Presumably No.1 is Moonraker (which would also be a sail) so that would preclude the 1967 version of Casino Royale as an official film. Which is why The Spy Who Loved Me confused me as it didn't make sense as a connection.

All shipshape now. :)

No was 11th official without Casino Royale


Dr. No (1962)
From Russia with Love (1963)
Goldfinger (1964)
Thunderball (1965)
You Only Live Twice (1967)
On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)
Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
Live and Let Die (1973)
The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)
The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
Moonraker (1979)

But its definitely shipshape :thumbup:
