Diamonds Are Forever

{2.5/5} “Weren’t you a blonde when I came in?”

Diamonds Are Forever, released in 1971

James Bond investigates a diamond smuggling ring operating in South Africa. He heads to Holland, though, because of intelligence that one of the smugglers is going to be there. He impersonates the smuggler, Franks, even wearing fake fingerprints thanks to Q. His contact is a woman named Tiffany Case.

I’d forgotten virtually everything about this movie — it’s just not that interesting. There are some nice visual moments but the story drags quite a bit.

Bond’s old CIA friend Felix Leiter helps him out once again.

The iconic opening credits sequences for this and 13 other Bond movies were done by Maurice Binder.

Stars Sean Connery and Jill St. John. Directed by Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger). The soundtrack by John Barry is less interesting than his usual scores.

This is probably the 2nd time I’ve seen it.

I previously reviewed On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
