38. Diamonds are Forever

"How far does your expertise go into diamonds, Commander Bond?"

"Well, let's see. Hardest substance on earth, cuts glass, suppose they've replaced dogs as a girls best friend but other than that..."

There are almost as many Blofeld's in this film as there are diamonds. There is only one Bond though, even if this is his second go-'round. Connery is here for the money and it shows, but the enjoyable assassins and a side of Jimmy Dean make this one worth the price of admission.

It's weird that this is the final official Connery Bond outing.

4 stars.
