Book Vs. Movie "Casino Royale" (with NO Cheese!)

The 1958 Classic Ian Fleming Novel versus the 2006 Daniel Craig Movie

One half of the Margos is out this week due to laryngitis so we decided to once again post our Casino Royale ep which was so popular last year at this time. 

The Margos are both shaken and stirred in this episode where we talk about the Ian Fleming classic 1953 novel "Casino Royale" and the filmed adaptations. (We mainly stick with the Daniel Craig classic thankyouverymuch.)

In this ep the  Margos discuss:

  • The various James Bond theme songs
  • How a La Perla bathing suit for a man is a very good thing
  • The differences between the classic spy novel vs. film
  • The beauty of Daniel Craig
  • The different versions of evil with Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen)
  • Poker Vs Baccarat

  • Why every parent should listen to a reluctant psychic

Book Vs. Movie Podcast "Postcards From the Edge"

It's an all-out Carrie Fisher love fest talking about her 1987 first novel and the 1990 movie she herself adapted

 

 

The Margos are brokenhearted about the loss of both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds and dropped everything to bring this ep in a timely manner. In this show they discuss:

  • The interesting background of Carrie and her relationship with her famous mother. 
  • How she switched from her acting career to focus on writing hit novels and some of the funniest screenplays you never knew she helped out with her rapier wit. 
  • The differences between the novel and the film
  • The pairing of Meryl Street and Shirley MacLaine
  • How the topic of drugs is handled between the book and film
  • The fabulous singing by the leads
  • Fisher Stevens' career & documentary
  • How much we will miss them!

Audio clips:

  • Carrie Fishers reads from Postcards from the Edge
  • Shirley MacLanie and Meryl Streep scene "It twirled!!!"
  • Shirley MacLaine sings I'm Still Here
  • Meryl Streep sings "I'm Checkin' Out"
