Diamonds Are Forever (1971)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Glitter Bugs

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Diamonds Are Forever (1971) was Sean Connery's final Bond movie, at least until the "unofficial" Never Say Never Again twelve years later. (Did Connery actually say "never again" after making it?) Though it reunited him with director Guy Hamilton, it was the silliest of the Connery films. Some of the stranger bits involve the hippie henchmen "Mr. Wint and Mr. Kid" and Bond's escape from the bad guys in a moon buggy. Sausage king Jimmy Dean plays a Howard Hughes-like entrepreneur. Blofeld returns, played by Charles Gray, smuggling diamonds and cooking up more wicked plots. Happily, Jill St. John and Lana Wood are the Bond girls (no complaints there), and Shirley Bassey returned to sing the title song.
