Upcoming Spy Blu-rays: Casino Royale '67

At long last, more Bond is coming to Blu... but not, I'm afraid, the titles that many fans have long been hoping for, like The Spy Who Loved Me, You Only Live Twice or On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Instead, The Digital Bits reports that MGM will make the 1967 spoof version of Casino Royale widely available. The title was previously available in the high-def format only as a Best Buy exclusive. Casino Royale '67, starring David Niven, Woody Allen, Peter Sellers and Orson Welles (among many others), will be available everywhere (including Amazon) on February 7, 2012. The SRP is $19.99, and the disc will include the same extras available on the last DVD edition: an audio commentary with Bond historians Steven Jay Rubin and John Cork, the original theatrical trailer, and a five-part documentary produced by Rubin on the unbelievable behind-the-scenes shenanigans that went on during the making of Casino Royale.

That was an amazing movie. It had Ursula Andress, Joanna Petit, Daliah Lavi, Jacqueline Bisset, and Gabriella Licudi in it. And somehow it still managed to be an unwatchable mess.
