Agent Cooper (Cooper) is to be next official 007 and undergoes rigorous training; most of it in the art of romancing women. Miss Moneypenny works overtime schooling him on the nuances of the job! Sir James finds his daughter Mata Bond (Pettet) and she is eventually sent by cab to Germany to spy school. Meanwhile, Evelyn Tremble (Sellers), a baccarat expert and author on the subject, meets Vesper Lynd (Andress) and she recruits him to impersonate Bond and defeat Le Chiffre (Welles) at baccarat at Casino Royale.

Mata is taken in broad daylight by a mounted palace guard riding a horse aboard a flying saucer. All the 007's meet up at the headquarters of SMERSH, an evil criminal empire where they find little Jimmy Bond (Allen), Sir James' nephew, is the mastermind behind all the mayhem. His grand scheme is to kill off all the men in the world taller than he so that he will be able to get girls to love him. Jimmy is tricked into ingesting a tiny bomb disguised as an antacid tablet.
