Breaking Bond Part XXIV: Casino Royale

They say you can do anything if you put your mind to it.  For proof of this all one would have to do is look at Lieutenant Commander Ian Fleming. 

At the age of 44 years old after what could have constituted a lifetime of service during WW2, he had settled into the life of a reporter – yet something was burning inside of him. 

What came next was something remarkable.  Casino Royale. 

What served as Fleming’s first novel introducing the world to Commander James Bond ended up being a comic strip, a TV show, a 1967 spy spoof movie, and of course 54 years later EON Productions 21st Bond picture in 2006. 

Yes, it was the 21st or 22nd Bond picture yet somehow ‘Casino Royale’ starring Daniel Craig would turn into something so much more.  In a decade that had already seen the rise of CGI, the creation of the iPhone, and something called social media there was no way anyone could expect what Fleming’s “blunt instrument” from the 1950’s had in store for us all.

So go ahead and send your first tweet and take a long last look at the planet Pluto because it’s time to sit back and relax Mom & Dad won’t be back for at least an hour and Welcome To The Latch Key Kids Present “Breaking Bond Part XXIV: Casino Royale”
