The Spurlock Museum joins the UI's Rare Book & Manuscript Library and the Sousa Archives and Center for American Music in celebrating the 60th anniversary of Ian Fleming's first James Bond novel, "Casino Royale."  Unlike all the other Bond novels, which were sold to a single company, Eon Productions, for filming, Casino Royale went through several producers and was made into three startlingly different films. This exhibit tells the story of these three versions, from the modest CBS-TV production in 1954, to the bizarre, psychedelic spoof of 1967, to the 'canonical' 2006 Daniel Craig version, considered one of the best Bond films. We also trace the legal path that led to Never Say Never Again, a second version of Thunderball, and look at the never-produced Bond script, Warhead.  Props, scripts, posters and an Aston Martin will be displayed. The exhibit is open during Museum hours: Tuesday 12-5, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 9-5, Saturday 10-4, Sunday 12-4.
