    Casino Royale is on something called Reelz right now. And while it qualitatively sucks, it is an interesting and sometimes entertaining artifact of its time.

    Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls came IFC on an hour into Casino Royale. I've seen BTVOTD many times more than Casino Royale, but it is so off-the-charts awesome, especially Lance Rock, one of my favorite characters of all-time, I had to switch. So it wins.

    I vote for the one that involves a transvestite beheading.

    I'm not sure which Beyond the Valley of the Dolls you're talking about that came out in the 60s. I do love the movie of that name that was released in 1970. :p

    It's probably because of my boob fetish. I like watching Russ Meyer movies.

    You're right, but it's an allegory of the 60s.

    I got the original Casino Royale from Netflix expecting something good - it was only after I realized it sucked that I looked up info about it and learned they had to rework the entire movie because Peter Sellers quit midway through the movie and they tried to patch together the rest with some addition subplots.

    He didn't get along with Orson Welles, supposedly.

    I think the evidence shows that Peter Sellers didn't get along with much of anyone.

    OK, Bubbler, so take out BTVOTD.

    Who wins in a cheesefest between Casino Royale and Wild in the Streets? (1968)

    Wild in the Streets has:

    -- The ultimate square fantasy that the kids are gonna dose the water with LSD!

    -- A band that includes as its member a guy who can play a trumpet and guitar simultaneously, despite having a hook for a hand; a 15-year-old lawyer/bass player; and Richard Pryor on drums as Stanley X, the author of the Aboriginal Cook Book!

    -- Hal Holbrook actually lending dignity to his role as a somewhat sympathetic to the kids U.S. Senator!

    -- Shelley Winters at her screeching best as the hero's mother!

    -- Classic supposed-to-be-rock-songs-that-don't-rock like the Teen Rock the Vote anthem, 14 or Fight!

    -- A lead actor who claimed he schtupped Sharon Tate while she was pregnant with Roman Polanski's baby!

    FWIW, the soundtrack to Casino Royale (vinyl version), is almost an object of worship among some audiophiles for its sound.
