO7 film. It was shown to Guest by Feldman but sadly the script has gone missing. Broccoli was not in a position to play second fiddle to his former boss. The pending deal fell through and Casino Royale was thrown into the proverbial Harlem river of film deals. I already did that and it was great. I like you, too. Feldman was furious with this outcome and, according to screenwriter Wolf Mankowicz, decided to ruin the Bond business by spoofing it.
Moore commented later by saying he had not heard anything from Mr. Feldman but kind of fancied himself as a OO7. The original choice for playing James Bond was Lawrence Harvey. Determined to have Sellers perform in Casino Royale , Feldman hired screenwriter Wolf Mankowitz to pick up where the late Ben Hecht left off and create a new role, croupier Nigel Force.
You must be out of your bloody mind. But I think the Bond image is too fixed. But what really sold Sellers was the idea of a little man being asked to play Bond for a day. He worked closely with Feldman, writer John Law, and his personal friend, director Joe McGrath by trying to inject more humor such as the scene where he impersonates Hitler, Napoleon and Toulouse-Lautrec.
Peter Sellers was well known for portraying various parts. On the left he mimics a Cary Grant-like pose as James Bond. On the right, he dresses up as artist Toulouse-Lautrec. McGrath was a Scottish television director and worked with Sellers on shows such as Tempo. Sellers convinced Feldman that McGrath was the right choice to direct the film. A comment that referred to the large scale production, with an all star cast including David Niven from ten years before.
The only difference between the two films would be the adaptations from their original sources. Joanna Pettet ended up portraying the sexy daughter, Mata Bond. Whatever the system, Casino Royale certainly has the largest of any cast of beautiful women.
Three famous Bond girls. Perhaps the biggest problem behind the scenes was Peter Sellers. Sellers marriage was on the rocks and he was chasing after her every weekend in order to save it. He refused to listen to any production assistant who was in-charge of getting him to the set and reportedly was late to the set daily or would not arrive at all. Sellers ego would be his Achilles heel, he would really be annoyed if people did not pay attention to his needs as an actor.
On one occasion, Leo Jaffe, the executive vice president of Columbia, visited the set and made a mistake by thinking Woody Allen was Peter Sellers. Reportedly ignoring Sellers. Welles, who played the part of Le Chiffre, gave a sarcastic comment to Sellers concerning his tardiness and causing the film to go over budget.
This made Sellers so irate that he insisted that his scenes with Welles be done with a stand-in. Because of this on-set rivalry only one shot is shown during the entire scene with both Sellers and Welles in the same frame. Sellers eventually lashed out against his long time friend Joseph McGrath and literally disappeared for weeks forcing the production to come to a halt.
According to Val Guest, Feldman was furious and decided to terminate Sellers contract, firing him from the picture. Then he put plan two into operation and began rewrites and building of newer sets at Pinewood Studios and Elstree Studios. Richard Lester was also asked to join but turn down the offer because he was friends with both Sellers and McGrath. The film would now be directed in four parts "Our concept for this film includes not only multiple stars, but also multiple directors," said Feldman in the March 2, edition of Variety.
The situation was too much for McGrath. He left the unfinished film after he completed his contractual agreement. Sellers eventually came back to film other scenes, but kept calling his friend McGrath and begging him to return. Charlie will give you a Rolls Royce if you come back. He gave me one! McGrath did not. John Huston was fresh off of finishing the epic film The Bible before he was invited to direct a sequence of Royale.
He was asked how did he get from King James to Ian Fleming? Feldman then offered Huston a painting if he would play the part, so he did, bald and with a Guards mustache. However, he preferred to be paid not by a painting but by a Greek bronze head, which he recently fallen for. Ironically, it turned out to be worthless. John Huston directing a scene at M's castle and Deborah Kerr as a converted double agent.
Actress Deborah Kerr found herself in Royale by accident. She dropped by to visit her friend, John Huston, and was given a choice guest part that grew from ten days into two months of work. Her part became so outrageous that in the end she had converted to being a Catholic nun. Harris, one of the many unsung heroes behind-the-scenes, added that Ursula Andress, who plays Vesper Lynd, was excited about a circus scene where she would be riding atop an elephant. She had Harris create a shocking pink Elephant Boy outfit with pink-blue feathers.
Peter Sellers changed the scene where he and Ursula Andress are riding an elephant and made it into a dream sequence with kilted Highlanders. The Elephant Boy costume can be seen worn by Ursula in the spy control room. Unfortunately, Peter Sellers had one of his nightly prophetical dreams where his mother was saying not to do the scene because it was dangerous.
So the circus scene went away and kilted Highlanders was born. Ursula was so upset that Feldman created another scene where she could wear the Elephant Boy outfit while prancing around her spy control room with David Niven. An expensive solution, but one must feel sorry for the elephant owner when he arrived with his five-toed pachyderm at the Shepperton Studio gates, only to be told from a disgruntled security guard that he was at the wrong studio.
Director Robert Parrish replaced McGrath and was perplexed when he was greeted with a huge, bare, white, cylindrical set. But then Peter came up with his dream sequence and those damn pipers. Feldman paid him a case of champagne for his brief cameo role. Director Val Guest said in a Scarlet Street interview, "I went on under contract for eight weeks, and I was still under contract nine months later.
Feldman was a madman. There were days when you could hug him, and then other days when you could throttle him! Guest was in charge of directing the scenes with Woody Allen as the evil Dr. Allen was quoted as saying he would have to leave in the middle of a sentence if this film went on much longer.
By the time he actually started work he was on overtime. Then this stuff was never heard from again, in any form whatever. Allen demanded a signed confession from Feldman that he, Woody, did none of the writing, although he tried. Take good care of old Ken, Feldman said. Noah's island hideout from this deleted scene. Legendary stuntman and director Richard Talmadge, was in charge of the second unit. His contribution to the film is the final chaotic battle scene inside Casino Royale.
The entire scene took six weeks to film and featured actors and extras. Insurance firm, Lloyds of London, was so worried about this scene that they suspended the insurance during this portion of the film. The main reason was due to Talmadge, who had directed the train wreak scene in How the West Was Won , when one of the stuntmen was crushed under fallen timber.
He suffered a heart attack during the production, which he blamed on Sellers. Everyday a new crises with people who have reached a certain point, good or bad, in their careers. Stars are no real insurance for the success of a picture, you know, except possible for the performance they give. In my grave. Columbia Pictures announced that Casino Royale would open no sooner than Christmas Any form of a competing Bond film would spell disaster at the box office. Three more deleted scenes - Top: Vesper is found dead on top of the roulette table.
Right: Moneypenny evades Dr. Noah's guards by disguising herself in a wetsuit and fake duck homage to Goldfinger's pre-credit segment. Noah's psychedelic maze. By early January, John Huston walked away from the film with scenes still not filmed.
He told a surprised Val Guest that he would be shooting his remaining scenes. Guest was now left alone to finish the monstrosity. For his dedicated commitment, Feldman offered an additional credit in the form of Coordinating Director. Guest barked, "This is coordinated? Heavy publicity followed in the months leading up to the premiere. Movie theaters hung huge posters depicting the actors and a nude, tattooed covered lady.
Terrence Cooper and Barbara Bouchet work overtime to save the free world. With all the negative morale during the production, Feldman was convinced he had a sure winner and proceeded to prove to the world that his film was the ultimate crowd pleaser. He unveiled a 62' x ' sign of the classic tattooed lady and served Hebrew National hot dogs and champagne.
Also in attendance was 60's pop icon Twiggy, shown viewing the trailer to Casino Royale. Unfortunately, Feldman was unable to complete the film in time for the festival. Legend has it that the film almost did not make it to its April 13, premiere at the London Odeon Leicester Square theater.
Apparently a final cut was being prepared inside the projection room. The U. According to the report, several thousand persons were denied admission to a 4am screening of Casino Royale. The theater manager, John P. Sullivan, decided to run the movie two hours earlier because the crowd, mainly youths, had grown to an estimated 15, Before order was restored three hours later, some 30 persons had been injured, several stores looted and cars smashed. Fifteen persons were arrested on charges ranging from drunkenness to unlawful assembly.
As policemen converged on the mob outside, the capacity crowd inside the theater also became unruly. They were fighting in the aisles every time someone left his seat," Dubrawsky said. I never dreamed that this situation would have resulted. To this date, debate continues whether Feldman's film actually did damage to future Bond films. There is no doubt that the 60s spy craze was fading and underground films such as Easy Rider and Billy Jack were becoming popular.
Bond films such as 's Live and Let Die were still attracting audiences, but not as good compared to Goldfinger or Thunderball a decade earlier. For it would not be until 's Moonraker when Bond would break new U. By the late s the LP record could fetch up to several hundred dollars.
The reason behind this was the way the recording studio processed the record. By increasing the volume to near over-modulation, the sound gave most stereo sound systems a run-for-its-money. On May 25, , Charles K. Feldman died of cancer. Unfortunately it would not be a rating blockbuster the network was hoping.
The film would eventually fall into syndicated broadcast oblivion for the next two decades. To Bond fans worldwide the version was a confusing mess. However, in the Director of Film Studies at the University of Colorado, Robert von Dassanowsky, wrote a very compelling article on the artistic values of Casino Royale. For years after , the film rights to Casino Royale hanged in limbo.
One question was asked about the fate of Casino Royale and whether Eon owned the rights. It's a very heavy story in a way. To fall in love with a woman who is a double agent and be completely misled after all Bond has been through with her is tough. Get our daily newsletter in your inbox Subscribe.
