Bond girl: Tiffany CaseFebruary 16, 2015
Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
Actress: Jill St. John
Bond connection: Tiffany Case is a small-time smuggler unwittingly working for Bond’s nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld and his terrorist organisation, SPECTRE. Posing as gangster Peter Franks, Bond arranges a partnership with her, but this time it is to investigate her role in Blofeld’s latest criminal scheme. She initially believes that she and “Franks” are going to make millions, but gets caught up in much more than she bargained for when the real Peter Franks arrives on her doorstep. From the moment she and Bond find Plenty O’Toole soaking in Tiffany’s swimming pool, drowned mistakenly instead of her, Tiffany helps Bond follow the path of the smuggled diamonds until the trail leads to Blofeld.
By the end of the film, Tiffany has helped Bond defeat Blofeld, and the two go on a romantic cruise together. They are briefly interrupted by an assassination attempt by Blofeld’s henchmen, Mr. Wint & Mr. Kidd, but Bond foils it, and the two sail off into the sunset.
