A series of murders in South Africa lead MI6 to believe someone may be about to dump a large quantity of smuggled diamonds on the international market; James Bond uncovers the involvement of a former foe, Ernst Stavro Blofeld. After quitting the role of Bond, George Lazenby made one film and Sean Connery was offered $1.25M plus a share of the gross receipts to return for one more run. Humor is overplayed to compensate for the poor script; received an Oscar nomination for Best Sound.
