cas003b. PaulPlowman says about these pics: "It doesn't exist. The first story is a set, and the rest is a matte. The shot of the building with people and cars moving in front of it is a split-screen shot."

cas003c. And christoph404 adds: "It looks very artificial and the colour of the building up to the first storey is slightly different from the upper part which would suggest a floating minature of the upper storeys above the "Casino Royale" sign placed closer to the camera, or a simple matte shot." Once again Greg has found out some useful information for us.

Casino Royale (1967) - Number 10? Looks very much like Downing Street, London, and, years ago one could actually walk up to the front door, without fear of terrorist bombs or police bullets. Britmovie is correct, it is a studio set, see http://avengerland.theavengers.tv/studios/mgmblot.htm (RL)
