High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - January 26, 1972, High Point, North Carolina Movie review the new James Bond in t necessarily improved one James Bond is Back in the person of Sean Connery. A diamonds Are forever is no a Goldfinger a however although the producers of the new movie which is playing at the Martin twin i have decorated it with a title song Sung by Shirley basses who also did the title song for the earlier film. Blofeld is the Nemesis but he hardly seems the formidable menace that Goldfinger was. And Bond himself is changed. The change is More than just the fact that Bond is older. There is a change in the attitude of Bond and in the Way this movie asks its audience to look at him. A diamonds Are forever is interesting Only for this a a new Bond it presents. Bond still has his narrow escapes. He is faced with cremation and. Later with burial in a pipeline. That he survives is played for laughs rather than suspense however. The two major Chase sequences in this movie Are More comic than exciting agent 007 is reduced to the level of a Keystone cop. Bond is put Down in other ways. His sexual prowess now seems faded. He shares a Plush bridal suite with Jill St. John but that is about As far As his experience with girls goes in a diamonds Are the movie does have one soft Core moment however when Bond i s confronted with two scantily Clad girls one Black and one White who take him on in a karate match. It is another sequence of comedy in this movie. It May be that Bond is merely reflecting the times. The cold War derring do of the sixties is jaded. Bond is now like the spy who came in from the cold. He does his Job but he finds no satisfaction in the work. It is All one and the same to him. The movie also offers some touches o f eccentricity. Two of its villains whose exact relationship to Blofeld is never made Clear Are homosexual lovers. Jimmy Dean appears briefly in the role of a millionaire who Heads a giant Industrial Empire and who is a Recluse living in the Penthouse atop his Plush Las vegas hotel and whom no one has seen for five years. How is that for eccentricity a diamonds Are forever moves on one level. The screenplay by Richard Maibaum and Tom Mankiewicz gets Bond involved with Diamond smugglers. He learns that Blofeld is using the diamonds in a scheme to blackmail the major Powers to his submission. The screenplay is ambivalent Between its comedy and its action without any peaks in laughter in excitement in suspense. The direction by Guy Hamilton is detached from All that is happening. A diamonds Are forever tried to make Bond seem almost human but the movie does not know what to do with him in this new state. Robert Marks.
