Countdown to Solace - Diamonds Are Forever

The Year: 1971 - #7

The Bond: Sean Connery returns

The Babes: Plenty O' Toole (named after her father)

Tiffany Case

The Big Bad: A now harrier, Blofeld

Notable Henchmen: Bambi and Thumper

Life partners Mr Wint and Mr Kidd

The Take: $43,819,547 or $222,039,904.10 worth of modern diamonds

Up or Down: Up. There are ample portions of cheese in this romp with a desert moon buggy chase of all things. But Connery seemed re-energized in the role and the movie was a good ol fun Bond hinting at the direction of the Roger Moore titles to come.
