About the Title

The inspiration for Casino Royale itself came from a few different sources. In 1941 Fleming and the Director of Naval Intelligence, Rear Admiral John Godfrey, had a stopover in neutral Portugal. Both enjoyed gambling and went to a casino. As they left, Fleming wondered aloud what would have happened if the men they were playing against had been German spies. That idea remained with him and evolved into the plot of Casino Royale, which he wrote in less than two months at the beginning of 1952.
