Sorry, also incorrect.



I had to Google it.

That's interesting because it mixes and matches two different Bond legal issues.

The Casino Royale issue and the Thunderball issue.

They could have just as easily called it the Thunderball Casino

Quantum of Solace. I say that only because the movie had a chase scene around Monte Carlo. Maybe they raced past the casino.

Trivia time! Quantum of Solace is the only Bond movie where Bond does not have sex.

Ding, ding! Winner!

In "Never Say Never Again", bond enters the casino and walks past this card...



It's unknown if this was simply an Easter Egg for Bond fans or if the film's producers were thumbing their noses at EON Productions since, at the time, EON didn't own Casino Royale.

------------------------------------------

Trivia

1)
In NSNA, Domino is briefly seen losing at roulette before she enters the video game arcade. So I was wrong earlier in this thread. Roulette is technically played in a Bond film.


2) Speaking of Goldeneye and baccarat 5 hands. In that film, Xenia Onatopp stands on a 5 and loses to Bond's 6 hand.

3) You'd think that of all the casinos in the world, you'd be able to play Chemin de Fer at Casino de Monte-Carlo. Unfortunately, its website shows that Punto Banco is the only baccarat it offers.

Today痴 question of the day at the Las Vegas Advisor is about James Bond and the casino games he plays. Specifically, chemin de fer and how it differs from baccarat.

And Mike is the guest expert to answer it!

Mike doesn稚 include a link to this thread. But I did.

I request that after all the Bond movies have been analyzed, we break down the casino scenes of Paul's grandfather in "A Hard Day's Night."

Well, he does play at the Le Cercle casino, which is where Bond plays baccarat at the start of "Dr. No", so there is a connection.



The girl with Paul's grandfather, incidentally, is played by Margaret Nolan who also gives Bond a rubdown in "Goldfinger".

While we await the next gambling scene (and the next film) here are a few more Bond trivia questions ranging from easy to difficult...



001) What are the two films in which the actress playing the main Bond girl has been older than the actor playing Bond?

002) Bond actor Roger Moore suffered from hoplophobia which is the fear of what?

003) In the official Eon series, what are the only two films that don't involve a helicopter at some point?

004) The last time Bond was seen smoking was in which film?

005) Who holds the record for the most times a single actor has played the same role in a film series?

006) Bond's famous Walther PPK is the same model gun used by what world leader to commit suicide?

007) Including non-Eon productions, how many actors have played the role of Felix Leiter?


No searching please.

On Her Majesty's SS, '69


002) Bond actor Roger Moore suffered from hoplophobia which is the fear of what? fear of not enough hops in the beer

003) In the official Eon series, what are the only two films that don't involve a helicopter at some point? you stumped me at 'Eon'

004) The last time Bond was seen smoking was in which film?
Diamonds are Forever?


005) Who holds the record for the most times a single actor has played the same role in a film series? this is either too easy or too hard

006) Bond's famous Walther PPK is the same model gun used by what world leader to commit suicide?
I'm guessing Hitler, but do they know that for sure?



007) Including non-Eon productions, how many actors have played the role of Felix Leiter?
forgive me for looking up what that role is and looking at images only, but I think I learned how many that way.

No searching please.
