# (2) 01 Sep 2009, 03:09PM: The Other James Bond: Casino Royale is on Hulu to watch for free. Not the 21st century one, the Peter Sellers/Orson Welles/Woody Allen/Ursula Andress/David Niven/Joseph Heller/Billy Wilder/&c. 1967 version. Leonard & I are about two-thirds through and this is the strangest film I've seen this year. Also, bespectacled 1967 Peter Sellers is hott and resembles Joe W.
It is pretty darn great. I was so confused when the new Casino Royale was about to come out, because it didn't make any sense to me that it could be a serious James Bond film.

Jess: it is supremely strange, isn't it? And now "Austin Powers" makes a new kind of sense, kind of like after I saw "Dr. No."We just finished watching it, and then read the Wikipedia & IMDB pages, and discussed how one could cut an hour to make a movie that makes sense. But I kind of adore the messed-upness and WTFs-per-minute of the existing work.
