CONTEST: Win The Collector's Edition Of The 1967 Casino Royale On DVD!

Well, I know I promised this contest two weeks ago, and I'm sorry for the delay, but yesterday's Double O Section milestone seems like a good occasion for running it now anyway! Here's your chance to win the 1967 version of Casino Royale, in a brand new Collector's Edition. This all-star spoof version of Fleming's first novel may be pretty awful, but it's also awfully entertaining. You can tell it was directed by five directors, and some sequences work better than others, but boy does it look great! Lovers of Sixties pop culture (and Sixties women), especially, will find much to admire. But the story behind Charles K. Feldman's three-ring circus of a production has always fascinated me more than the movie itself, and the best part of this Collector's Edition is a new five-part documentary on exactly that, produced by The Complete James Bond Movie Encyclopedia author Steven Jay Rubin. A surprising number of Casino Royale survivors (and that does seem the appropriate term) give interviews, and Rubin and all-around Bond expert John Cork fill in the rest on an informative audio commentary. For a chance to win, simply send an email with the subject heading "CASINO ROYALE" including your name and mailing address to the Double O Section by midnight, Pacific Time on Tuesday, December 9, 2008. Winners will be announced in one week's time, next Wednesday. Good luck!

One entry per person, please. Double entries will be disqualified. One winner will be drawn at random and announced on Wednesday, December 9, 2008. Winners’ names will be posted here and they will be notified via email. All entries will be deleted immediately after the contest’s close, and no personal information will be retained or transmitted to any third parties. The contest is open to anyone, in any country, although this DVD is NTSC Region 1, so make sure that you have a compatible player. Unfortunately, the Double O Section cannot assume responsibility for items lost or damaged in transit.
